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

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