Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Vegetables
Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Vegetables is one of the perfect comfort foods. To begin with, the aromas in the house while it is cooking in the slow cooker will send you over the top. Since there’s just two of us I am cooking for, I always have leftovers–I use a large enough roast and cut up enough vegetables to be sure to have seconds. And the sauce is pretty tasty too.
I like to make a thick gravy with the drippings left in the crockpot. I generally have the first round with just the meat and vegetables. Then when I am ready for the seconds, I take the leftovers out of the fridge, skim off any fat on top, put the firmed-up drippings in a saucepan , and thicken the drippings with a cornstarch and milk slurry. Why not serve Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Vegetables alongside my Ooey Gooey Butter Bars for dessert. You will be glad you did!
