1 (2-pound) boneless center-cut pork loin roast, trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups chopped red bell pepper
6 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon lower-sodium soy sauce

2. Place pork, bell pepper, and green onion pieces in a 4-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray; stir well.

3. Combine hoisin sauce and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a small bowl; stir until well blended. Pour mixture over pork and vegetables; stir well.
