Honey-Garlic Pork Loin

The classic “chicken with 40 cloves” gets a major overhaul in this incredibly easy and tender pork loin roast meal. The mild flavor of pork makes it a great stand in for the usual chicken. The slightly sweet and tangy garlic sauce pairs perfectly with the pork loin for an easy slow-cooker weeknight dinner.

Instructions

Sear pork in oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat until browned on all sides, 6–8 minutes; transfer to a 6-qt. slow cooker.

Add garlic to pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until browned, 5 minutes. Add onions and cook until softened, 3 minutes. Sprinkle flour over garlic and onions and cook 2 minutes.

Deglaze pan with broth, scraping up any brown bits. Stir in lemon juice, and Italian seasoning, season with salt and pepper, then bring to a boil. Pour broth mixture, then honey over pork. Cover slow cooker and cook pork until tender on high setting, 3 hours, or low setting, 6 hours.

Transfer pork to a platter and let rest 5 minutes. Pour cooking liquid into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer sauce until thickened, 2–3 minutes. Lightly mash garlic cloves, slice pork, and serve with sauce.
