Soy Ginger Pork Roast (Crock Pot/Slow Cooker)

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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!]
  2. Place roast in crock pot or slow cooker.
  3. 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.
  4. Pour over the roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
  6. Slice or shred, and serve with the sauce ladled over the top.  We enjoyed this with brown rice and roasted vegetables.
