Slow Cooker Pork Loin

I used a 2lb pork loin and started by layering the bottom of my crock pot with onions. In a small bowl mix: 1 cup hot water, 2 TB brown sugar, 3 TB rice vinegar, 2 TB soy sauce, 1 TB ketchup, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, hot sauce to taste. Mix well and pour over the top of the pork loin. Cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
For the bean salad: saute 1 tsp on olive oil with 1/4 cup chopped onions, add in 1 can cannellini beans, and 1/2 can of stewed tomatoes. Add 1 tsp oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Cook over low heat for 10 -15 minutes.
