This is another slow cooker recipe that I’m keeping in my back pocket. Easy to prepare, and comes out great always. Super savoury pork loin roast with sweet potatoes smothered in brown sugar and butter. Fix this in a snap and wait for a few hours. No need to spend forever in the kitchen anymore, just put everything in a slow cooker and leave.
1 tablespoon pork rub seasoning, or to taste
¼ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 (3 pounds) pork loin roast
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
½ cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
salt and ground black pepper to taste
HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER PORK LOIN ROAST WITH BROWN SUGAR AND SWEET POTATOES
Step 1: Combine the Chinese five-spice powder and pork rub seasoning in a small mixing bowl until incorporated.
Step 2: Generously rub both sides of the pork roast with the mixed seasonings.
Step 3: In the bottom of a slow cooker, arrange the potatoes and add in the butter and brown sugar.
Step 4: Over the potatoes, add the seasoned pork roast. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Cook on low for about 6 to 7 hours until the roast is tender or the thermometer in the centre registered 63 degrees C.
Step 6: When ready to serve, place the roast with potatoes and sauce on a clean serving plate. Enjoy!
1. No need to add in water as the potatoes and pork already have natural liquid.
2. If the roast is almost done, about 7 hours and 45 minutes after, adjust the setting to high.
