Today’s recipe is the lastest dish I am in LOVE with. Really, I do occasionally “fall in love” with a dish. First thing that got me was this is made in the slow cooker. An absolute love of mine to begin with! So it was off to a good start. Then you get the pork roast along with the other yummy ingredients. I mean brown sugar and maple syrup. how could you loose?
It makes this deliciously moist, tender, and flavorful roast with a savory sauce to drizzle over the top of the tender pork. It is absolutely divine! This is a new favorite Sunday dinner dish at our house. It is perfect to serve when you have company too! Tomorrow, I will share the side dish I made to accompany this (in the picture). It is an easy and tasty side!
