Ask your supermarket butcher to tie the pork loin roast for easy handling.

Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 3 hrs 30 mins

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (about 3 pounds), tied
  • 1 10 ounce jar  duck sauce or hoisin sauce (about 3/4 cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chili paste
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  1. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray and add the pork roast. In a small bowl, combine the duck sauce, garlic, ginger, chili paste, rice wine, soy sauce and sesame oil. Whisk in the cornstarch. Pour the sauce over the pork.
  2. Cover the slow cooker and cook the roast until fork-tender and an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees , 3 1/2 hours on high heat or 8 hours on low heat. Transfer the pork to a platter, cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes. Pour the cooking liquid into a bowl and let stand for 10 minutes, then skim any fat from the surface.
  3. Slice the pork and arrange on a platter. Sprinkle the scallions and cilantro on top. Serve the Asian sauce on the side.
