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.
- Season both sides of pork roast with your choice of dry seasonings.
- In a shallow roasting pan brown the roast under the broiler about 5 minutes on each side or you can brown on top the stove in a cast iron skillet with a touch of oil.
- This step enhances the flavor and seals the juices in the meat, and renders any excess fat from the roast.
- While roast is browning, slice large onion into thick slices and separate into rings.
- Place 1/2 of the rings in the bottom of the crock pot.
- Take the browned pork roast and place on top of the onion rings in the crock pot then cover with the other half of the onion rings.
- Pour the 1/4 cup soy sauce over the top of roast, then pour the 1/2 cup water on sides of roast.
- Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5 hours.
- You may have leftovers depending on family size and is great for sandwiches!
- Meat should be falling apart.
