Slow Cooker Company Pork Roast

Okay, let’s talk about food made in a slow cooker…
It just doesn’t photograph well!

After simmering all day to the point where the meat just falls apart when you touch it, it is next to impossible to get a blog-worthy picture!

I have made this pork roast on three separate occasions, trying to get a better picture each time, but this is as good as it gets my friends. However, I knew that I had to share the recipe because it’s amazing!

So, just like you don’t judge a book by it’s cover, don’t judge this recipe by it’s picture. One bite and you will be so happy you gave it a try!

The name of this roast is because it is definitely company-worthy to serve to family or friends who come over . . . the smells that come from your slow cooker while this cooks all day are absolutely amazing!

  • 1 (3-4 lbs) pork loin roast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of roast and then brown all sides of the roast in the olive oil (I usually sear each side for 2-3 minutes). Place roast in slow cooker (also, scrape whatever is left in the skillet into the slow cooker - it adds good flavor!).
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together honey, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, dry mustard, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Pour over the top of the pork roast and cook on low for 5-7 hours (depending on the size of your roast).
  4. When finished cooking, remove roast from slow cooker and place on a serving place. Pour remaining liquid from slow cooker into a medium-sized saucepan and heat on stove over medium-high heat. Mix together cornstarch and cold water, then add to saucepan. Cook until sauce starts to thicken, then pour over the top of pork roast.

  1. I keep trying various recipes using the slow cooker, but the meat always comes out dry.... I am so excited to try your recipe, since I am obsessed with the idea of slow coking, however I'm afraid this would turn out dry too... Could you point to me what I may be doing wrong or if this is what slow-cooked food should be like..? I want that "meat falling apart" melt in your mouth kind of experience (and the thing is I'm an experienced cook, so I plan to keep on trying til I get that.... but some enlightment would help too). Thank you for your wonderful blog!!!! :)

    This was horrible. It was dry and salty. I didn't even add any salt because I was worried about the soy sauce, even though I used low sodium. It was the driest pork roast I have ever made and the sauce was awful. My husband choked on it, because it was so dry. I will use my made up pork roast recipe. Thankfully I didn't make it for company. How embarrassing would that have been. It was thrown away - total waste of money. I can't understand why anyone thought this was good.
    • I get that we all have different tastes and some of us are better cooks than others (I am no expert). But there is a way to leave negative feedback that is not quite so harsh. Remember, there are real people behind this blog (and my heart hurt for these ladies after reading your post, but by now I am sure they have had quite a few responses like yours.....). Even if it is not a great recipe, there is a way to say it without ripping someone apart. Please be aware of your digital footprint when leaving a critique and find a kind way to share your truth. For example: "not our favorite roast recipe. came out slightly dry and a little too salty for our tastes (even with low sodium soy sauce)." Comments like "horrible," "thankfully I didn't make it for company," and "total waste of money" are just abusive and so unnecessary. Just my opinion.
