Had my mouth set for a good pork roast and when I found this easy Slow Cooker recipe for Balsamic Pork Roast, I knew I had to try it. Plus, I had purchased some 18 year old balsamic and peach flavored balsamic at the Kentucky Incredible Food Show a couple of weeks back and I wanted to try that, too! It was melt-in-your- mouth DELICIOUS!!
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 (used half peach balsamic and half regular)
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.
COOK’S NOTE: I started my roast a little later in the day so I cooked mine on high for about 4 hours. Actually, I just shredded the roast right in the slow cooker (DO NOT OVERCOOK) and left it sitting in the cooking juices. YUM.. Looking foward to sandwiches and shredded pork tortillas rest of the week!
