THICKNER FOR SAUCE IN CROCK POT:

- The side of the pork loin that has no fat, slice down the middle but do not cut through and through. Just make like a trough.
- Season all sides with salt, red/black pepper and garlic powder.
- In the slit, place the whole garlic cloves in a row.
- Top the garlic with the sliced onion and bell peppers.
- Take the bacon and start wrapping around the pork loin, pulling the cut together to hold in the garlic, etc. Secure with toothpicks.
- In a bowl, combine the “Chow-Chow” and the next 4 ingredients. Mix well.
- In a shallow glass dish, pour some of the marinade into the dish. Just enough to cover the bottom.
- Set the stuffed loin, cut side up into the dish.
- Pour remaining marinade over the loin. Cover with saran wrap and marinade overnight.
- On day of cooking, remove loin from refrigerator and drain off marinade. Discard marinade.
- Place an iron cast skillet over medium heat. When skillet is hot, sear both sides of loin until golden brown. Set aside.
- In a bowl, combine the soy sauce and the next 7 ingredients. Mix well.
- Place the loin into crock pot and pour the soy sauce mixture over the pork loin.
- Cook on HIGH 3-4 hours (depending on the size of your pork loin).
- Remove loin from crock pot and place on serving platter.
- In 1 c. of water, dissolve 3 T. cornstarch to make a slurry.
- In a saucepan, pour the juice from the Crock Pot and place over simmering heat.
- Gradually add the slurry to thicken the gravy.
- Slice the pork loin and drizzle some of the gravy and garnish with parsley or green onion.
- Serve extra gravy on the side.
*Just a note when you stuff with whole garlic, it will intensify the flavor. If you do not like your food spicy, cut back on the garlic cloves and chow-chow.
If you just want to make one sauce, either the marinade or the sauce you pour into crock pot, either will work. I just like the blend of the two flavors.
