I love throwing a handful of ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, knowing that while I work all day, a tender, juicy, and flavorful dinner is making itself! The flavors of this pork roast are pretty hard to beat, which means that you’ll want to buy a really big roast so you’ll have leftovers. Coconut vinegar is a fairly new ingredient on store shelves, but if you can find it or order it, I recommend it, because it’s fantastic! If not, don’t worry; simply substitute raw apple cider vinegar.
