Here’s an easy dish to prepare, and the pomegranate really makes this dish kick.

The pomegranate sauce is enhanced by the sugars and the honey and they produce a perfect compliment to the pork.

And, did I say that it was easy… just set it and forget it.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Slow Cooker Heaven: Pomegranate Pork Roast

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Add the pomegranate juice to a small saucepan.
  4. Chef's Note: Simmer until reduced by half, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Chef’s Note: The saucepan that I am using is called a “reduction pan.” The sides of a reduction pan slope outward, like an inverted pyramid, and this helps in evaporation.
  6. While the pomegranate juice is reducing, coat the pork roast with the olive oil.
  7. Generously sprinkle salt and pepper over the roast.
  8. Place the roast in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  9. Brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side, and reserve.
  10. After the pomegranate juice has reduced, add the honey, lemon juice, zest, garlic, and brown sugar, to the saucepan.
  11. Stir to incorporate all the ingredients.
  12. Pour the pomegranate sauce into the slow cooker, and then add the pork roast.
  13. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours (you can’t burn it), until it is fork tender.
  14. PLATE/PRESENT
  15. Remove roast from slow cooker and allow the roast to rest for 10 minutes.
  16. Slice into generous slices, drizzle with the sauce, and serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy.
  17. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
