This turned a plain pork roast into a special meal! Not only was it delicious, but it was EASY too! The aroma while cooking was wonderful, but the glaze is what puts the roast over the top. I cooked the roast until done, but still in one piece. I drained the cooking liquid from the crockpot before starting the glazing process. The finished roast didn't have the deep colored glazing like the photo I'd seen on the net, but it was delicious. This is a company worthy roast, but I would glaze the roast in the oven in that case for a prettier presentation. Served with Orange Vinaigrette Brown Rice Salad. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)
I saw this recipe on Pinterest and figured I would see if anyone had posted it on this site because it looked really good. I'm glad I found the recipe because the glaze for the pork was outstanding! I followed the recipe as written except that I used a 4 lb pork loin. I cooked it for 9 hours and it was completely cooked through and too tender to cut so I shredded it. I also drained most of the liquid from the crock pot before I started basting it so I could shred it in the pot when it was finished. The only problem that I ran into was that I didn't have enough glaze to mix in with all the shredded pork but I'm sure this is because of the size of the roast that I used. If you are using anything over the suggested 2 lb roast, you would probably be best off doubling the glaze recipe. Thank you for posting! This was a really wonderful dinner.
What a disappointment! The chemistry looked good on paper, but the end result was not what I expected. I followed the instructions to the letter. The beautiful roast (from our local butcher) came out tough and was overcooked. The "glaze" was tart where I expected more sweet and sour. Hopefully I can find something to save the poor leftovers of what should have been a fantastic roast. Will never use this recipe again...if I could have left 0 stars I would have. Cooks, beware!
The pork turned out so tender. The glaze is a must. Just a little bit sweet. Goes so well with the pork. Thanks Taylor's Mommy :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
This roast is wonderful and so easy to prepare. I too drained the water after cooking before I added the glaze. I found the glaze didn't thicken enough so I added another 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch and then it was perfect. Everyone loved this! Made for Fall PAC 2012. Thanks for the recipe!
A friend sent this recipe to me from pinterest as well. Said her whole family (a.k.a. kids ate the roast) so I tried it. Was great. Even my husband had some and he's a crock pot snob (wink). Only change is that I used 3 lbs of thick pork chops (from pork loin). I also drained the liquid before adding glaze. Thanks for taking the time to post.
