A lady at our church makes this for potlucks and my four year old, first time he tasted it said, Mommie, you must make this! So I begged the recipe and we make it alot for a fast, easy but impressive weeknight meal
OH, the garlic was so good in this roast! We had it for supper that night and then the next day for sandwiches! I did not cook mine as long just depends on your cooker. Update: the photo I took on March 09, 2004 makes me think I roasted this in the oven. If so, I would have roasted it to 145 degrees and let it rest to finish cooking.
This recipe came from the recipe book that came with my rival crock pot. I have lost my recipe book so am writing this from memory and experience. This is a wonderful recipe for a tasty, inexpensive, and really easy pork roast. This recipe is for pork butt (shoulder) roast. I do not know if it would work for pork loin or tenderloin roast because they don't have enough fat and may become tough.
Every New Years Day for about 5 years I sent this out the the Maintenance men at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, along with a big pan of cornbread, and the slow cooker always came home empty! It's good luck for New Years.
This is an old recipe that I got from my mother, she never made it when I was younger because she doesn't like sweet potatoes. I have made this recipe now quite a few times and it always turns out moist and delicious. The mustard is optional, and I leave that out as my family doesn't like mustard, although I think it still tastes good with it. The sauce at the end is also optional, I have eaten it before without the sauce and it is still wonderful. The sauce adds a little extra touch though, but use it sparingly, or it will really overpower the great taste of the pork.
