How do you cook a pork roast in a slow cooker?
Let the crock pot do all the work and come home to an amazing meal ready and waiting. Once I discovered how delicious a pork roast is in the slow cooker, I rarely bake one in the oven these days.
Each bite just so flavorful and oh my that gravy! This meal simply cannot be beat.
We love to make Pork Roast in crock pot with potatoes.
Toss in a few potatoes and you have everything you need for the perfect meal. We love doing this when we have little time to prepare anything else.
Everyone enjoys it and the potatoes get the best flavor from simmering with the pork roast and gravy.
If we have a few extra minutes, this meal is amazing with mashed potatoes. The recipe already has carrots and they have the best flavor from cooking with the pork roast.
Sometimes, for a change we leave out the carrots and cook them separately. We love Sweet Glazed Carrots in the crockpot with brown sugar.
Oh and bread is a must! We make these Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls and dip them into the gravy. Yum!
Can I put a frozen pork roast in the crockpot?
Yes, you absolutely can. Just adjust the time accordingly for the frozen meat.
