Heres a caraway flavored pork roast served with a sour cream gravy. Use your crock pot and it will be an easy supper. Very good with Bavarian style sauerkraut.

Very nice change of pace from the pork roasts that i usually fix, & the only thing that changed was my addition of a little lemon pepper when I made the gravy! Served it with a side of homemade applesauce, something I much prefer over sauerkraut, although my other half had some of the latter nearby! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
