Dr. Pepper Crockpot Pork Roast

I tried a great new recipe and thought I would share since I know many love Dr. pepper as much as I do.

4 lbs. loin of pork
1 cup Dr. Pepper (I used diet)
1/2 cup orange marmalade (I used the low sugar)
1/4 cup soy sauce (Again I used low sodium)
2 tablespoons ginger (I used powder but think if you buy the fresh it would kick this up a notch)

The directions called to cook it in the oven at 325 degrees for 2 hours but I didn't want to heat up our house so I chose to do it in the crockpot. After mixing the Dr. Pepper, orange marmalade, soy sauce and ginger, I poured over the pork in the crockpot. Since my crockpot is new I cooked it on low for 4 hours. The pork was tender and really good.

For those of you that don't love sweet, this may not be the recipe for you although I think if you added some horseradish for heat this would taste really good and counteract some of the sweet. I am also thinking next time of adding garlic and onion for some additional flavoring. I would think this would work with pork chops and chicken as well. Also I should note that my husband is not a big fan of Dr. Pepper so I didn't tell him that this had Dr. Pepper in it till after dinner. He was suprised as he coudn't taste it.

We served our roast with roasted zuchini and yellow squash "fries". You cut them in long skinny sections to look like fries and toss with olive oil and flavor as desired. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Make sure to flip the fries 1/2 way through.

Besides eating yummy food, I have been busy studying. I really am trying to stay on top of all the studying so that I don't get behind. My teachers expect 3 to 4 hours of studying for each hour you spend in class. So that means I have to do about 15 hours of studying a week. I don't mind but it does leave me very little time to do stuff to blog about.


  1. I'll have to give it a try. I cooked a pork roast the other night for my kids complete with red potatoes and sauerkraut (and of course lots of garlic). Yummy yummy

  2. This looks really yummy! I love crockpot recipes. I'll have to try it. Thanks, Debbie.

  3. Makes me wonder if you could use the grape jelly instead of orange and use bottle of chili sauce instead of soy sauce, and keeping the rest of the ingredients the same???? I might give that a try!!! I do love grape jelly/chili sauce combo with those crockpot meatballs!!!!
