This easy crock pot teriyaki pork roast recipe is a winner, tender pork in a tasty apple, soy, ginger sauce.
3/4 cup apple juice (I used sparkling cider)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon garlic power
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 to 3 pound pork loin roast
3 tablespoons cold water
1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
In a 4-quart slow cooker, combine the apple juice, sugar, soy sauce,vinegar, ginger, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the roast and turn to coat with the apple juice mixture. Place fat side up. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 5 hours, or until meat registers 140-145 on an instant read thermometer when it's stuck into the center of the roast. (Mine was done after 3-1/2 hours, but all slow cookers are different.)
Remove the roast from the slow cooker and place in on a platter. Cover it with foil to keep warm. Strain the cooking liquids from the slow cooker into a small saucepan, skim fat if necessary. Bring to a boil.
Combine the water and cornstarch to make a paste.
Stir the cornstarch mixture into the boiling liquid. Cook, stirring, until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve sauce with sliced roast.
