This Crock Pot Pork Roast and Vegetables is a fix it and forget it meal that always turns out great. The pork roast is always tender and juicy, and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. I love my crock pot! It is so handy on busy days. I especially love the feeling I have all day that dinner is already done and I don’t have to give it a second thought for the rest of the day! The basic ingredients are listed in the recipe, but, you can get creative and try other kinds of vegetables. I’ve used this same recipe and added butternut squash, sweet potatoes, red potatoes, parsnips, mushrooms and celery. You can also get creative with the seasoning you use. This time I just used salt and pepper because the soup mixes add a lot of flavor and make a nice gravy that coats the meat and vegetables. I have used other spices and seasonings that have tasted just as good with the pork. One of my favorite seasonings to use when cooking a beef or pork roast is Montreal Steak Seasoning. I sprinkle it on the roast before adding the soup mixture. It has a nice blend of spices that goes well with beef and pork. My family loves to eat pork roast with cold, chunky applesauce or with our own chunky apple recipe we make in the crock pot… that recipe is coming soon!
