Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

This pork roast turned out very flavorful, and perfect for a day when you don't feel like spending a lot of time getting dinner ready.  I actually forgot to take a picture of the roast when it was finished because we were all so hungry, but you need to try this recipe!  Enjoy!

1 large onion, sliced
2.5 lb boneless pork roast (I used a 3 lb)
1 cup hot water
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar (I used balsamic)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste

Arrange onion slices evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker, and then place the roast on top of the onions.  In a bowl, mix together water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and hot sauce.  Pour over roast.  I also added baby carrots and diced red potatoes.  Cover, and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.
