Sounds simple huh? And something that you should be able to find a recipe for easily right? WRONG! Almost all of the recipes that I came across when searching for a recipe were sweet. One thing Tony hates is sweet pork. Sadly I am sure the rest of us like it but just never get to eat it…
This recipe came from about 10 different sources that I put together. I am claiming it as mine and it is delicious! I may have over cooked it a bit this time but trust me on this the first time I made it perfectly! I will be making this again and again!
I used a pork sirloin roast. The one in the mesh cotton bag. I am sure any one but the tenderloin would work, would be too dry. The picture below is only one of the 2 pieces in the bag.
Pork Roast in a Crockpot
Peel some garlic and pierce the roast with as many holes as you have garlic and push the garlic into the holes. I do about 3 or 4 cloves in each piece of meat. (the garlic will be pushed out during cooking, see pic, but the flavor is still there)
Make a mixture of:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/4 tsp rosemary
1 tsp lemon zest
dash of ground cloves
rub this all over the meat and place in the crockpot.
Add 1/2 cup of water around the side and cook on low for about 6 hrs.
Thicken the juice with some flour to make a gravy to serve with the egg noodles you will really want to have with this!!!
***As a rule we only eat “Happy Meat” but happy pork roast is hard to come by here. I did break the rule on this one and used CAFO pork *hanging my head in shame* but my family really wanted pork…
