Every once in a while, pork roasts at my local grocery store go on sale for incredibly cheap, so I buy them in bulk (seriously, I look like a crazy lady with a cart full of pork roasts), but I run out of ideas of what to do with them. This recipe kind of came together by accident, but my kids and husband LOVED it! I took some of the juices from the bottom of the crock pot, mixed in some cornstarch, and it made an amazing gravy to drizzle over the top. An awesome meal that takes only minutes to prepare (but looks and tastes like you spent a lot of time on it!).
Slow Cooker Honey Balsamic Pork Roast
1 (2-3 pound) shoulder pork roast
salt and pepper
1/4 cup honey
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of the pork roast and place inside the slow cooker. Drizzle honey over the top of the roast. In a medium bowl, mix together beef broth, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder. Pour over the roast. Cook on low for 8-10 hours (which is the method I prefer- low and slow!) or you could cook on high for 5-6 hours (but I feel like it never falls apart as easily as when you cook it on low all day long).
When it’s finished, remove juices from bottom of slow cooker and place in a small saucepan over medium high heat. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of corn starch and 1 tablespoon of water. Pour cornstarch mixture into saucepan and whisk quickly. When mixture starts to thicken, pour over roast and enjoy!
Makes 6-8 servings (depending on size of roast).
