Slow Cooker Island Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Island Pork Roast

Introduction

I got this recipe from theotherwhitemeat.com when I was looking for something different to cook. It's great served with rice. I got this recipe from theotherwhitemeat.com when I was looking for something different to cook. It's great served with rice.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 1/2 to 3 pound boneless pork loin roast
    4 whole cloves
    1/2 to 1 whole orange, cut into 8 wedges
    1 8-oz. can crushed pineapple, packed in its own juice
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Place pork roast and cloves in slow cooker. Arrange orange wedges around pork. (If cooking in 4 to 5 hours, use the whole orange. If cooking in 8 hours, use only half of the orange.) In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; pour over pork.

Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours (or low for 8 hours) the internal temperature on a thermometer should reach 160 degrees F. If desired, juices may be thickened by mixing together 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water, then stirring it into the pineapple mixture during the last 30 minutes.

Remove orange peel.

    Wow! This was delicious! I will definitely make it again. My husband really loved it and my daughter, who's not a big meat eater, ate 2 helpings. I think next time I'll double the pineapple, but it is wonderful as is. - 3/11/11

    Delicious and easy. Had friends over and they loved it. cooked some shallots with it to serve over with rice. Made the house smell wonderful for hours. - 1/2/10

  • Calories look high because if you are dividing 3 lbs of pork roast into 6 servings, 1/2 pound of meat a piece! So do a makeover and get the portion size about 3-4 oz of meat/serving. Mine is in the slow cooker now! (Made mine with actual cloves- good with pork.) - 3/14/13

  • Wasn't a big fan. Mushy & irregular taste. Since it was so tender we were able to bbq sauce on it and still enjoy it though. - 2/28/13
