I love being able to throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot, let it cook and have dinner ready; especially if I know the afternoon is going to be a bit crazy. This meal is versatile and you can make it the way you want it. It makes a lot, so that is always a plus.
Crock Pot Pork Roast
This recipe is free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish
1 boneless pork loin roast 4-5 lbs, cut off any excess fat. I use Pork Tenderloin. I look for it on sale at $1.99 a lb and stock up. I cut it into portions that I cook with and freeze it.
montreal steak seasoning (or other seasoning your family likes)
6-8 garlic cloves, pressed
1 large onion cut into chunks or thick slices
2 lb bag of baby carrots
8 red potatoes cut into chunks OR make garlic mashed potatoes to serve on the side
15 oz of broth (any kind)
*if cooking potatoes in the roast, it tastes great served over rice.
*If not cooking potatoes in the roast, serve garlic mashed potatoes on the side (recipe linked above).
Rub roast with garlic. Season with montreal steak seasoning. Put 1/2 of carrots & potatoes (sprinkled w/ montreal steak seasoning) in bottom of crock pot. Top with roast, then the remaining carrots, potatoes, and onions. Pour broth carefully onto side of crock pot as to not wash off the seasonings. Cook on low for 8 hours or high 4-5. (If not making potatoes with the roast, then make mashed potatoes to accompany)
Spiced Apples are perfect with this dinner!
