“If you are a pork roast enthusiast, this is definitely one to add to your collection. The pork is simmered in a tomato sauce, and served over hot rice or noodles. The recipe calls for beans, I did not use any since my kids don't like them.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine garlic, salt, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes in small bowl; rub over roast.
  2. Place half of onion slices into slow cooker. Cut roast in half to fit into slow cooker. Place one half of roast over onion slices; top with remaining onion slices and other half of roast. Pour pasta sauce over roast. Cover; cook on LOW 8 to 9 hours until roast is fork tender.
  3. Remove roast from cooking liquid; tent with foil. Let liquid in slow cooker stand 5 minutes to allow fat to rise. Skim off fat.
  4. Stir beans into liquid. Cover; cook on HIGH 10 to 15 minutes or until beans are hot. Cut pork. Serve with beans mixture and garnish wi fresh basil, if desired.
  5. I did not use the beans, so I used corn starch to thicken the liquid and spooned it over the rice and pork.
