When it comes to Sunday dinner, I try to make it as easy on myself as possible so I have more time to spend with my family and less time in the kitchen. That’s why this crock pot pork roast is a favorite meal of mine (and my family’s)!

When I was in college, I was introduced to the slow cooker, or crock pot, method of cooking.  Don’t ask me how I was unaware of this amazing appliance before then but I was.  After seeing how awesome they were, I asked for one for Christmas so I could use it on days when I was going to be gone at school and work and didn’t want to worry about food.  When I was single and in college, my roommates and I often had friends over for Sunday dinner (or any night really) and a crock pot could feed a lot of people.  It was perfect!

Now that I’m in charge of Sunday dinner most weeks, I often turn to my crock pot.  It’s so easy to throw everything in before church and come home to some mouthwatering smells.  One of my most often cooked Sunday dinners is pork roast.  I always try to keep my eye out for when they are on sale and stock up on two or three.  They are cheaper than beef roasts and by using a crock pot, I can maintain the juiciness and add flavor.

How to Make Crock Pot Pork Roast

To make a crock pot pork roast, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Throw this pork roast in the crock pot on low for 8 hours and you've got dinner!

Begin by prepping the veggies.  Wash and cut the potatoes into cubes.  I don’t generally peel them but you definitely can if you don’t like them on.  If you use baby carrots, then there isn’t any prep required but you could also use whole carrots chopped down to size.

Measure 4 cups of water into a microwavable bowl or glass measuring cup and add 4 beef bouillon cubes.  Microwave on high for a couple of minutes and stir to get the cubes dissolved.  They don’t have to be completely dissolved but most of the way is best.  If you want to use beef broth from a can or box, then just measure out 4 cups.  Same thing goes for a beef base.  Just use enough to make 4 cups of broth.

Place the pork roast into the crock pot.  You can put it in frozen or thawed depending on whether or not you remembered to pull it out of the freezer. *wink*  Put the potatoes and carrots into the crock pot.

Put the lid on top and cook for 7-8 hours on LOW or 3-4 hours on HIGH.  (Although I really recommend cooking it on LOW, especially if it is frozen when you started.)

Can you use beef broth with pork roast?

Yes! By using beef broth instead of chicken broth, you are infusing the flavor of beef into your pork roast without the price tag.

Does pork roast taste just like a beef roast?

No. But that doesn’t mean this roast isn’t delicious when prepared the way I share in this post! You will still end up with a tender, fall apart roast that your family will love.

    I made this last night. I actually had all the ingredients, so this was an easy recipe to get going. Set on Low (originally for 7 hours), but it was ready about 6 1/2 hrs. I did everything according to recipe, and it turned out so good, that there were no leftovers! Not even the broth!
    Three of us (there were 5) had second helpings: me, my husband, my father. And now my daughter-in-law wants her own slow cooker and this recipe.

    The trend seems to be that when a blogger posts a recipe, viewers/readers will say how tasty it looks, or it looks delicious/yummy/mouth-watering, but no one ever comes back to say if it was successful.
    Well. it was so successful, I’m keeping this in my family’s winter rotation.
