Carmelized Pork Roast - Recipe

No, this is not a cloven hoof.  It's a 3 pound pork loin roast.

I made this for dinner last night. It was SO delicious! (in my humble opinion, of course). I got the recipe online, and oddly enough, I did not attribute it to anyone when I saved it as a file. Usually I do, and it's so much fun to use a recipe and think, 'Oh yeah, I got this from Mary (or Jean or Jenn or Lois, etc.) I'm so annoyed with myself for forgetting to put a name on this one. Whoever it was, thank you! And please be sure to speak up in a comment so I can rename the file.

Wherever I got the original recipe, I modified it  just a tad. It was fork tender and you can see by the photo how delicious and carmelized it was!

Pork Roast with Maple Syrup, Recipe:

3 Lb. Pork Loin 
1 onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T. Bragg's Liquid Aminos (You can use regular soy sauce if you want, but don't come cryin' to me if you get a headache ;-).  I seem to tolerate Bragg's okay if I don't use too much of it.)
3 T. maple syrup
3 T. olive oil
2 T. Dijon mustard

Place thawed Pork Loin into CrockPot. Sprinkle onion slices and minced garlic on top.
In a small bowl, whisk together the Bragg's, maple syrup, olive oil, and mustard.
Slowly pour this mixture over the pork loin, trying to completely cover it.

Put the lid on the CrockPot and turn it on LOW. Leave it alone for about 9 hours.
Remove pork loin from CrockPot and let sit 20 minutes before pulling the pork apart.
You may find it difficult to wait until dinner. I couldn't, and I don't regret it a bit!
This is SO GOOD and incredibly easy!

 Roasted Vegetables makes a good side. Find recipe HERE

This sounds delish, Judy! Am adding it to my Try-it list. Your birthday celebration must have been a lot of fun. Loved the Henry photos. Did you know that Henry is Max's middle name?

Looks so yummy!!

Eileen said...

That looks and sounds delicious.
I've recently started basting a roasting chicken with maple syrup and it's lovely. I will try out your recipe for pork loin, will have to use soy sauce as I've not heard of the liquid aminos here in the UK.

Ooooh - pork and maple syrup! What an inspired combination! And you can never go wrong with roasted vegetables; sometimes they're dinner alone, without anything else for an entree ....

George The Lad said...

I could smell that Pork from over the pond! Have to find out when Mom is next going shopping, I'll make sure she puts this on her list to get:)
Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

This sounds delicious, Judy! I do tend to love anything caramelized though!!!

Terri @ A Creative Princess said...

YUM!!! I've got a pork loin in the freezer, guess what's coming out for dinner this week!

MadSnapper said...

both look delicious to me. I had a crockpot for many years, but don't have one now. i thought about buying one but then realized if i did i would have to COOK which is what i try to stay away from. i raised my kids using a crock pot and a pressure cooker.

Heide at ApronHistory said...

Sounds like a delicious combination! Unfortunatly, we are out of maple syrup at the moment.....have to find out where to get some. I wonder how honey would work? Have a lot of that right now....

Parsley said...

McYUM! ;-)

Mary said...

I really like the looks of the roasted vegetables, too.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

My hubby would love this! I'll try it when the weather cools! Hugs!

Amy Burzese said...

That does look delishous. The veggies too.

Unknown said...

Oh my, that looks absolutely gorgeous....getting hungry just from looking at the pictures hehe.
Have a great day!

How utterly delightful! I'm trying to make use of our slow cooker. (I know; that's a bit strange for a Bear, but I'm a bit of a peculiar Bear.)

And Maple Syrup. From here across the pond? Marvellous Canadian touch. Brilliant.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

(If you wonder how I got here, it's all sandie's fault. Chatty Crones sometimes give away too much information.)

Candace said...

That looks soooooo good. I wish that I had seen this recipe earlier because I would be having that for dinner tonight instead of sitting here hungry not wanting to cook. I'll be making it soon enough though. Yum!
