Preparation Time10 min

Slow Cooker Time LOW8 hr


  • 3 1/2 pounds boneless blade pork roast
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice, OR cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

This recipe came up under pork-tenderloin search. This may be a dumb question, can I alter some way to use tenderloin slices, unevenly cut? Butcher ruined by messing up cutting and they won't cook evenly in oven, so I need to do crock pot. Thank you.

Do you use the wet or dry mustard in your dish? I love the simple mix of ingredients. They are powerful and flavorful giving your pork dish a robust taste. I use the same ingredients you do in all my pork dishes, but I use garlic to give it a little more pep.

Hi SissieSass, I'd say that this recipe uses wet (or prepared mustard). - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes
