Directions

  1. Trim fat from pork. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3- to 4-quart crockery cooker.
  2. In a small bowl combine oregano, ginger, and pepper. Rub spice mixture over entire surface of meat.
  3. Spray a large unheated, nonstick skillet with nonstick coating. Preheat over medium heat. Add roast and brown on all sides.
  4. Transfer meat to the crockery cooker; add onions.
  5. In a bowl combine 1 cup of the orange juice (chill remaining orange juice), the sugar, grapefruit juice, steak sauce, and soy sauce. Pour over meat in the crockery cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
  7. Transfer roast to a serving platter; keep warm.
  8. For sauce, measure pan juices into a glass measure. Skim off fat. Add additional orange juice, if necessary, to make 2-1/4 cups.
  9. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch, remaining 1/4 cup orange juice, and the reserved orange peel; stir in reserved pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
  10. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Pass sauce with meat. If desired, serve with noodles.
