I made this for my family. My husband tells me every night at dinner that that night's dinner was the best dinner he has ever had. However, when he tells me that a dinner is "screamin"... I know it is a really great dinner. Not only did I get a "screamin" response to this meal.. it was also named in the top 3 they have ever had... including their mothers. (My husband's friend was also present for dinner.) My 8 year old stepson requested 2nds! I'd say it is a keeper! Thank you for posting! Please note: I used a picnic pork roast. I cut the majority of the fat off of the roast, fried it up in a pan, and used that fat (rather than oil) to sear the roast before putting it in the slow cooker. It allowed the dinner to keep the pork fat flavor that they love.
I doubled the recipe because our roast was almost 4 lbs. Our meat was called a pork picnic roast. I added just one cut up onion and about 2 garlic cloves chopped up, placed on top of the meat with the veggies and the liquid poured around it. I cooked mine on low for actually 9 hours because we weren't ready for dinner until then. The flavor was so good. The meat was tender and fell apart. I used some of the crock pot liquid to make a gravy. I did the corn starch method for the gravy: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_make_gravy/
