Tips for Making Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Slow cooker pork roast is incredibly simple to make, as long as you choose the right cut of pork and follow a few key steps:

  • Best pork for pork roast – Although this recipe was initially created for pork loin, it works brilliantly with pork shoulder and scotch fillet roast as well. Pork shoulder and scotch fillet are excellent choices due to the marbled fat that melts during cooking, resulting in mouthwateringly juicy meat.
  • Slow cooking pork loin – As a lean cut of pork, pork loin needs to be cooked slowly to ensure tenderness. This forgiving cooking method allows for a longer cooking time without negatively impacting the pork.
  • Season the pork – To enhance flavor, season the pork with at least salt and pepper. A spice rub can also be used for extra depth of flavor.
  • Searing – Browning the pork before or after slow cooking is crucial for developing rich flavor.
  • Cooking times – For pork loin, cook for 4 to 5 hours on low. Pork shoulder, on the other hand, requires 10 hours on low for a 1.5 – 2.5kg / 3 – 5 lb roast. Due to its tougher nature, shoulder needs a longer cooking time to break down the fibers and fat.

Slow Cooker Pork Loin Spice Rub & Sauce

You won’t believe how few ingredients are required for the spice rub and sauce in this Slow Cooker Pork Loin Roast. The star of the show is the Honey Butter Sauce, which is made from the juices remaining in the slow cooker after the pork is cooked. While the sauce may seem thin at first, reducing it and thickening it with cornflour creates a syrupy texture that perfectly complements the lean meat. The sauce is not only a game-changer for the pork but also an excellent accompaniment to your veggies and potatoes.

But once he’s settled in at the golden retriever boarders’ place, he forgets all about it, although we like to think he’s just being strong on the outside while crying on the inside.
