Slow Cooker Citrus Pork

A nice citrus flavor for a summer afternoon. I got this from Taste of Home and modified it slightly.

2 lb pork roast
1 large grapefruit
1 medium orange
1 large lemon
1/3 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley (cilantro would also be a fantastic flavor!)
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium sweet onion

Juice the citrus fruits then slice the peels into strips and reserve for later.
Combine fruit juices, oil , garlic, parsley. Mix well and add salt and pepper to taste.
Cut several slits in the pork roast about 3/4 to 1 inch deep.
In a large re-sealable bag place the roast and cover
with marinade.

Allow to marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours minimum, or overnight if possible.

In the bottom of the slow cooker, place slices of the reserved peels and the onions.

Pour the entire contents of the bag over the peels and onions, adjust salt and pepper as desired, cook on low 6-8 hours until the roast reaches 145

Remove from cooker, cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
