Start Cooking in the Morning with Crock Pot Pork Roast

Crock Pot Pork Roast | reluctantentertainer.com

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.

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.

  1. I’d rather use pork loin…how does that sound?

  2. This looks so good and comforting. Perfect for the cold weather we’re having!

  3. I can not wait to see your other recipes. The Asian slaw looks amazing. Perfect timing for a slower cooker recipe.

  4. My favorite flavor to add to roast is potatoes and gravy! That’s a flavor, right? Looks so good Sandy!

  5. I love cooking roasts in the slow cooker! And my goodness — this one looks amazing. Love all of those flavors. And I can only imagine that comfort food like this is all the more comforting in a welcoming home such as yours. :)

    Love and miss you, friend!
