Asian Inspired Pork Roast.

Asian Inspired Pork Roast is delicious and so easy to get seasoned and into the slow cooker for dinner. Serve with rice and your favorite vegetable for a dinner the family will love. 


I remember having pork chops for dinner when I was a kid, it seemed they took forever to cook! And there was always a lot of fat left in the pan. But today's modern raised pork is leaner than in previous years. Unfortunately, it can also be easy to overcook. Which to be honest with you is often what I do...Those memories from childhood are strong!


But I may have stumbled on a solution to avoid overcooking pork in the slow cooker. Today when I went to prepare this Asian Inspired Pork Roast it was still frozen. Because dinner needed to be made, I thought that to solve the issue of frozen meat, why not complete the recipe and start out on high heat for half the time, then turn it down to low for the finish. And so I did. 


Fortunately, I have made this roast before and it turned out great. So I had a fair idea of what I needed to see happening in the slow cooker so dinner would be put on the table, on time. And my idea was a total success! We had a lovely dinner of sliced Asian Inspired Pork Roast, Coconut Rice, and buttered peas for our dinner. I am pretty sure I will use this frozen roast trick again!


Some thoughts on this recipe:

To adapt this recipe for a frozen roast, season and sauce as directed. Cook on high for 2 hours and reduce to low for the remaining time needed. 

I did check for doneness before the time was up and I was glad I did. Because the roast was cooked in full. Further cooking would have dried it out. 

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • pork loin roast
  • granulated garlic
  • fresh ground pepper
  • catsup
  • honey
  • soy sauce
  • rosemary
You will also need the following:
  • slow cooker
  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • small bowl
  • whisk or spoon
Now we are ready to begin!



Asian Inspired Pork Roast
adapted from: Fix It and Forget It.

2 1/2-3 pound Pork Loin
granulated garlic powder
fresh ground pepper
1/4 c soy sauce
1/2 c catsup
1/4 c honey
1-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
OR 
1/4-1 t dried rosemary



Place the pork loin on a cutting board and using a sharp knife, score the fat in a diagonal pattern. 

Place the roast in the bottom of the slow cooker, and sprinkle liberally with granulated garlic and fresh ground pepper.

In a small bowl or 2 cup measuring cup stir together soy sauce, catsup, and honey. Pour over the pork loin roast.

If using fresh Rosemary sprigs, lay them over the top of the roast. For dried rosemary sprinkle over the top of the roast evenly.

Cook on low for three hours and test for doneness to avoid overcooking. The meat thermometer should register between 140-143 degrees. Continue cooking if necessary to reach 140-143 degrees.



Remove to a platter and cover, let rest 10 minutes. 

Strain pan drippings and serve with the roast.

Storage options for Asian Inspired Pork Roast. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. I would not recommend freezing leftover pork roast, as it may dry out the meat.

  1. I remember having pork chops as a kid. My mom would put BBQ sauce on them--Yum! We really didn't cook pork loins though. And now, my husband doesn't eat pork... This recipe sounds delicious.

  7. This looks great because it's different from the same old ways I usually cook pork. My husband and sons shot three hogs, so I'm having to gather all the pork roast recipes I can. Ha!
