With the holidays so close, time is at a premium for most of us, with the parties and decorating and shopping and such. Here’s an easy and delicious pork roast to make in your slow cooker. I save even more time by making this in my Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System, especially since I don’t have to use a separate skillet to saute the onions and brown the meat. Don’t have a Ninja yet? Then add it to your Christmas gift list – you’ll be thrilled if one shows up under your tree!
This pork roast is tender, moist and flavorful. The vinegar makes it tangy and the hot sauce gives it a nice kick!
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large sweet onion, sliced
- 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped small
- 2 lb. boneless pork loin end roast
- Kosher salt to taste
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- 1 cup Barbecue Sauce (your choice)
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- Hot sauce to taste
Heat the olive oil in the Ninja using the “Stovetop High” setting. (If you are using a regular slow cooker, do the next two steps in a large skillet over medium heat, and then transfer the onions and meat to the slow cooker.)
Add the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes. Season the pork with the salt and pepper. Using a wooden spoon, move the onions and garlic to one side of the pot.
Put the roast in the pot and brown it on all sides. Redistribute the onions.
Mix together the barbecue sauce, vinegar and hot sauce and pour it over the roast and onions.
Turn the Ninja to “Slow Cook” mode, low temperature. Cook for about 2 hours – the internal temperature of the meat should reach at least 145 degrees.
Serve over buttered noodles or with hot mashed potatoes. This makes great leftovers.
Eat, drink and be merry!
