This is a sweet/savory pork raost recipe for the slowcooker, but I suppose could be adapted to the oven. The carrots are optional but they do go very well with the sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using the carrots, place them on the bottom of your slowcooker.
  2. Next, put the boneless pork roast in the slowcooker.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients until well-blended.
  4. Pour sauce mixture over pork.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until pork juices are no longer pink and tests done w/ thermometer.

I was really excited to try this recipe. I do not normal care of pork...but it sounded really good. Sadly...I was deeply disappointed! My husband who isn't picky about any food didn't even like it. The pork had no flavor...the sauce turned a weird mushy brown too. Overall it wasn't terrible...but it was FLAVORLESS. We added some salt and that helped a little...but not a lot.

We tried this recipe tonight and it turned out wonderfully! The roast was very tender and fell apart and it was very flavorful. We used the carrots and they were delicious, too. Maybe only thing to make it better would be more sauce! We followed as stated except we did not have rosemary or apple cider vinegar, but still turned out great! Thanks!

This turned out really good. I made it with a very cheap cut of pork (it wasn't boneless). i added 1/2 cup apricots. The family loved it. I will definitely make it again.
