Shredded honey butter pork loin on bed of rice.

Honey Butter Pork Loin

Slow cooking on the weekends is one of my favorite things to do. It’s so easy and doesn’t require a ton of effort. This pork loin was delicious and can be made dairy-free with a vegan butter alternative. Serves 8.


Pork loin:
Olive oil
3½ lb pork loin

Spice Rub:
2 tsp JF Spicy Salt
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
¼ tsp aleppo pepper
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Honey Glaze:
1 stick unsalted butter, melted (sub vegan butter)
¾ cup honey
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1½ tsp JF Spicy Salt
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
¼ cup apple cider vinegar


Step 1: Coat the base of your slow cooker with olive oil and preheat it to a high temp on the ‘sear’ feature.

Step 2: Coat your pork loin in olive oil and sprinkle over an even layer of our spice rub. Lay this into the slow cooker and begin to brown all sides; you’re looking for a nice even char.

Step 3: In a small bowl combine your melted butter, honey, garlic, JF Spicy Salt, cracked black pepper, and apple cider vinegar to create our glaze.

Step 4: Set your slow cooker to ‘low’ and pour over the honey glaze. Cover and let this sit for 4-4.5 hours, until tender.

Step 5: Once time has elapsed, shred the entire pork loin with a fork and let it cool in the sauce that's formed at the bottom of your slow cooker. Season to taste.

Step 6: Enjoy this warm over rice, in tacos, with greens, or completely on its own.
