Start Cooking in the Morning with Crock Pot Pork Roast
What’s better than a flavorful pork that cooks all day long, filling the house with warm scents of spices and love. Because it’s September, I find myself gravitating to my crock pot, for which I put together the ingredients for a Crock Pot Pork Roast. If you can get organized in the morning–this recipe takes literally 5 minutes to prepare–you can have a delicious meal on the table for dinner that night.
All about the spices.
I grew up with McCormick spices in our family kitchen, and I love when they come out with something new and easy for the home cook. This time I used their All Natural Bourbon Spiced Pork seasoning mix and added chopped onions, garlic, and white wine, with a drizzle of Worcestershire sauce on top.
You can also make your own rub, but this one in particular has brown mustard seed, chili pepper, black pepper, paprika, cinnamon, sea salt, brown sugar, garlic, onion, red bell pepper. They also added natural flavors of oak, barley, and bourbon. Even if you took 3-4 of these ingredients, it would make a fantastic rub.
Cook it slow.
The secret to pork, as most of us know, is to cook it slowly, all day long. The slower, the more tender it becomes. The crock pot was my mama’s friend, a big deal with her cooking, because she was organized and started her cooking in the morning hours. The house always smelled so good.
Speaking of the home … I bought some mums and set out a fresh bag of apples. Mums and apples to me means that autumn is …. here! (Are you tagging your beautiful autumn photos on Instagram with #gloriousautumn ? :)
Start in the morning.
Start in the morning by reading something inspirational and planning out your day, and think ahead to what you’ll be placing on the table for dinner that night.
Today I started with one onion …
By the end of the day we served this tender Crock Pot Pork Roast with a simple Caprese Gnocchi Bake, and a Summer Slaw (both recipes to come).
I do love this time of year and hope to be sharing some delicious meals—simple crock pot, easy to get on the table, little stress, even good enough for company—this autumn season.
