2 pound boneless butt pork roast, visible fat trimmed
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce/ Tamari
1/4 cup hoisin sauce (see comments below)
3 tbsp tomato paste
4 tbsp honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled & grated
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder
1/2 cup chicken broth/ stock
Very Easy How To:
Place pork in slow cooker and cover with the rest of the ingredients above. Cook on the lowest setting for 8-10 hours, turning once during cooking. Serve.
This recipe is extremely easy and results in a deliciously flavored pork roast. Be careful with the settings on the slow cooker as we had an issue with the sauce burning (heat was way too high) the first time we made this. I would suggest cooking longer at the lowest setting possible for best results.
Also, I would highly suggest making your own hoisin sauce if possible because the only ones I could find in the grocery store had sugar as the first or second ingredient! You can try the following mixed together (4 T low-sodium soy sauce, 2 T no-sugar peanut butter or black bean/miso paste, 1 T honey or molasses, 2 T white vinegar, 1/8 t garlic powder, 2 t sesame oil, 20 drops chinese hot sauce, jalepeno or habanero, and 1/8 t black pepper) to make half a cup.
We served this with the Almond Flour & Chedder Muffins and a salad and it was so delicious.
