  1. Place onions in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, salt and pepper. Cut roast in half; rub with garlic mixture. Put roast in the slow cooker and add bay leaves.
  2. In a small bowl, combine hot water and honey; stir in the soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and cloves. Pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°F.

The flavor of this was great. The onions were almost too much for my family and the ginger gave it some zing. Everyone enjoyed it however. I did half the recipe and cooked it for about 3 hours on low. Turned out juicy and moist.

This was super easy to make and my whole house smelled *wonderful* as it cooked. My husband has always claimed to detest pork but he gobbled this up as did my picky toddler. This recipe is a keeper! I served it with quinoa and also steamed some broccoli that I sprinkled with sesame oil & Ponzu sauce and it was fantastic with the pork.
