Slow-Cooker Pork Roast in Onion Gravy

Author: Canadian Living

Our readers just love their slow-cookers. Tender pork simmered in a rich onion gravy is a perfect match for mashed potatoes any night. You can substitute a boneless pork loin roast if you like; just reduce the cooking time to five hours.

  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 bone-in rib-end pork loin roast (about 4 lb/1.8 kg)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Onion Gravy:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 onion sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 cup white wine

  • 2 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

Method

Stick cloves into pork; sprinkle with pepper.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork on all sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; pour off fat in pan.

Onion Gravy: Add oil to pan; sauté onions and cumin seeds until golden, 8 minutes. Scrape into slow cooker.

Add pork and any accumulated juices, wine, broth, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves and salt to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until pork is tender, about 6 hours.
