An easy slow cooker recipe that provides a great Pacific Islands flavor. Best if pork roast marinades overnight. The preparation time indicated does not include marinade time. Found on

It was ok. I would use a low sodium soy sauce next time. I guess I still prefer the traditional method of braising the roast on the stove before putting it in the crockpot on low. Season well with herbs and onions. Let cook for several hours.
