3Spray the slow cooker dish lightly with olive oil spray, place pork in & cook on LOW for 7.5hrs.


5When the 7.5 hrs is up pull pork out & place in a tray, oil andsalt& place into a preheated oven (As high as it goes) or under a grill for 10-12 mins, keep a very close eye on it as it can burn very quickly!

You could definitely strain out any solids of there is any 🙂

Probably sounds silly but how do you strain the pan juice to get out any impurities. Is that like the fatty layer in the juices?

I didn’t believe that adding no ingredients to the pork would be ok. But you guys know best! Thanks

Crackle turned out terrible worst ever 🙁 meat was ok little dry. But crackle just wouldn’t crackle and was very rubber like and goozy.

Yum! My favourite way to cook a roast pork!

That’s right
It will make heaps of it’s own liquid during cooking 🙂

Is there no liquid except the oil in this as I’ve not used a slow cooker before

I’ve noticed this recipe doesn’t mention scoring the skin at any point in time unlike a traditional oven roast??

my roast is only 714kg in my 5L cooker, how many hours would it need? Thank you 🙂

Do you cut the rind off and put just that in the oven after the 7.5 hours?

You can also do them in the slow cooker along with the roast this way

I presume the vegetables were roasted separately in the oven?

I’d recommend taking the rind off, it worked well but couldn’t get it all so had to do it eventually. I added some lemon juice to the gravy as I felt if needed that acidic taste. Soo yum I’ve got left over for pork and gravy rolls 🙂

Just wondering…. Should the time be halfed for 1kg pork? And should the string be on or off?

Once the pork was cooked I cut the fat off rubbed in some oil and salt and placed it into a very hot oven to crisp up the crackle. I left the pork meat in the sc on low until the crackle was done. This was the first roast I had ever done in the sc and it worked beautifully. Will make it again this way 🙂

Can’t go wrong with this recipe if you follow the very simple instructions. It’s so easy. Every one loved it!

The first time I made this I put just the crackle in the hot oven and it was awesome. The second time I put the whole roast in the oven and the meat went dry. This time I’m laying the pork in the slow cooker on a bed of sliced onion and 2 cooking apples and at the end of the cooking time I will just put the crackle in the hot oven and leave the meat in the slow cooker on keep warm.

Pork turned out awesome, crackle failed oven for 20 minutes then took crackle off & oven for another 20 minutes , still no good 🙁

What a shame :/ It’s a much loved recipe to many
Better luck next time 🙂

The crackle did not work for me! I followed the instructions to a T!
Very disappointed!
My pork was left dry as I was trying to get it to crackle in the oven.

omg yummmmmm!!!
no tea towl just the lid Emma 🙂

This was the first non-casserole/stew type
dish I tried in my slow cooker and wow an absolute perfect roast pork.

Delicious and so simple!


April 14, 2016

Was awesome! Crisped it up in the oven at the end and no complaints in our household. The crackle was brilliant.

This recipe resulted in my first successful pork crackling. I’ve tried to experiment with other recipes and methods since and this was by far the best.

I can’t wait to try this. Im surprised the salt isnt added until it’s ready to be crisped. Usually we salt ( ALOT ) and rub the skin before cooking. I’ll let you know how I go.

I wouldn’t recommend the oven bag 🙂
Try it without that for starters


April 10, 2016

I cooked mine in an oven bag, and the rind went like jelly there was no way this would crisp up… Next time I will just put roast in slow cooker…. Thanks…

For a first-timer, I think this is the best way to cook Roast Pork.
And now I’ve cooked it a number of times… I still think this is the best way to cook Roast Pork
Simple, Easy, Tasty

Belly pork is the best -no left overs -easy to cook -leave it on all day -come home Put under grilled serve with salad -a real winner
