Ever since I met her, Julie and I have been sharing recipes and our love of all things food. These Fabulous Slow Cooker Pork Roast or Chops are another one of her recipes. It has been in my rotation for years now. The results are so tender and tasty. Every time. I love the gravy on mashed potatoes or rice. This recipe is a definite keeper.
This recipe for Fabulous Slow Cooker Pork Roast or Chops can be easily cut in half for a small roast or 2-3 pork chops. Just remember to reduce your cooking time! Both will turn out beautifully!
I have to tell you that I prefer using pork chops in this recipe. I love the flavor on and in every piece of pork, if you know what I mean. With roasts, the outside has a beautiful flavor and I find it necessary to coat each slice in the gravy. Maybe it is me but I love this flavor combination that much!
You have the option to thicken the gravy but I generally don’t bother. I just give the liquids a little stir and then scoop some on top! If you prefer a thicker gravy I have included instructions below. The decision is up to you!
Take a peek at our video below!
Julie's Fabulous Slow Cooker Pork Roast or Chops
- 4-6 pork chops loin or center cut, boneor boneless, 1 inch thick
- 2 cups tomato or tomato based pasta sauce -
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tblsp garlic, minced
- 2 tblsp ground mustard -
- 2 tblsp grainy mustard -
- 2 tblsp dijon or yellow mustard -
Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray.
Place pork chops or roast inside. of your slow cooker.
In a medium sized bowl combine tomato sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar with a whisk. Add garlic and both of the mustards. Continue to whisk until blended together.
Pour mixture over top of your pork chops or pork roast. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, on high for 3-4 or until meat is cooked. Remove pork chops or roast from slow cooker and dip or paint on some juices on top if desired. I love putting a scoop of juices on my mashed potatoes or rice too! Serve and enjoy!
For a Thicker Gravy
If you prefer a thicker gravy just put your slow cooker on high or pour the juices into a pot on your stove top. Boil the mixture and in a small bowl combine 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch with enough water to make a smooth paste. Add to boiling liquids and stir until blended. I would allow mixture to boil for about 10 minutes, if not a little longer. It is up to you. Both are delicious.
