In my little family of 5, we all have opinions about food. Who doesn’t? My middle child, the younger boy, usually has the opinion that
anything I make for dinner is disgusting and inedible most of my cooking sucks is not to his liking. Imagine my delight when he had seconds and thirds of this. BONUS: the other two kids ate it too (the verdict is still out on the painfully picky other adult opinion of my husband, as he’s working late). SECOND BONUS: only a few ingredients, and easy to throw in the crockpot/slow cooker.
- 2.5-3 pound boneless pork loin roast
- 1 TB olive oil
- 1/3 c reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 c beef or chicken broth
- 1/2 TB minced garlic
- 1 TB minced ginger
- 2 TB honey
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 TB sesame seeds
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Brown roast, turning to get all sides. [I like the flavor and texture browning ahead of time adds, but you can bet when pressed for time, I skip this step in other recipes, and would in this too. It would still be good!]
- Place roast in crock pot or slow cooker.
- Mix together the remainder of the ingredients other than sesame seeds and pour into the pan used to brown the roast. Bring to a boil, stirring and scraping up any bits of the roast left behind in the browning process.
- Pour over the roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
- Slice or shred, and serve with the sauce ladled over the top. We enjoyed this with brown rice and roasted vegetables.
