Are you looking for a go-to Crock Pot Pork Roast that is fantastic every time? This Oh-So-Flavorful Pork Roast recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Christmas Favorites is phenomenal!
Do you have trouble cooking a slice-able pork roast? We all love the shredded pork that slow cookers are known for, but it is easy to make a nice slices of pork roast in a crock pot if you reduce your cooking time just a smidgen.
Oh-So-Flavorful Crock Pot Pork Roast
The secret to a nice flavorful sliced pork roast is cooking it to right around 145 degrees and giving it a few minutes to rest before slicing. I love my Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker‘s built in meat thermometer for recipes like this one. You can program it to cook to a certain internal temperature– how cool is that?!?
Truth be told, a lot of times our slow cookers cook a lot faster on low than what our tried and true recipes call for… For example, this recipe called for 3-4 hours on high or 6- 8 hours on low. However, my roast was perfectly done and slice-able on low at about 4 1/2 hours.
I always recommend that when in doubt you should watch a new recipe closely and mark down the time YOUR slow cooker takes when trying it for the first time and then you will know how long your pot takes for a particular recipe. I find a lot of my crock pots cook a LOT faster than the time almost any recipe calls for– so, if you are having trouble with over-cooked or dried out food… try reducing your time a bit.
One more note about this lovely pork roast… once you slice it up, return it to its juices to keep it nice and juicy before serving.
