This Slow Cooker Garlic Balsamic Pork Roast is an easy crock pot recipe that is loaded with flavor.
Hello It Is A Keeper readers! Since having my baby I’ve been relying even more heavily on my slow cooker. It’s been my saving grace to get food on the table. And I’ve been trying to make dishes that can be easily made into several different recipes. It’s the most efficient time saver to cook once and have 2 or 3 different meals you can then eat. That’s one reason why I love my Slow Cooker Dr Pepper BBQ Sandwich recipe because the leftovers are so tasty as Baked Chimichangas.
That was my goal with this recipe. I wanted a pork recipe that was flavorful enough to eat on its own but would also taste just as good when made into a few other dishes. The first night we paired it with Basmati rice and sauteed green beans. It was such a nice and simple meal. Another night I tossed some of the leftover pork with some BBQ sauce and served it on top of buns. For another meal you could saute up some peppers and onions, toss it with the pork and serve it atop mashed potatoes.
I like to use pork shoulder roasts in the slow cooker because it doesn’t get tough which can happen with other cuts of meat. Shoulder roasts are perfect for recipes like this, the Dr Pepper pork, and Kalua Pork or Cafe Rio style Sweet and Spicy Pork. I pick up the large packages of shoulder roasts from Costco where they are always a good price and cut them in half. I can get several meals from just half of the roast packages from there.
