Slow Cooker Balsamic Pork

This wasn’t a bad crock pot recipe, and is worth trying again.  It originally came from Skinnytaste, and needed some extra seasoning.  But through no fault of the recipe, I managed to grab the wrong kind of roast by accident.  So it was a lot saucier/more watery than originally intended.  If I hadn’t been so lazy, I probably would have bothered to thicken the sauce, but it was fine as is.  Definitely has potential with more seasoning – I think some veggies in with the roast would be great as well.  We served this with steamed asparagus.

  • 2 pound boneless pork shoulder roast (sirloin roast)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Season the pork with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes and place it into the slow cooker. Mix together the broth and vinegar and pour it over the pork, then pour the honey over and set the timer for 4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low.

Once the pork is cooked and tender (it should shred easily with a fork), remove from slow cooker with tongs into a serving dish. Break apart lightly with two forks and put back into the slow cooker and ladle 1/2 cup sauce over the pork and keep warm until ready to eat.
