Pork Loin in Balsamic Vinegar and Honey, a slow cooker recipe

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We tend to cook several dishes on Sundays. This makes for an easier time with dinners throughout the week. This can be helpful as one is never able to predict the commute traffic and worse, my husband never knows where his starting point will be, in order to return home. One of the dishes we cooked this past Sunday was this....

Pork Loin in Balsamic Vinegar and Honey
adapted from:  Cafe Johnstonia
slow cooker

1 3-5 pound pork roast (we used loin) frozen is fine, you don't have to thaw
1 c balsamic vinegar
1/4 c honey
1 1/2 t sea salt
garlic salt
2 bay leaves
1 t thyme leaves - crushed
2 t rosemary leaves - crumbled

Stir together the vinegar and honey. Place pork roast in the bottom of the slow cooker pour vinegar mixture over. Sprinkle sea salt over the vinegar, avoiding the roast.

Season the roast with the garlic salt. Scatter the herbs over the top of the roast.

Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours.

Note:  when using a loin roast due to the lean nature of the meat, cook for the shorter time given. 

Remove roast to a platter, strain cooking liquid, simmer to reduce by about half. Serve as a sauce over potatoes or rice.

You may also cook the roast (not a pork loin, for this version) until fall-apart tender, remove roast and separate with two forks, without reducing the cooking liquid, simply strain and pour over the meat.

This roast gives off a robust, delicious aroma when cooking. We had an extra helper at the kitchen door, hoping for a little taste.....

  1. Yummy! I cook a lot of roasts in my crock pot, separate the meat into several meal sizes and freeze.. Makes great tacos, bbq pork sandwiches, bbq pork salads, etc. It's nice to have something ready to go when time is a factor.
