There is nothing that I love better then a good crock pot meal. Crock pots come in handy so much when you have a child. I know mine has really been used much more since Xavier has been born. It is easy to throw something in it in the morning and have a nice dinner. This is a very simple pork pot roast recipe. You can use really any type of pork loin for it because it cooks so long even the not so great cut of meat ends up fabulous and falls off the bone. Definitely a nice winter treat.
Crock Pot Pork Pot Roast
- 4 lbs. loin end pork roast
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 clove of garlic slivered
- 2 medium onions, sliced
- 2 Bay leaves
- 1 tsp. sage
- 1 cup of hot water
- Make tiny slits in the meat and insert the slivers of garlic. Place meat in a broiler pan and broil on low for about 20 minutes or until browned, discard excess fat.
Put one sliced onion in bottom of the crock pot. Top with browned pork roast and sprinkle with salt, pepper and sage. Arrange remaining onion on roast with bay leaves and add water.
Cook on low in crock pot for 8-10 hours, or until tender. Carefully remove meat and slice, keep warm
You can discard the Bay leaves. The juices can be made into a nice gravy by thickening them on the stove top with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons of cold water, cook on high for about 20 minutes and whisk.
