Slow Cooker Asian Pork Roast Recipe

Slow Cooker Asian Pork Roast Recipe

 

I had some fruit trees come in on Friday, and I had to work over the weekend so I didn’t have the time to plant them until today. Seeing as this was stacking up to be a real busy day I decided to get out the slow cooker. This allowed me to get dinner on, and go about getting done, what I had to get done.

This Slow Cooker Asian Pork Roast Recipe is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of prep time. I was a little concerned about the ground cloves the recipe called for; because of not being sure how this spice would blend in with the rest of the ingredients. As usual the pork, because of being cooked in the slow cooker, was nice and tender, and it turned out that the ground cloves was a nice added touch. I decided to serve this recipe with Garlic Mashed Potatoes because of the delicious gravy that was created with the recipe, but if you want to keep to the Asian theme you may want to serve it over rice.

The next time you have a busy day coming up and you decide to use your slow cooker give this Slow Cooker Asian Pork Roast Recipe a try; it’s really good.
