I know, I know, it’s Summer and I shouldn’t be cooking hot, comfort food! This recipe is made in the crock pot so you won’t have to heat up your oven and it’s simply DELICIOUS! All credit goes to Doublebugs.com for the recipe!
Here are the ingredients… (Printable recipe below)
Start by heating up your olive oil in a skillet.
Add salt and pepper to roast and then coat in flour.
Brown the pork roast on each side for just a few minutes so those yummy juices are sealed inside of the roast.
Place browned roast in your crock pot and set on high.
See all of these little drippings in the pan?? We’re going to “de-glaze the pan” by adding the soup mix, cream of mushroom and broth to these drippings- This makes the sauce delicioso!
Here’s the yummy sauce all together!
Once the sauce is combined, add it to the lonely roast in the crock pot.
Put the lid on and let it go!!! Come back in about 6 hours and whisk a little cornstarch/water mixture to the liquid to thicken it to make the gravy. Allow the liquid to cook for about 20 minutes more!
I totally forgot to take a picture of the final product, but here is a pic of the leftovers!! I served the roast with mashed potatoes (gravy too) and steamed broccoli. My family gobbled it up!
