Pork loin is one of those meats that really needs some injections of flavor to really make it stand out. This Crock Pot Pork Roast is saucy and smokey and juicy…and with only 3 ingredients!
The 3 ingredients needed are:
- A Pork loin roast
- Sugar free BBQ sauce
Now please don’t yell at me for saying the BBQ sauce is only 1 ingredient. If you want to be technical, the bacon has more than one ingredient. I’m glad I could get that off my chest.
I have a delicious sugar free BBQ sauce recipe that I used for my Instant Pot Ribs. You can use that recipe to baste this pork roast, or you can buy your favorite sugar free BBQ sauce from the store. I recommend G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce. I have heard really good things about it!
The pork loin roast I bought for this recipe was 4.5 pounds. That’s a lot of meat for my little family so I chose to cut it in half and freeze the rest for a future recipe.
You will be amazed at how easy this recipe is! All you need to do is pull out your Crock Pot, put in your pork roast, pour on some BBQ sauce, lay the bacon on top, then more sauce!
I let my pork loin roast cook in the slow cooker for 4 hours. That’s how long it took to come to a safe temperature of 145F. I use a meat thermometer to let me know when my meat is ready. They are so worth the tiny investment!
After My pork roast was finished cooking, I pulled it out of the Crock Pot and put it onto a sheet pan. I’m not sure what trickery or witchcraft people are using to get crispy bacon in a slow cooker, but I think there is no way possible for this to happen.
I put more sauce on the pork roast and then I put it under the broiler to get the sauce caramelized.
The bacon will still not be crispy, but it will be delicious!
Slice that baby up and serve with some cauliflower mash and a salad. I am currently obsessed with arugula. I was always scared to try arugula because people always describe it as peppery. I associated that with bitter for some reason. I was so wrong! Arugula is amazing and you should definitely try it!
- 1 2.5 pound Pork Loin Roast
- 1.5 cups Sugar free BBQ sauce
- 5 slices Thick cut bacon
Place the pork loin in the slow cooker. pour half of the BBQ sauce on top. Lie the bacon slices on top, tucking the excess under if necessary. Pour more sauce on top of the bacon...enough to coat. Set the slow cooker on low and cook until the internal temperature of the pork id 145F. Mine took 4 hours
Remove the roast from the slow cooker and place on a baking sheet. Pre-heat the broiler. Pour a little more sauce on top of the roast and put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until the sauce starts to caramelize.
Slice and serve hot.
