What You'll Need

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1  (3 1/2-4 1/2 lbs) boneless pork shoulder  (or pork sirloin roast)
  • 4-6 carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf marjoram  (or thyme)
  • 2 cups unsweetened apple juice (or cider)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cold water

How to Make It

  1. Cut the onions in half and cut off the end; remove the peels. Slice the onion halves and arrange them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Leave netting on pork roast and place it atop the onion slices in the slow cooker.
  3. Slice the carrots into 1-inch pieces.
  4. Arrange carrots around the roast; sprinkle the roast with the garlic, salt, pepper, allspice, chili powder, and marjoram or thyme. Combine the juice and vinegar and pour over the roast.
  1. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Reduce heat to LOW and cook for 6 to 8 hours longer, or leave on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours longer.
  2. Pour juices into a saucepan and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Reduce to medium and continue boiling for 5 minutes.
  3. Combine flour and cold water until smooth; whisk into the simmering juices. Continue cooking and stirring until thickened. Serve with the pork.
