As you may know by now, I adore my slow cooker. It helps keep my meals & budget on track even when I’m feeling lazy. When it comes to pork and the slow cooker, my thoughts automatically turn to BBQ, but I wanted something a little different this time around. So I found this recipe and adapted it to what I had on hand. [That’s usually the name of the game in my kitchen; use what you have to make a delicious meal!]
As with most of my other recipes, this is very simple and easy but packs a punch when it comes to delicious flavor!
- 3-4 lb pork roast
- 1 c chicken broth
- 1/2 c balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
First, place your pork roast into your crock pot (slow cooker).
Add the garlic, salt, & red pepper flakes to your roast. The red pepper flakes add some heat & flavor, so use as much or as little as you want!
Next mix together the balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, & chicken broth. Pour over the roast.
Now drizzle the honey over the roast. The honey adds just a little sweetness to mingle with the acidity of the balsamic vinegar. Yummy!
Cook on low for approximately 8 hours or until pork is cooked through and easy to pull apart (or fall apart)!
For this recipe, I pulled the roast apart with forks and served with green beans and potatoes. It could also be used for a sandwich or served with some rice and broccoli.
