Slow Cooker Pork Roast: A Fall Progressive Dinner & Giveaway

 I have teamed up with lots of other fabulous bloggers to bring you the Fall edition of the Progressive Dinner Party.
The theme for this edition is Comfort Foods... mmmm! 
And thanks to our fabulous sponsors, Black Gold Farms, Park and Main, Le Creuset, and Magimix,  you can enter to win a prize pack worth $904

With the weather getting cooler, I LOVE to pull out the slow cooker and make some yummy meals with it and today's meal is one of our favorites.

Slow Cooker Pork Roast
I just love being able to prepare the meat in the morning, throw it in the slow cooker, and forget about it until dinner time!
Makes things so easy especially as schedules get much busier during the fall season.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 6 to 8 hours depending on how you set your slow cooker

Ingredients for Pork Roast:
-Pork Roast
-Garlic Powder
-Onion Powder
-Lawry's Seasoned Salt
-1 packet of Onion Soup Mix
-White Onion

1. Rinse your pork roast and pat dry with a paper towel.

2. Season with the garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and Lawry's Salt to your taste. I put a generous amount on the pork and rub it in with my hand.

3. Place meat in slow cooker. If you have a fattier side on your meat, I like to place that side on top so the fat drips down over the meat as it cooks to keep it moist.

4. Cut 1 or 2 slices of your onion and cut into chunks. Place on and around your pork roast in the slow cooker.

5. Mix the onion soup mix with the recommended amount of water and pour over and around the pork roast.

6. Cover and turn on your slow cooker for the amount of time you want it to cook. 
I usually cook my roast for 6 hours.

Once your meat is complete, pull it out and it is ready to serve. 
Normally it is so tender that it just falls apart as I pull my roast out of the slow cooker so I just continue to pull the rest apart.

Serve with your favorite sides or you can even serve it up on a bun as BBQ. 
Whatever you like!
