Sorry... not really a recipe as I've only did a Pork Roast once in a CP.. All I did was add a little bit of water and tons of salt & pepper and cooked it on low for 8hrs..It doesn't look very appetizing when finished but it is so tender and tastes great! Good Luck..I hope someone else has some recipes for you..
I just coat with a little olive oil, shake on salt, pepper and Lawry's seasoning salt and put a little bit of beer (less than 1/2 a can) in the crock pot, set at low and cook for about 8 hours, pulls right apart.
It sounds gross, but it is SO good that it's the only way I cook pork roast now.
One can of Pepsi (not diet), one can cream of mushroom soup, and one packet onion soup mix--- dump those things over your roast and cook on low all day. Be sure to make mashed potatoes for all that yummy gravy.
I've used Pepsi, Coca Cola, rootbeer, ginger-ale -- the soda can even be what went flat in the 2-liter bottle. I've also used apple juice and orange juice. Gotta season it with Goya Adobo seasoning, black or lemon pepper, garlic and either onion or onion soup mix.
Sometimes I use BBQ sauce, but I cook the meat, drain some of the meat juices and cook it about 1/2 to 1 hour more with sauce.
Most of the time I just just use some water and a packet of onion soup mix. I never use the cream soup because I usually make my own homemade gravy with the meat juices.
The last time I did everything 'from scratch'... about 3 onions, peeled and quartered, 5 or 6 cloves of garlic and enough water to 1/2 cover the roast. It was wonderful tasting, fell off the bone and the house smelled sooooo good all day long as it cooked.
I've pretty much cooked mine like everyone here. The one thing I have done a little differently is I brown my roast in a little oil on the stove first.......all sides. It tends to hold together a little better after cooking all day in the cp.
In the cp I use onion soup mix with mushroom soup low fat low sodium or
*make it like a ham--brown sugar or pineapple, mustard water
*Bbq sauce on it
*Mrs. dash with lots of onions, water
*onions, carrots, and brwon gravy dry mix with a little water
We just our a bottle of Dale's Sauce in the CP, add the roast and cook. About two three hours before it is to be served we add some onions, potatoes and carrots. I don't eat the meat but the potatoes, carrots and onions cooked in Dale's are great. It is also good to dip your bread in. I think Dale's is a regional item, available primary in the south, but if you google it there are lots of copycat recipes for it.
One of my families favorites is Lemon Pepper Pork. Super easy and pretty frugal.
Put roast in a crock pot. Fill with water to cover. Squeeze 1 lemon into the water, and add peel to pot (you will remove this before eating), then you can either add just pepper or if you have lemon-pepper seasoning on hand, a few shakes of that.
It is great alone as a roast, or shredded on a sandwich.
