Slow Cooked Pork Loin Roast

This week’s post was going to be scallops and white wine cream sauce, but the end result didn’t look so good, even though it was incredibly tasty….so we will leave that one for another time. Today I pulled out the slow cooker and whipped up a really tasty pork roast. I made a rub and then seared the meat before placing it in the crock pot, finally topping with a balsamic vinegar and garlic mixture. Roast turned out flavourful and moist.

Served with fresh veggies and a side salad (with a cuke from the garden) this recipe made a great family dinner.
