Asian Slow Cooker Pork Roast
Asian Slow Cooker Pork Roast! Can you say Asian Slow Cooker Pork Roast is amazing?! My kids and husband loved this super easy dinner!
We love easy at our house and Costco. It’s actually a problem, the addiction is real. I love to buy meat at Costco because it’s fresh and cheaper.
Meaning we need to meal plan according to my meat purchases or else we have to freeze it! This recipe is one of our new favorites! Give it a try!
- 2-3 pound boneless New York pork roast
- 2 tablespoons Chinese five spice
- 2 tablespoons + 3/4 cup brown sugar divided
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons + 1/2 cup cold water divided
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Garnish: Cilantro
Place the pork roast in your slow cooker.
In a small bowl, whisk together the Chinese five spice, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
Rub the spice mixture all over the pork roast (including the bottom). Pour 1 cup of water around the side of the pork roast. Try not to pour it over top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. When there is about 20 minutes left on the cooking time, prepare your glaze.
In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of cold water until dissolved. Set aside.
To a large saucepan, add 1/2 cup of the remaining cold water, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper, and 3/4 cup brown sugar. Bring to a simmer and then stir in the cornstarch mixture. Continue to stir until the glaze has thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and discard the liquid. Shred the pork and then put in the pot with the glaze and serve over rice.
Serve the pork with chopped fresh cilantro.
