I looked and didn't find any pork roast made this way. This is the way I have made a Pork Butt Roast our entire marriage of 48 years. It is easy and oh so tender, juicy and delicious. I always serve it with mashed potatoes and make gravy from the rich drippings. If you make a large roast the leftovers can be made into many other dishes...even BBQ pork sandwhiches if you simmer some of it in BBQ sauce until it is absorbed.
- 3 -4 lbs pork butt
- 2 tablespoons instant minced onion
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- Season meat on all sides with salt and pepper.
- Place roast in slow cooker.
- Sprinkle dried onions on top of roast.
- Lay bay leaves on top.
- 1 cup chicken broth.
- Cook for 1 hour on high.
- Lower heat to low and cook another 6-8 hours on low or until fork tender.
I rarely gush over roast, especially pork roast, but I will here! The flavor from a few ingredients deserves more than 5 stars. The roast has a nice herb undertone with garlic and onions. I loved the bay leaves here! The gravy was excellent and using the crockpot was super easy too. I made gravy with the drippings, a cornstarch slurry, and a little Kitchen Bouquet. Thank you for sharing the recipe Carrol. It's now in my keeper file. :-)
I added a can of cream of mushroom soup. The soup made a great sauce. My family really liked it so i'll make it again.
This was really good and so tender. I think I will use a little less garlic next time (personal preference). Thanks for a great recipe.
