  • Trim fat from pork. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3- to 4-quart crockery cooker.
  • In a small bowl combine oregano, ginger, and pepper. Rub spice mixture over entire surface of meat.
  • Spray a large unheated, nonstick skillet with nonstick coating. Preheat over medium heat. Add roast and brown on all sides.
  • Transfer meat to the crockery cooker; add onions.
  • 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.
  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Transfer roast to a serving platter; keep warm.

    Love it! I changed the recipe only a little bit as I did not have any orange juice. Used "Guava Passion Fruit Orange Juice" from Minutemaid instead. Also, substituted brown sugar for the granulated. It turned out fabulous. Several of my friends asked for the recipe! Will make this again for sure! Thank you for sharing this, Dancer, your recipes are always top notch!

    WOW! This was delicious! I had purchased a Pork Roast and just was not sure what to do with it. So, I looked it up. I found this recipe, and it had some great reviews. So, I went to the store and bought the other items I needed. I did not have my crockpot available so I bought a disposible roast pan. I did everything the exact same way, but cooked it in the oven. It was set at about 400-450 degrees and I cooked it about 4-5 hours. I also covered it with foil. I totally forgot about it, never basted it or anything. WOW.. was it moist and juicy. Very tasty. I hate using cornstarch, so what I did was drain all the juices off into a pan, then let it boil. (did not remove fat, it wasn't very fatty meat) and then added a watery flour paste. Couple tablespoons. It thickened up and I served it with Mashed potatoes, homemade rolls and stuffing. My husband LOVED it, and went in for seconds. This is a new family favorite! Thanks for posting! :)
