past few years… I had taken a back seat to the Instant Pot for a while, but now it has gained first place in my affections again.
I love how easy it is to host a family meal together, with minimal fuss! Take this slow pot pork roast, for example.
It takes MAYBE 15 minutes to prepare and then most of the magic happens in the slow cooker. If you’re shy about cooking roast pork because it can end up dry and tasteless, then it’s time to HUG your cooking pot.
Which cut of pork is suitable for this recipe?
I used pork loin
here, and it is important to distinguish pork loin from loin. It’s not the same!
Pork loin is incredibly lean and best suited to quick cooking. Pork loin, on the other hand, needs a low, sluggish touch, which makes slow cooker the ideal way to prepare it.
I avoid using pork shoulder for this recipe: it is more suitable for making shredded pork and would be very difficult to cut as it tends to crumble.
How to make slow cooker pork
measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page. Please take a look at the steps and video before trying this recipe!
Combine the ingredients and press them into the pork loin, on both sides.
Heat the oil in a large skillet and the pork over high heat, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until it has a pleasant color. Burn the pork seals in the juices and add a lot of flavor, so don’t skip this step.
Add the vegetables and apple to the slow cooker. Top with sherry, broth and add pork. Cover and cook in the LOW setting for 6-8 hours, or the HIGH for 4-6.
Ideally, check that your joint is done with a digital thermometer. It must register 65C (more than 145F). The cooking time will depend a bit on the size of the pork loin (as you can see mine was large) so it is recommended to use a digital thermometer.
Transfer the pork to a dish and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Rest the joint while preparing the sauce.

Make the sauce
Strain the liquid from the slow cooker and discard the vegetables apart from the carrots
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour to make a roux. Cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes and gradually add the wine.
Add the reserved cooking juices, slowly, and simmer the sauce until it begins to reduce. Add the Worcestershire sauce and mustard and try – you may need to add salt and pepper.
Cut the pork and serve with the carrots, mashed or roasted potatoes and the sauce. So delicious!!
This slow-cooked pork roast is delicious served with roasted potatoes, braised red cabbage, or mashed potatoes.
A large pork loin can easily feed up to eight people, although I love having leftovers to use in other recipes.
STORAGE OF LEFTOVERS
Store leftover pork in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. You can use pork in sandwiches, stews, ragout sauce and stir-fries.
You can also freeze leftovers for up to three months, thawing in the fridge overnight before use.
