Hassle-free, delicious, and budget-friendly meal! I love this dish so much. It is my comfort food. Every time I eat this dish, I feel like everything is going to be okay! I usually serve this with potatoes, but steamed rice works perfectly well too! It is perfect to eat for lunch or dinner. The ingredients I have provided are pretty basic, so feel free to add your preferred ingredients. By the way, do not add water because you don’t want a saucy outcome. Enjoy!
1 tablespoon pork rub seasoning, or to taste
¼ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 (3 pounds) pork loin roast
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
½ cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Step 1: In a small mixing bowl, add the Chinese five-spice powder and pork rub seasoning. Stir until well mixed.
Step 2: Spread a generous amount of the seasoning mixture on both sides of the pork roast.
Step 3: Adda and arrange the potatoes on the bottom of the slow cooker.
Step 4: Top with brown sugar and butter.
Step 5: Place the seasoned meat on top of the potatoes and butter. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
Step 6: Cover with lid and cook for 6 to 7 hours on low heat or until the roast is tender. You can also check with a thermometer. It should read 63 degrees C.
Step 7: Remove from the heat.
Step 8: Serve with potatoes and sauce. Enjoy!
I don’t add water because the pork and potatoes already have natural liquid.
Adjust the heat to high if the roast is still not cooked after the given cooking time.
