Serving Slow-Cooked Pork Roast without BBQ Sauce

Rosemary, onion, and garlic give the meat such a wonderful flavor you’ll be tempted to eat it without the barbecue sauce. So, please, be sure to try some that way!

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

 

Prepare your Ingredients

Using a mortar and pestle, crush the dried rosemary.

If using fresh garlic, mince 1 clove with a knife and cutting board. Set aside until ready to use. 

Measure out boiled water and add beef bouillon cube to it. Stir until dissolved.

I like using the beef bouillon cube to this dish as I think the the bouillon adds extra flavor to the dish. Alternately, you may use 1 cup of beef stock or beef broth.

Place Browned Pork Roast in a Large Slow Cooker

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sear the sirloin pork roast evenly on all sides for 4-6 minutes or until a golden brown crust forms. Transfer the browned pork roast to a large (at least 6 quart) crockpot placing the fat side up. 

Search your local grocery store for a 4-5 pound sirloin pork roast with bone-in that has a layer of thick fat on top. DO NOT trim this fat from the roast. Leave it on, as it will make the roast nice and juicy. Also, be sure to place the roast in your crock pot with the fat side up, so that those juices will stream down through the meat as it cooks. 

Pour the prepared beef broth over the roast. Sprinkle with the crushed rosemary, minced garlic, dried minced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours until the pork is tender and juicy and shreds easily.

Pork Roast Served with Sweet Baby Rays Barbecue Sauce

Save the juices and pour over the meat when serving or for storing any leftovers. Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce. We like Sweet Baby Rays Honey Barbecue.
