1/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 large)

3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine 3 tablespoons brown sugar, onion, and next 6 ingredients in a 3 1/2-quart electric slow cooker; stir well. Combine remaining tablespoon brown sugar, pepper, and salt; rub pork roast with sugar mixture. Cut pork roast into 4 large pieces; add to slow cooker, turning to coat with sauce.
