How To Make Tasty Crock Pot Pork Roast

Let’s debunk the misconception that pork is unhealthy. Did you know that most cuts of pork, including pork shoulder, contain higher amounts of unsaturated fats (both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats) compared to saturated fats? This flavorful and nutritionally well-rounded dinner proves just that. Here’s how to make it:

  1. Make the dry rub: Mix the dried herbs and spices in a small bowl. Pat this mixture onto all sides of the boneless pork roast.
  2. Sear the pork: Cook the pork in a hot skillet on the stovetop for 2 minutes on each side to seal in the moisture and add flavor.
  3. Start the gravy: Add chicken broth, white wine, garlic, and mustard to the skillet, using the bits left behind from searing to enhance the gravy’s flavor.
  4. Layer ingredients in the crockpot: Arrange diced onions at the bottom of the slow cooker, followed by the seared pork roast. Pour the liquid over the pork, and add the vegetables around it. You can also add a bundle of fresh thyme and rosemary for extra flavor.
  5. Cover and slow cook: Simply cover the slow cooker, set it to cook on the low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours, and let it work its magic.
  6. Finish the gravy: When the pork and vegetables are tender, transfer some of the cooking liquid to a saucepan on the stovetop. Add a mixture of cornstarch and water to thicken it into a mouthwatering gravy. Serve the gravy over the tender pork roast and vegetables.

How To Store Leftover Crock Pot Pork Roast

This mouthwatering crockpot pork roast is perfect for meal prepping lunches or freezing for easy meals later on. Here’s how you can store it:

  • Cooked and cooled pork and vegetables: Store them in a large airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheat as needed. Store the cooked gravy in a separate airtight container and reheat it on the stovetop.
  • Individual portions: Store leftovers in glass containers for convenient grab-and-go lunches. To freeze, store the cooked pork and gravy (without the vegetables) together in a freezer-safe container or heavy-duty bag for up to 3 months.

How To Serve This Easy Crock Pot Pork Roast

This crockpot pork roast is a complete meal on its own, with cooked veggies and a flavorful gravy sauce. However, you can also pair it with a salad or slaw.

You can slightly smash the cooked potatoes and serve the pork, carrots, and gravy over them. The pork is also perfect for stuffing into taco shells or serving over fresh salad greens.
