Slow Cooker Orange Pork Roast Recipe
For this meal, I took an existing recipe I had for orange chicken and modified it a bit for a pork roast. It was absolutely delicious!
peanut or sesame oil
1 small pork roast, trimmed and cut into chunks
1/2 onion, chopped
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 T powdered mustard
1" fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water (optional)
hot cooked white rice
Heat a Dutch oven drizzled with a little oil over medium high heat. Brown pork well. Stir in onion and cook for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (except cornstarch slurry, rice and broccoli).
Add browned pork to slow cooker. Stir in orange sauce. Cook on high 3-4 hours, or low 6-7, or til pork is very tender.
If using cornstarch slurry, remove pork from slow cooker with a slotted spoon and set aside to keep warm. Whisk the cornstarch slurry into the slow cooker. Cook sauce til thickened. Stir pork back in to sauce and heat through.
I served the pork and sauce over the rice with a side of broccoli.
