Ingredients:

2.5lb-3lb pork loan

1 Tbl. Olive oil

2 Tbl. Black pepper

2 Tbl. Ground ginger

2 Tbl. Garlic powder

¾ cup of honey

½ cup of soy sauce

Juice from 2 limes

2 Tbl. Worchestershire Sauce

2 Tbl. Water

2 Tbl. – ½ cup of SH’ That’s Hot Angry Ginger (depending on desired spice level)

2 Tbl. Cornstarch

Chopped cilantro (optional)

 

Directions:

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. If you have a smaller, circular crock pot, cut pork loan in ½ so that it will be able to cover the bottom, leave whole with a larger oval slow cooker. Crust pork loin in black pepper, ground ginger, garlic powder and salt.  Lay the crusted pork in the hot oil and let the pork sear until the outside edge starts to blacken (do not pick it up or move it until the blackening occurs). Rotate and blacken all sides, including the top and bottom (using tongs), to keep in the moisture. Place the port on the bottom of the slow cooker. Combine ingredients starting with honey through Angry Ginger (do not includes cornstarch and cilantro) for the marinade. Shake and cover the pork with the marinade. Let cook 5-6 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high heat or until thermometer reads 160 degrees (check every 30min so that you don’t over-cook and dry out the pork … cooking temperatures vary by slow cooker).  Once finished, lay pork loan on a platter and slice. Pour juices from the slow cooker into a medium saucepan. Whisk cornstarch and water together. Add mixture to the sauce and cook over medium-high heat for a few minutes until the sauce thickens, ensuring there are no clumps of corn starch. Pour juices over pork and service with chopped cilantro (optional), and side dishes.
