Orange Herbed Pork Roast

1 2 1/2-pound to 3-pound pork sirloin roast
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Nonstick spray coating
2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (set aside)
1-1/4 cups orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon Florida Grapefruit Juice
1 tablespoon steak sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Hot cooked noodles (optional)


Trim fat from pork. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 31/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. In a small bowl combine oregano, ginger, and pepper. Rub spice mixture over entire surface of meat.

Spray a large unheated, nonstick skillet with nonstick coating. Preheat over medium heat. Add roast and brown on all sides. Transfer meat to the slow cooker; add onions. In a bowl combine 1 cup of the orange juice (chill remaining orange juice), the sugar, grapefruit juice, steak sauce, and soy sauce. Pour over meat in the slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat Setting for 4 to 5 hours. Transfer roast to a serving platter; keep warm. For sauce, measure pan juices into a glass measure. Skim off fat. Add additional orange juice, if necessary, to make 2-1/4 cups. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch, remaining 1/4 cup orange juice, and the reserved orange peel; stir in reserved pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Pass sauce with meat.

Makes 8 servings.
