A boneless pork shoulder is cooked in the slow cooker with sliced onions and a delicious blend of curry powder and other spices. Serve this flavorful slow cooked pork with mashed potatoes and your favorite side vegetable.

What You'll Need

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder roast, about 4 to 5 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons galic powder
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced

How to Make It

  1. You can leave the netting on the roast or take it off and tie with twine. Video: How to Tie a Roast
  2. Combine the soy sauce, garlic powder, curry powder, ginger, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Rub the roast all over with the spice mixture.
  3. Put 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet and cook the onions over medium-high heat until lightly browned and softened. Remove and set aside. Sear the roast in the pan on all sides, about 7 to 10 minutes in all. Put the pork roast in a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker along with the onions. Cover and cook on LOW for about 8 hours, until very tender.
