Delicious and tender pork cooked in the slow cooker with a honey, lime, soy, garlic, and ginger infused marinade. We loved it so much we had it twice in one week!

One of my favorite things to cook in a slow cooker is pork. There is just nothing better than a pork roast that is slow cooking all day in a delicious marinade. The pork cooks to perfection and is just melt in your mouth tender.

I am always thinking of new flavors and ways to cook the pork in the slow cooker. You can never go wrong with a honey, soy, garlic, and ginger infused marinade. But I love adding lime to the marinade to give it that added tangy flavor. Plus the acididy helps to keep the pork tender as it cooks.

One extra step that I always do before adding the pork to the slow cooker is to pan sear the outside. This only takes a few extra minutes and the result is amazing. It gives the edge a pan seared crust that seals in the flavor and gives the outside a delicious crisp edge.

The pork slow cooks in this delicious and tangy marinade all day and the result is to die for. We loved every single thing about it from the amazing marinade to the pan seared and perfectly tender pork. In fact, we loved it SO much that we had it twice in one week!

If you are looking for a delicious and flavorful meal for your family you are going to love this one. It is quick and easy to throw into the slow cooker and the result is absolutely fantastic! This is one meal that you will want to make again and again!

  1. I left it for 6 hours on high in the slow cooker and forgot to check fr the last 1.5 hour and the liquid had turned black and caramalised… would you recommend just stopping it sooner?

    1. Yes, I would recommend cooking it on low for that long or high for half the time. Hope that helps! Thanks for asking! XOXO

  2. I made this in my Instant Pot (65 min for 2.7lb pork loin). It is AMAZING!! I don’t usually “follow” recipes, like to add my own touch, but this one I did and also took your advice about the Cilantro Lime Rice. Heaven!! Will definitely be making both again! Following you now 🙂 keep those amazing recipes coming!

  3. I don’t think I’ll ever make a pork loin another way. It was divine. I served it with savory applesauce and glazed carrots.

  4. Oh and I also added a bit of chicken stock in the bottom of a crockpot because I was afraid of the bottom burning but it still turned out yummy. I just had to bump up the cornstarch a little.

  5. This was a bit too sweet for me so next time I might add more garlic or some sort of spice but other wise this was delicious. Though with my crockpot, I had it on low for only four hours and it was already beyond 145 degrees. So I would suggest to everybody to check theirs after a couple hours of cooking

  6. I’ve made this a couple of times and it’s great! In response to sides…I serve it with pineapple fried rice!

    1. I am so glad that you enjoyed this! Thank you so much for sharing! I love pineapple fried rice! That sounds delicious! XOXO

  7. We put the marinade on after the pork was done cooking without the cornstarch. It was fantastic mixed with rice, corn, lettuce, feta cheese, and tortilla chips!

  8. This recipe looks fantastic. I was wondering if you have ever cooked it in the oven? I am planning on doing this and was thinking the usual…350 degrees….thoughts?
