Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pork Roast Recipe:

Have I ever mentioned that Megan and I grew up on a hog farm? Yep, our Dad raised pigs for most of his life which means we ate a lot of pork. To this day, I prefer pork over beef. And in all honesty, my kids do too.

Every year, I split a half of a hog with one of my sisters. We get it butchered, and then we fill our deep freezers with ham steaks, bacon, pork sausage, pork steaks, pork chops and pork roasts.

This is the reason I’m always on the lookout for a new pork recipe such as this honey mustard pork loin roast. I found a similar recipe for Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin (oven version) in my North Carolina Elks Cook Book and modified it to fit my needs.

The result is a perfectly tender crock pot pork roast with a tasty and satisfying honey mustard glaze.  You don’t necessarily have to go the extra step to make this honey mustard gravy, but I highly recommend it. It takes this recipe to a whole new level.

What cut of meat is a pork roast?

A pork roast is typically a pork loin roast. Sometimes, it comes with a bone still intact, but most often it is boneless.  Pork Loin Roast is another name for Pork Roast.

This is not to be confused with a Pork Shoulder (also known as a Pork Butt). These are two entirely different cuts of meat.

What’s the best cooking method for pork roast?

In my humble opinion, the slow cooker works best for a pork roast. Since this cut of meat is from the loin of a pig, there isn’t a ton of fat. Low and slow results in a tender dinner. Do not overcook or it can get dry.

Can I substitute a pork roast for a beef roast in recipes?

Yes, you absolutely can. This is a great way to introduce some variety in your favorite recipes.

Notes About Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pork Roast:

  • The Honey Mustard Gravy is completely optional, but highly recommended. If you’re short on time, omit the gravy steps. Instead, shred the pork and pour the cooking liquids over top before serving.
  • I recommend using Dijon mustard, but in a bind stone-ground or yellow mustard works too.
  • Do not overcook your honey mustard glazed pork roast.  There’s nothing worse than tough pork.
  • Pork roasts are also called pork loin roasts.
