Makes 8 servings.
Slow crockery cooking makes this roast especially tender -- and means a hearty dinner will be waiting when you come home after a busy day.



    · 1  2½-pound to 3-pound pork sirloin roast 
    · 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed 
    · 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    · 1/2 teaspoon pepper 
    · Nonstick spray coating
    · 2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges 
    · 1 teaspoon finely shredded Florida Orange Peel (set aside)
    · 1¼ cups Florida Orange Juice 
    · 1 tablespoon sugar
    · 1 tablespoon Florida Grapefruit Juice 
    · 1 tablespoon steak sauce
    · 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce 
    · 3 tablespoons cornstarch
    · Hot cooked noodles (optional)


Trim fat from pork.  If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3½- to 4-quart crockery cooker.  In a small bowl combine oregano, ginger, and pepper.  Rub spice mixture over entire surface of meat.

Spray a large unheated, nonstick skillet with nonstick coating.  Preheat over medium heat. Add roast and brown on all sides.  Transfer meat to the crockery cooker; add onions.  In a bowl combine 1 cup of the orange juice (chill remaining orange juice), the sugar, grapefruit juice, steak sauce, and soy sauce.  Pour over meat in the crockery cooker.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.  Transfer roast to a serving platter; keep warm.

For sauce, measure pan juices into a glass measure.  Skim off fat. Add additional orange juice, if necessary, to make 2-1/4 cups. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch, remaining 1/4 cup orange juice, and the reserved orange peel; stir in reserved pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Pass sauce with meat.  If desired, serve with noodles.
