Pork Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

I got 2 Hatfield pork roasts at Giant today for around $3.25 each (B1G1 sale, plus two $2/1 coupons from the 10/16 RP).  We haven’t had a pork roast in probably 2 years, so I set about creating a recipe.  Ingredients:

  • Boneless pork roast
  • 6 carrots, sliced
  • 5 potatoes, cut into small chunks
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 t. thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups broth (chicken or beef)

Put the potatoes and carrots at the bottom of the slow cooker.  Cut the roast in half and place on top of the vegetables.  Mix together the mustard, thyme, salt, and pepper, and rub over the roast.  Pour broth over all.

Cook on low for approximately 8 hours, or high for approximately 5 hours.

This was a great recipe for a cool fall evening.  We added some homemade applesauce, which rounded out the meal.  The pork ended up really tender.  In Kayla’s words, “Mommy, this meat isn’t as hard as usual.”  Thanks, sweetheart!
