Savory Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Our family enjoys pork roast but I'm always left with the question of how best to prepare it.  We prefer slow cooking our roasts just because it ends up being so tender.  So I found a few different pork roast recipes and ideas for what to cook mine in all day.  This recipe definitely had the flavor I was looking for.  I made a gravy out of the juices with arrowroot powder and served it over potatoes.  That was delicious as well.  Then shredded it for leftovers and mixed in the leftover gravy to be served again over potatoes or eaten plain.  Either way I hope you enjoy the recipe!  We enjoy leftovers so I always make a lot of the meat, but you can certainly cut this recipe in half.  We also use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, but if you prefer to use soy sauce you can substitute it.

This is a paleo & clean eating option.

Savory Slow Cooker Pork Roast

4-5 pounds pork loin roast (I used 2 2-pound roasts)
1 whole onion cut into large chunks
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup coconut aminos
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
3 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup

Place pork roast and onion in a 4-5 quart crock pot and sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder and salt and pepper.  In a small bowl or 2 cup glass measuring jar add coconut aminos, balsamic vinegar, mustard and maple syrup. Whisk well to combine then pour over top of roast.  Cook on low for 6-8  hours or high for 4-5 hours.  I did turn my roasts over halfway through cooking.
