Sunday Favorite: Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Roast Recipe

We always looked forward to Sunday dinner while we were growing up. It was a day when we could all sit down together and catch up! During the week we were off to soccer, softball, tumbling, piano lessons, tennis and church activities. Sunday we knew we could slow down and enjoy family time over a delicious dinner! Looking back now, those are the memories we treasure. Our mom would plan ahead for Sunday dinner. Then we would have more quality time together. That is why we love this slow cooker BBQ Pork Roast. It really takes only 5 minutes prep time and our amazing slow cooker does the rest. We put everything in the slow cooker and off to church we went. No more worries! After a few hours your house will fill up with the most amazing smell of BBQ Pork Roast. It turns out so moist with a delicious BBQ coating! Our kids gobbled up this pork in no time at all! Even our picky eaters loved it! Share your favorite Sunday Dinner Recipe and you will be entered to win $1,000 (See below).

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Roast

2.5 pound pork loin roast, boneless

1 cup barbecue sauce (any brand of barbecue sauce)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon liquid smoke


Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub sea salt and garlic powder over the pierced pork. Place the pork in a slow cooker that has been light sprayed with non stick cooking spray. In a separate bowl combine the barbecue sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, old bay seasoning, and liquid smoke. Pour over the pork. Cook on low for 5 hours.

      Hi Tambi, That is funny you would ask. We went the easy route on the side dishes with this pork roast recipe. I bought some baby red potatoes and quartered them. Then I put them in a Ziploc Zip n Steam bag (find it on the tin foil and plastic wrap aisle) with a little olive oil drizzled in the bag and I sprinkled some rosemary in the bag. Then you microwave it for about 6 minutes. The carrots are frozen carrots that you can steam cook in your microwave! So easy and very delicious sides. Hope this helps. Now you know my secret! :)

    Foodlovers like me find this site a real relief. I prefer buying rare and seasonable vegetables available in the market and search for the recipes made out of it. Recently I made Parsely and bulgur and thought of making varieties out of it..Oh yes..I got a new salad type Levantine dish called Tabooleh made out of Onion, Parsely, Tomato, Mint, Bulgur garnished on Lemon juice..Awesome taste.The Master chef behind this secret recipe is clubnoor

    I made this and it turned out great! Thank you – highly recommend giving it a go.

    I used pork shoulder and did rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar (since that’s all that I had).
