Crock Pot Pork Roast
This Crock Pot Pork Roast and Vegetables is a fix it and forget it meal that always turns out great. You can rely on tender, juicy pork roast, and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. I love my crock pot! It is so handy on busy days. You can relax the rest of the day because dinner is done. What a great feeling! Plus, there is nothing quite as comforting as your family walking into a home filled with the aroma of a home-cooked meal.
Go ahead, get creative
If you’re looking to mix things up with this classic meal, go ahead and get creative with spices and veggies. I’ve used this same recipe and added butternut squash, sweet potatoes, red potatoes, parsnips, mushrooms and celery. You can also mix things up with the kinds of 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. Sprinkle some on the roast before adding the soup mixture because 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.
Pick the perfect pork
When it comes to finding the best pork roast, not all cuts of meat are created equal. When it comes to crock pot recipes, you want to get that tender, savory, slow-roasted taste, which means you need a cut of meat that has enough fat to bring out all the right flavors. Your best option is from the belly. Pork belly is high in fat, making it a versatile and delicious cut of meat. If you’re worried, you can skim away some of the fat, but leave enough for flavor.
