I love making pork in the slow cooker. I served this with Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes but this would also be great with Roasted Parmesan Green Beans.

Whenever I happen to see a small pork roast in the supermarket, I always pick one up because I know it’s an easy dinner. I usually find myself gravitating to the Slow Cooker Kalua Pork each and every time because it’s so good and easy to make, but I wanted to switch things up and came across a slow cooker recipe for this balsamic pork recipe on Add A Pinch.

I met Robin just a few months ago while I was in Oregon so I was happy to try one of her recipes. This was so easy to make, and although my husband generally isn’t much of a balsamic fan, my toddler and I thought it was great! This recipe is slightly modified from her original but for the most part I followed it pretty close.

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!

  1. This is delicious and I make it often. Could I substitute maple syrup for the honey? How much should I use? Thanks!

  2. The cooking time is supposedly six hours and five minutes, but the recipe says 4 hours on high!?!? Which is it?!?!!

  3. Made this for dinner earlier this week in the crockpot, then used leftovers as a soup base for later in the week. Family loved both. It will be served again.

  4. I’m a bit confused: “Ladle 1/2 cup sauce over the pork”. What sauce?

  5. Will CENTER LOIN OR RIBEYE PORK work for this ? Or BUTT? My grocery doesn’t have the cut Listed on recipe 

  6. What could I substitute the honey with that would be keto friendly? 

  7. I tried this recipe today in my crockpot.  Everyone at the table loved it.  Will definitely be making again.

  8. Has anyone tried this with an instant pot?

  9. Rarely do I ever make the same recipe twice but I’ve made this several times! It’s so delicious. One of my absolute favorites. Thank you for sharing it! 

  10. I’m trying this with a smokey honey. I hope the flavors play well together!

  11. What cookbook is this recipe in, if any? My granddaughter is asking for a cookbook for Christmas and we love this recipe. I would like to give her one of your cookbooks with delicious but easy and healthy recipes.

    Thank You,
    Donna

  12. This recipe is really good. I wasn’t sure about it when I looked at the ingredients because I don’t use balsamic vinegar very much, but I’m so glad I decided give it a try. I used a 2 pound boneless pork loin roast since that’s what I had in the freezer.

    The only thing I would do differently is to increase gravy ingredients, then thicken with a flour-water slurry. Especially if I wanted to serve the meat over rice, noodles, etc.

    With the cooler weather pork will be on sale so I will stock up on roasts.

  13. Tasted great! Will make again and it was super easy to make.

  14. This sounds great I’m going to try this tonight
    I’m wondering tho if I could add veggies to the crock pot with it?
    Some potatoes celery onion and carrots?
    I hope it still comes out tasting fantastic

  15. Saw a couple questions about cooking this in an IP. I just tried it and it was perfect. I used a pork tenderloin (1.5lbs)  instead of a roast. Put it on the trivet and double the broth and put 1/4 cup of balsamic. Seasoned per recipe and threw some carrots in there. Hit the Meat/Stew setting and 35 mins later it was done. 

  16. I make this a couple of times a month. Great leftovers for sandwiches, soups, and nachos!

    One of my favorite recipes.

    Love it!

  17. Can the Balsamic Pork Roast be made in the Instant Pot?
    Would I keep the liquid the same.? Would High Pressure for 30 minutes be enough?

  18. The flavor of this was ok. But, It needed something more for my family. The gravy was thin and clear which made it no gravy at all. The meat was amazingly tender but blah. For me, it needed a strong side dish to complete the meal. Peolp were not full when dinner was finished.

  19. Has anyone made this recipe in an electric roaster? I am making a large pork roast so it won’t fit in my crock pot. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
