Y’all should know by now that I love a good slow cooker meal! I can get my boys off to school in the morning and toss something in. When I’m up to my ears in work I can come into the kitchen, set the table and serve dinner without any other prep and then return to what I was doing. This pork roast recipe is one of my favorites because it takes a matter of minutes to prep and throw the ingredients in but the flavor it has is beyond delicious. The smell that fills the house makes my mouth water all day long. Then when my husband gets home and asks what that amazing smell is and what are we having for dinner – the smell that doesn’t let you down once you take your first bite – that my friends is a GOOD dinner. If I am feeling motivated I even make gravy from the drippings that takes the whole meal to another level of ohmygoodness. I had plans to be all motivated when I made this for dinner last night but then I had a horrible, terrible no good day. Yes anything that could go wrong just seemed to GO wrong! At least at the end of the day the one good thing I can say is that dinner was ready. If I hadn’t have put it in the slow cooker I would have declared it a no-cook night for myself. Since we have a tight budget right now that wouldn’t have worked in my favor either.
Slow Cooker Pork Roast Recipe
- 4-6 pound boneless pork roast
- 1 onion – cut into wedges
- 4-5 carrots
- 8-10 red potatoes cut into halves
- 1 packet brown gravy mix, (found in the gravy isle)
- 1 packet Italian seasoning mix, (found in the salad dressing isle)
- 1/2 cup water
- Layer the carrots, onions and potatoes on the bottom of the slow cooker and set the meat on top of them.
- In a small bowl whisk together the gravy mix, Italian seasoning and water then pour around on top of the meat and vegetables.
- Place the slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours and when you come back dinner is done!
Gravy Recipe: Once the roast is finished use the drippings in the bottom of the slow cooker and place 1-2 cups into a sauce pan. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of flour over medium high heat and continue to whisk until the gravy thickens. Test it and add salt and pepper if needed.
