Learning how to make pork roast in a crockpot should be a requirement for life. This is quite possibly one of the best home cooked meals out there. It doesn’t have to be pork either, this is easily done with beef the same exact way.
Watch the video tutorial here:
Pulling out your crockpot on a busy day is just smart. I do it on days I’m not busy just so I can smell the food cooking all day. Long and slow food is the best food. Some of my other favorite crockpot foods are chili or even corn on the cob! If you don’t have a crockpot, you need to go and order yourself one now!
This meal can be a full meal in itself, but I usually always make another side of veggies. That way, I can be sure to have leftovers, which are great as is, but I also love to make a sourdough skillet meal with the leftovers, too!
How to make pork roast in crockpot
The first step is to season your pork roast and sear it in a cast iron skillet before placing it in the crock pot. If you’re short on time and don’t want to do this step, you can place the meat directly into the slow cooker and skip the searing step. However, the flavor the sear adds is incredible.
The next step is to cook up your veggies. Once again, you can skip this step and just throw them in the crockpot, but you’re missing out on flavor if you do that.
Add some potatoes.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
When the roast shreds easily, you know it is done! Now go enjoy your delicious, homemade meal!
Roast in a Crockpot
- 1 roast (pork or beef)
- 2 tbsp lard or oil
- 2 lbs potatoes (chopped)
- 4 carrots (peeled and chopped)
- 4 celery (chopped)
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 5 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 tsp salt
In a large skillet, heat the lard or oil until melted. Season the roast with salt and pepper. Sear the roast in the lard until all sides have a deep brown crust.
Remove the roast and set in the crockpot.
Add the veggies to the skillet. Saute for 6-8 minutes, or until the onion is softened.
Dump the veggies on top of the roast.
Cut up your potatoes and place potatoes on top.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
