Pork roast is one of those perfect slow cooker meals, and this Slow-Cooker Herbed Balsamic Pork Roast from Cafe Johnsonia caught my eye with the simple but perfect combination of flavors.   Lindsey says you can cook it all day on low, or use high for 4-6 hours.  When the meat is tender, reduce the flavorful sauce and pour it over the pork and dinner is served.

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Pork shoulder or loin roast
  • balsamic vinegar
  • honey
  • dried rosemary
  • fresh or dried thyme
  • bay leaves
  • sea salt
