I love a tender roast...and my crockpot has always been a trusted standby. This time, however, I was determined to figure out how to get the tenderness and yet still keep the form of the meat I was cooking. I tried this wet rub over an oven-cooked Pork Roast and it turned out so good I may not be using the crockpot again for a good long while! A little more or less of any of the ingredients probably wouldn't change much of the end result, so have fun and make it your own. The best part? I didn't marinate or pre-brown a thing and we never missed the extra effort! Be sure and read the directions through before starting and try not to omit the lemon juice if possible (I used that easy-squeeze stuff) because lemon juice naturally breaks down the fibers in meat to tenderize. Don't worry...your roast wont taste lemon-y in the end....it'll just be tender!
