Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lb boneless Boston butt pork roast
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 can (20-oz) crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp grated orange zest
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
3 tbsp sugar (same amount of Splenda Granulated may be substituted)
2 tbsp cornstarch

Combine the soy sauce, liquid smoke, pineapple, orange and lemon juices, orange and lemon zest, and sugar in a medium saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat; add cornstarch, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened.

Place the roast in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Pour half the above mixture over the roast; reserve remaining mixture. 

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours. 

Warm the remaining sauce mixture and serve over the pork.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
