Talk about terrific flavor! This slow cooker pork recipe is just about as good as it gets. “Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast” features a great blend of flavors—just the right balance of sweet and savory ingredients. I served it over hot noodles as suggested and I’d have to say that it was perfection!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 1/2 to 3 lbs. boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Here’s what to do:

  • Arrange the onion slices evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker; then place the pork roast on top of the onion slices.
  • In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; then pour this mixture over the meat.
  • Cover and cook on the low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or cook on the high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Serve over hot noodles or potatoes.

By the way, I used the leftovers for pulled pork sandwiches. It was great!
