  1. I think you meant to cook it on high for 4 hours? Because I followed your direction and cooked it on low for 4 hours and my loin was still raw

    1. We’re so sorry you had this experience! The instructions are actually correct, and this recipe has been successfully tested by our test cooks. However, slow cookers can vary greatly in terms of temperature, so if you are using a slow cooker that tends to run on the cooler side, you might need to, as you said, cook the pork on a higher setting. For example, it is a known issue that the low slow cooker setting on the Instant Pot tends to cook at a lower temperature than the average slow cooker, while some Crock Pot brands tend to run at a much higher temperature on the same setting.
