Slow Cooker Sunday- Pork Roast in White Wine Sauce

Pork Roast in White Wine Sauce

I made this recipe during a week when I was doing some closet painting and organizing.  That left no time for cooking so this recipe was perfect.  I put everything into the crock pot and it cooked while I worked.

I served this with Amaranth which is an ancient grain.  I put 1 cup of amaranth in a sauce pan wit3 cups of beef broth and some spices. The amaranth has a very earthy flavor, which I was not in love with. Try it yourself and see what you think.
2 cups dry white wine
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 lb pork roast
salt and pepper
8 ounces of button mushrooms
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 of a large white onion chopped
2 tablespoons arrow root mixed in 2 tablespoons of water

Mix the wine, mustard, honey and lemon juice. Spray a crock pot with coconut oil. Add the wine mixture. Put the pork roast on top of the wine mixture.  Cook on low for 6 hours.

When the roast is almost finished, melt the butter in a skillet.  Add the mushrooms and onions. Cook until the mushrooms are soft.  Set aside.

Remove the pork roast to a platter. Pour the wine sauce into a saucepan.  Add the arrowroot mixture and cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens. Add the mushroom mixture.  Pour over the roast.

Serves 6
