  1. Mix pork rub seasoning and Chinese five-spice powder together in a small bowl. Rub all over pork roast.
  2. Place sweet potatoes into the bottom of a slow cooker; add brown sugar and butter. Place roast on top and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook on Low until roast is fork-tender, 6 to 7 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Do not add any water to the slow cooker.
  • If pork doesn't seem quite done after 7 hours, turn cooker on High for about 45 minutes longer.

This was delicious and SO easy. I added a Vidalia sweet onion and wish I would have had more of the sweet potatoes. The pork was moist and tender and even my little kids ate it! Definitely will ...

No changes and will make again

Was super easy and super good

Loved it. Will make again.

Delicious! will use more sweet potatoes and cut them larger so they don't get so mushy. Used leftover pork to make pulled pork sandwiches.

It was delicious, my family loved it. Yummy enough to serve to dinner guests
