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.

    Oh my this looks tasty. Wondering can you just pull the roast out and slice to serve instead of shredding? Also was wondering about using Pork Gravy mix (Like McCormick’s) instead of the plain cornstarch & water? Also, if I did that would I use the same amount of water or do you think make according to package directions? Thanks.

  2. What size crockpot for a 3 lb pork roast?
    I’ve learned from experience that that it definitely makes a difference.

  3. This recipe looks great! I wanted to help you edit it. When describing how to make the gravy, you mention adding cornstarch and water to the BEEF juice. It should be pork, I would guess. Just trying to help.

  4. 5 stars
    This was perfect! I added cut up potatoes so that I had even less work to do. ? My family loved it and we are adding it to our menu. ??

    We had this tonight. I added potatoes and carrots to the crockpot!! It was delicious!! Perfect for a work night dinner. When I came home the house smelled wonderful! It was so nice to have a complete meal already cooked after a long day at work. Thank you for the excellent recipe. I am going to make this regularly. After trying this one I am looking forward to making more of your recipes.

  6. I noticed beef juice in the gravy instructions. Hmmm… pork roast & chicken broth – Where’s the beef? 🙂
    I will use the pork juice…
    Everything is in the crock-pot and I am looking forward to the meal & leftovers. I appreciated the suggestion of left overs on egg noodles – sounds delish. I will be checking out your Eating on a Dime site, too. TTFN

  7. Thank you! I’ll update that as I did use the broth from the crock pot. I hope you enjoyed the recipe!
