Wild Game Recipe: Slow Cooker Pork Roast w/Red Wine

by Tammy Taylor

Being the wife of a talented hunter husband, I’m often cooking wild game here on the ranch.  I like to make pulled pork BBQ and I often do, but sometimes I like to make pork roast for a more formal meal.

When my talented hunter-husband 'brings home the bacon', I pull out the slow cooker and make a delicious pork roast with red wine broth. #TaylorMadeHomestead

My slow cooker is my best friend and whenever possible it’s the preferred method of cooking my roasts.  My recipe is easy (and included below)  I simply place pork roast in a slow cooker with about 2 cups of chopped or sliced onions (I like the red ones).  I pour about 2/3 cup red wine and 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce over the top, then turn the roast a couple of times to fully coat the meat.  I crush about 3-4 garlic cloves over the pork and sprinkle everything pretty liberally with cracked pepper. I cover the crockpot and cook on the low setting until a meat thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 145 degrees (about 4 hours)

The cooking liquid that remains in the slow cooker when cooking is complete is absolutely fantastic.  I usually ladle it liberally over the sliced meat and then serve a little more on the side with the meal.  The red wine really adds a depth to the broth that I enjoy.

And as promised, here is the recipe:

Slow Cooker Pork Roast

  • 2-pound pork roast
  • 2 cups sliced or chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, crushed (about 3 tablespoons minced garlic)
  • black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place roast in a slow cooker with onions. Pour wine and Worcestershire sauce over top, turning roast to coat. Spread garlic over the pork and sprinkle with pepper. Cover and cook on low setting until meat thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 145 degrees (about 4 hours)  Pork may be slightly pink in the center.
  2. Ladle cooking liquid over pork and serve extra juice on the side.

Enjoy!

    I love using my slow cooker as much as I can. And how fortunate you have a hunter husband to bring roasts home for you. Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I look forward to seeing you next week.

    I use the snow cooker for my roasts too so tender! This sound great, I haven’t done pork before I will have to try

      Me too Mel, and with the lean meat of wild pork the slow cooker keeps it moist & tender. ~TMR~

    I’m so happy I found this on Thriving Thursdays! My husband brings home wild hog, deer, dove, turkeys etc. (even bullfrog) so I am always cooking wild game. The hog is the most challenging though, so I am going to try this recipe next time.

      Steph, we love wild pork served this way. We have success with sows of any size & the younger boars, but boars over about 100 lbs tend to get gamey so we shy away from them. Give it a try – it’s delicious! ~TMR~

    Very interesting! I’m sure my dad would love this recipe. Even though he is not a hunter anymore, he still gets his supply of game meat when is the right season. Thank you so much for sharing at the Fluster Buster party! Have a fantastic week. P.S…Slow Cookers are Our BFF for real! lol Lizy party co host

      Lizy, the recipe will work with any pork roast, but it’s especially good (in my opinion) with wild pork. And yes you’re right, slow cookers really ARE our BFF! LOL ~TMR~

      Keeping the house cool is a big consideration here too. In the summer I’ll place my crockpot on a table on the back porch. Thanks for the invite. ~TMR~
