This recipe was so easy to throw in the crockpot and it came out delicious. The hardest part for me is that I'm not a wine drinker, so I did have to send my husband to the liquor store for a bottle of red wine.
That being said, I've tried other recipes that called for red wine and don't tend to care for the flavor. The wine on this roast did not over power the meat. We used a Cabernet Sauvignon and it worked perfectly.
Cut excess fat from the pork loin if necessary. Use a meat tenderizer on the roast. Rub with ground black pepper. Place the pork in your slow cooker.
In a small bowl, combine the dry onion soup mix, water, red wine and soy sauce. Mix well. Pour half of the liquid over the roast. Turn the roast over and pour the other half of the liquid over the top.
Dice the cloves of garlic. Lay the chopped garlic on top of the roast.
Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours. Turn once half way through the cooking time and baste the roast with the liquid. When pork reaches a temperature of 145 degrees, remove from the slow cooker.
To serve, slice the roast and pour some au jus over the top.
