Crockpot Pork Roast has been calling my name for MONTHS!!! I’ve been meaning to buy a roast at the store and never really got around to it.

Recently on my trip to the grocery store I decided I had to grab a roast even if I wasn’t going to make it that same week.  The following week I let the roast defrost and made it for dinner.  S-O G-O-O-D!!!

I basically just took ideas from a bunch of recipes I saw, including the back of the Onion Mix box (forgot which brand it was).  I’ve seen VARIOUS variations of how to make crockpot pork roast and hope to try something new next time- but this was SO good and is a very simple, easy recipe.


Pork Roast
(For a smaller sized roast)

1 Packet of Onion Mix
1/2 Cup of Water
Your Favorite Seasoning (I used Adobo, what’s new!)
2 Carrots, cut into slices (You can use more if you’d like, we’re just not big carrot people)
3 Large Potatoes, cut into medium cubes (Again, use more or less according to your tastes)
1 Large Scallion, cut into small pieces

Mix the packet of onion mix with the 1/2 cup of water
In the bottom of the crockpot place the cut veggies and potatoes
Cut the pork roast in half, season, and lay on top of the veggies/potatoes
Pour over the onion/water mix over the veggies
Cover the crockpot and set on low for 8 hours…

Next? Come home to a SCRUMPCIOUS smelling house and a DELCIOUS, soft, tender, and juicy dinner.
