With warmer weather just around the corner (I'm trying to will this to happen) I can begin to feel the pull toward meals that can be shared with family and friends. Growing up, Pork Roast seemed to make it's appearance on Sunday afternoons when the weather was beginning to get warm and all we wanted to do after church was play outside. It was a perfectly rounded meal for the family to share that ended in a one-dish clean-up, which had us back outside enjoying each other quickly. Classic meals like this that can be shared with family and friends just make me smile. I hope you enjoy!
- 3 to 4 Lb. Pork Roast
- 5 Carrots
- 5 Red Potatoes
- 1 Medium Sweet Onion
- 1 Can Meat Mixers American Pot Roast
- 4 Tbl. Bacon Grease, or Vegetable Oil
- Salt, Pepper, Minced Garlic
- Add 4 TBl. of bacon grease or oil to a skillet on medium high heat. Cut Roast into quarters and season with salt and pepper then brown for 4 minutes on each side in skillet. Set aside.
2. Wash, peel, and cut potatoes, carrots and onion. Place in bowl and toss with 2 Tbl. minced garlic, salt and pepper. Then transfer half of the vegetable mix to the bottom of the crock pot. Set remaining potion aside.
3. Add seared meat quarters to crock pot, then top with remaining vegetables. The last step is to pour one jar of Meat Mixers American Pot roast over the ingredients. Side Note: This is my first time to use this at home. I'm a very traditional seasoning gal and pretty much stick to my family's original recipe but when I tried this during a cooking demo at HEB, I knew I had to purchase it. It pulls in all the traditional flavors of a pork roast but it seems to do a better job at keeping the everything extra most while equally seasoning the veggies. You can find this in most stores I believe, but if you can't you can following season with traditional spices and add 1 box of beef broth.
5. Cook on high for 4-6 hours (I find each crock pot is different, so just monitor this until the pork is cooked through and reaches your desired tenderness). Enjoy with warm biscuits and ice tea!
I hope y'all have a great Wednesday. See you tomorrow!
