Simple but tasty slow cooked pork roast recipe. The pork comes out very moist & tender with great flavor. This is a great recipe that you can cook in half the time on high, but mostly I cook it on low when I'm out of the house longer than 6-8 hours. You can also add additional seasonings to fit your tastes, sometimes I add Rosemary or Thyme or Basil or Oregano or Garlic or Onion Powder... etc... This also works well with thick cut pork chops too instead of loin roast.
- Coat bottom of crock pot with olive oil then add the 3 thick slices of onion.
- Place roast on top of the onion slices (onion makes a little shelf for roast so it does not stick to bottom of crock). Season pork as desired, insert garlic cloves randomly into meat then coat entire roast with "Saucy Susan" (if you absolutely cannot find "Saucy Susan", substitute with equal parts peach & apricot jelly).
- Add the can of sauerkraut (undrained) and the broth to crock trying not to wash seasonings & sauce off of roast while adding.
- Cover with lid & cook on high 4-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours.
