WOW, Watchin' What We Eat Wednesday, Slow Cooking Thursday, Tasty Thursday, Freezer Food Friday and Favorite Ingredient Friday are all bumping into each other this week. This is a relatively good for you, tasty slow cooker recipe that is great for the freezer and a favorite of the kids, especially when you put it on a roll like a sloppy Joe. This is another recipe that I like to make in large portions and then freeze in portions after the initial meal which is great for week nights. In this case I will freeze the remainder for the Christmas Holiday gang we'll have.
6 pounds boneless pork sirloin roast
1/2 pound bacon, cut into pieces
1 large sweet Vidalia onion, sliced into rings
1 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 cup apricot pineapple jam
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 teaspoon minced garlic, jar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- Cut the bacon into small pieces.
- Cut all large portions of fat off the roasts.
- Spray the crock pot with PURE and set for high.
- Place bacon on bottom with the roasts arranged over it.
- Slice onion into thin rings and layer over roasts.
- Whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, molasses and honey.
- Add the brown sugar until dissolved.
- Whisk in the seasonings, garlic and jam.
- Bring to a SLOW BOIL.
- Pour over meat and onions.
- Cook on high for 4-6 hours.
- Remove roast and shred meat. Return meat to slow cooker and cook another hour.
- For a more adult meal I thicken the gravy and serve it over mashed potatoes.
