Easy and delicious Crock Pot Pork Roast is a great weekday dinner. Put everything in the Crock Pot in the morning, and by evening dinner is served!
My awesome mother bought the husband and I a bunch of roasts, steaks, and hamburger for our Christmas present this year. You know you are getting old when that kind of thing really excites you. One of those slabs of meat was a nice plump pork loin. I have never cooked using a pork loin before so I was curious as to what I could make with it. Of course I consulted with Mom, since she always has answers.
She said to try cooking it like a roast in the crock pot. The words “Roast” and “Crock Pot” are always music to my ears. I love *anything* I can cook in my Crock Pot. So, that’s exactly what I did. I looked on All Recipes for one that looked like a winner, but I didn’t really find one I liked, or had all of the ingredients for. Instead, I combined a few and came up with the BEST Crock Pot pork roast I’ve ever had! Here is what I did…
I started with a 4 lb pork loin. I ended up cutting it in half–not exactly 2lbs and 2lbs, maybe more like 2 1/2 and 1 1/2—and used the bigger part as my pork roast. The other half I cut into thick chops for later. I plopped that baby in my Crock Pot and threw in some diced up onion and 2 cloves of garlic chopped up. Then I combined about 1/4 cup of Worcestershire Sauce, 2 tbsps of lemon juice, 2 tbsps of brown sugar and a dash of soy sauce. I also threw in some rosemary, thyme, oregano, and lots of pepper. After mixing all of that up I poured it over my roast. I let that sit for a minute then threw some carrots on top. There wasn’t enough liquid to cook the roast in so I added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth—you could use vegetable broth as well—and cooked it on low for about 6 hours.Even my husband, who is not a big pork roast fan, was impressed with this Crock Pot Pork Roast—of course if he hadn’t been he would have just thrown extra hot sauce on it and eaten it anyway–that’s what I love most about him 🙂 To go with the roast I whipped up some mashed potatoes and gravy. Yes, you read that right-homemade gravy!
