Slow Cooked Brown Sugar and Maple Pork Roast

by Laura

Today’s recipe is the lastest dish I am in LOVE with. Really, I do occasionally “fall in love” with a dish.  First thing that got me was this is made in the slow cooker. An absolute love of mine to begin with! So it was off to a good start. Then you get the pork roast along with the other yummy ingredients. I mean brown sugar and maple syrup. how could you loose?

It makes this deliciously moist, tender, and flavorful roast with a savory sauce to drizzle over the top of the tender pork. It is absolutely divine! This is a new favorite Sunday dinner dish at our house. It is perfect to serve when you have company too! Tomorrow, I will share the side dish I made to accompany this (in the picture). It is an easy and tasty side!

I made this yesterday and unfortunately, we did not enjoy it. I wonder if 4 tbs of Dijon mustard was too much? It almost tasted bitter….
