Raspberry Watermelon Pork Roast

Total experiment! I had a ton of watermelon and some raspberries... We like a sweet pork so I decided to throw things together and see what happened.....and it turned out fantastic!!!! I am going to shred up the remainder of the pork and add some of the watermelon sauce and try it cold in a sandwich tomorrow!

2 cups diced watermelon
3/4 cup raspberries
1-2 tsp pepper flakes
juice of 1/2 lime
pinch of salt

1 pork loin roast(approx 2 lbs)

Place raspberries, watermelon and lime juice in a food processor and process until smooth.

Add in pepper flakes and salt and process again.

Cut some shallow slices in your pork roast.
Place in slow cooker and top with watermelon sauce.

Cook on low 6-8 hours until internal temp reaches 165.

Remove roast and keep warm

Dissolve 2 TB cornstarch in 3 TB cold water and add to remaining juices. Turn cooker to high and cook uncovered 10-15 minutes until thickened.

Slice pork and top with sauce.

This does not need to be done in a slow cooker.You can put the roast in a roasting pan, top with the sauce and cover and cook in a 350 degree oven for 60-75 minutes until the internal temp reaches 165.
Then remove the roast add the cornstarch mix right to the roaster and heat until thickened.
