Yes its beautifully cookin in the Slow Cooker?crock pot.i do mine in a oven bag and then half an hour before serving place the bag on a roasting dish split open and pop under the grill to crisp up the crackling.

Hi there, you can't really "roast" in a slow cooker. But try this recipe it sounds really nice. I have not tried it yet but will give it ago myself soon.

I did one yesterday, and put sliced lemons and onions in the bottom. and a little water. Put it under the grill, but for some reason it did not crackle.
Didn't worry as the pork was so tender, and didnt want a dentist visit. lol

I ended up doing the piece of pork in crockpot sitting on some shallots,kumara,yams,pumpkin,a-
nd 2 apples done in 1/4s,then i added a combination of keri apple juice and liquid vege stock,done it on auto/low for 14hrs,it was so tender,except the kumara was still quite firm for my liking even though i'd cut them down in size.

I find pork in the slow cooker is tacky.

I cooked Alison Holsts Pork Chops With Peaches slow cooker recipe for tea last nite. 8 hours on low but the pork ended up very dry. There was plenty of sauce, which was very tasty but unsure why it was so dry.

I struggle with pork chops, I’ve done them in marmalade, peaches, tomatoes, apples, all sorts of things hoping to crack ‘the way’. Tend to avoid them now, but if someone has a tried and true and willing to share I’d be grateful. Pork strips are my go to now, simply roasted, easy and delicious.

I just put it in the slow cooker( no liquid) on low for about 6 hours and then finish it under the grill. Delicious
