Oh how we love crock-pot cooking! The perfect solution to those busy, my “to-do” list is too long, I’m losing my mind, how am I going to get everything done kind of days. Having dinner already started before we even get home not only saves our sanity, but it gives us back that much needed extra time to get to the gym.
Director of Personal Training Scott Martin and his family really enjoy this Crock Pot Balsamic Pork Roast recipe from the Skinny Taste blog. We hope you like it too! It’s gluten free, kid friendly, paleo, low carb, and downright delicious!
Crock Pot Balsamic Pork Roast
2 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast (sirloin roast)
kosher salt, to taste
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
⅓ cup chicken or vegetable broth
⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Season the pork with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes and place it into the slow cooker.
Mix together the broth, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce and pour it over the pork. Pour the honey over and set the timer for 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
Once the pork is cooked and tender (it should shred easily with a fork), transfer it carefully into a serving dish.
Break the pork apart gently with two forks and return it back to the slow cooker.
Ladle ½ cup sauce over the pork and keep warm until ready to eat.
