We woke up at 3:00 this morning, yes 3 a.m…. To travel back to North Carolina from Pennsylvania. The idea was to avoid traffic through Washington DC and northern Virginia. It worked and we got home around 9:00 AM. Bleary eyed and tired but not able to sleep due to drinking coffee to stay awake during our drive home.
I know we will crash later so a slow-cooker meal for dinner is definitely in order. But what to cook? I had a pork tender loin in the freezer and did a quick thaw and scoured the pantry to figure out what to add… I decided on a balsamic vinegar and honey sauce. If I don’t count the salt and pepper I used just 7 ingredients – pork tender loin roast, balsamic vinegar, vegetable broth, Worcestershire sauce, crushed red pepper, garlic powder and honey! I love recipes with just a few ingredients! I roasted some fresh vegetables and dinner was done!
It was delicious and there were plenty of leftovers for later in the week, prepped and ready to go! Shredded pork tacos are definitely on the list. If I add a healthy barbecue sauce, barbecue pork sliders will be oh so good! Give this a try and let us know what you think! If you are following the Portion Fix Meal Plan 1 red container of pork equals 1 red.
Slow-Cooker Honey Balsamic Pork Roast
This is a delicious slow cooker pork roast. Flavorful and requiring only 6 ingredients, most of which are probably in your pantry.
Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food!
