Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast


This pork roast cooked in a crockpot is one of my husband's favorite slow cooker meals. I usually serve it with buttered egg noodles and sugar snap peas.

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
3 hrs
Total Time:
3 hrs 15 mins


  • 1 cup hot water

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 2 ½ pounds boneless pork loin roast


  1. Mix water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, pepper, salt, garlic powder, and hot sauce together in a bowl.

  2. Arrange onion slices evenly over the bottom of a slow cooker. Place roast on onions and pour sauce over top.

  3. Cover and cook until pork is slightly pink in the center, on Low for 6 to 8 hours or High for 3 to 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
