Delicious Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pork Roast Recipe Preps Quick

This roast is even more delicious served with a sweet and savory onion gravy.

There’s simply nothing better than coming home to the comforting aroma of a hot meal that’s been simmering for hours. That’s why our test kitchen manager pulled out a slow cooker and came up with this Brown Sugar Pork Roast recipe. We started by rubbing a mixture of brown sugar and mustard over the meat, then browns it to create a sweet-tart coating. Next we braised the roast in stock and onions. As the pork simmers, the juices combine with the cooking liquid to form a rich sauce infused with some of the mustard and sugar. When it’s done cooking, all that’s left to do is transfer the roast to a platter and serve it up with the flavorful gravy on the side. Talk about easy! Best of all, the recipe calls for only six ingredients and it preps in just 10 minutes. Just set-it-and-forget-it in the morning and let this succulent meal cook itself!
