What to Serve with Slow Cooker Garlic Butter Pork Roast?
It is important to note that this recipe is made with a pork loin, not pork tenderloin. They are two very different cuts of meat. Pork Loin can also be labeled Center Cut Pork Roast or Center Cut Rib Roast.
Should be done in 5 to 6 hours, but depending on your crock pot and the size of your pork loin, it may take up to 7 hours on LOW. To be sure it is done, use an instant read thermometer and insert it in the thickest portion. It should read 145F.
Let the roast rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
It’s fine to leave the pork in the crock pot on warm after it is done cooking if it is not yet dinnertime.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
