Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons white wine
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons less sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 (4 - 5 lb.) boneless pork loin, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 (10 ounce) jar apricot preserves
Instructions
  1. Season pork liberally on all sides with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Brown the loin on both sides. Transfer the loin to the slow cooker.
  3. In a large measuring cup, whisk together garlic, ¼ cup white wine, ½ cup soy sauce, mustard, thyme and ginger. Pour over the pork in the slow cooker.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
  5. When the roast is done, transfer to a cutting board and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Allow the meat to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. While the meat rests, prepare the Apricot Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine preserves, 2 tablespoons of white wine and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Heat until bubbly hot.
  7. Slice or shred the roast and serve with warm Apricot Sauce.

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure that you season the pork with plenty of salt and pepper. This is a large piece of meat, so it needs lots of flavor!
  • Don't want to use apricot preserves? Try substituting with peach preserves or orange marmalade.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley for a bright burst of flavor and color!
  • For an alcohol-free recipe, substitute an equal amount of chicken broth for the white wine.
