  • 2 lbs pork roast
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pat the pork roast dry with paper towels. Season it generously with salt and pepper on all sides.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the sesame oil. Sear the pork roast on all sides until it is nicely browned. This should take about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the pork roast from the skillet and set it aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, gochujang, honey, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  4. Place the seared pork roast into the slow cooker. Pour the marinade over the pork roast, ensuring it is well-coated. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the pork is tender and easily shreddable.
  5. About 30 minutes before the pork is done, add the broccoli florets to the slow cooker. Stir to combine and ensure the broccoli is coated in the flavorful sauce.
  6. Once the pork and broccoli are cooked, transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Serve hot and enjoy the bold, Korean-inspired flavors!

This Korean-inspired slow cooker pork roast with broccoli is sure to impress with its rich, savory, and slightly spicy flavors. It's a dish that brings a touch of culinary adventure to your home kitchen. Enjoy!
