Friday: Not Your Momma's Pork Roast

This Pork Roast is just the right amount of tender and tangy!

Arrange one sliced onion in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Add your Pork Roast.  Mine was 3.5 lbs.

In a bowl, mix together the following, then pour over your pork:

1.5 c. hot water
1/2 c. sugar
3 T. red wine vinegar
3 T. soy sauce
2. T. ketchup
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
couple dashes of hot pepper sauce

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or so.  Be sure that the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees. 

Move pork to a serving platter, strain the sauce into a gravy boat, and serve both atop wide egg noodles. 

Cost analysis?  The giant 3.5 lb roast will reappear later in the week as barbecue pork sandwiches, so that cuts the cost a bit.  Our meal consisted of the roast, egg noodles, green beans, and a dinner salad for a total of $10.22 or $2.04 per person.

How did it go over?  I've got four beautiful words for you:  Clean Plates All Around!
