I made a few alterations to make this recipe to make it suitable for our needs.
- I made sure to use GF Soy Sauce.
- I used rice vinegar instead of the cider or white vinegar.
- I used arrowroot starch instead of cornstarch.
- NOTE: When my pork was finished cooking, it didn't fall apart. My meat was tender, but I ended up cubing mine.
So where as I wouldn't give it the 4 1/2 stars that it received on Allrecipes.com .
I would give it about a 3 1/2 to 4. I'm keeping the recipe, because of it's convenience and the fact that all my kids will eat it. A rarity in my house!
|1.||Cut roast in half; place in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. In a bowl, combine the water, soy sauce, sesame seeds, molasses, vinegar, onions, garlic powder and cayenne. Pour half over the roast. Cover the pork and remaining marinade; refrigerate overnight. Drain pork, discarding marinade. Place roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker; add the reserved marinade. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce temperature to low; cook 8-9 hours longer or until meat is tender. Remove the roast and keep warm. In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir in cooking juices. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Serve with the roast.|
