Crock Pot Pork Roast with Vegetables and Gravy
This Crock Pot Pork Roast with Vegetables and Gravy recipe will be well received my all the family members that pull up to your dinner table tonight. And because this pork roast recipe is made in a crock pot, you can be sure of truly extraordinary results. The crock pot is one of the best, and simplest, inventions of the 20th century. And every household should have at least one of them, maybe two, because then you could also make dessert in them (and you can!). This roast recipe also has terrific photos on the site, Jamie Cooks It Up, where you can see how this pork roast recipe comes together. If the ingredient list looks long, do not get concerned. Just be sure to put all the ingredients that you need in a line (in the order you need to use them) and that way you will not forget any of them, and you will know that you have all that you need when you begin. This method is known as mise en place, developed by the French (of course!) and is particularly effective when you have several components that are made separately and then must come together. It is also a useful method when you have a long list of things to put together, as in this pork roast recipe, and want to be sure you do not miss any of them!
This pork roast recipe made with veggies and gravy is really a classic. You prepare potatoes and carrots, two traditional veggies to go with the pork roast. A great pairing. When you make the potatoes, although for this crock pot recipe you are asked to peel and chop them, consider leaving the skins on the vegetable. Potatoes have a lot of fiber to offer you when you leave the skins intact, and fiber is a dietary component that we all need more of, especially in our North American way of eating. And the skin will add plenty of flavor to the dish, as well as texture and color. So all round, the skin will only add to this great dinner. The gravy is a sure hit and success made as it is with gravy packets. You could forego these additions as they are loaded with salt and plenty of preservatives. Or, look for organic variations in the grocery store.
A pork roast and veggies is an elegant dinner that, when made in a crock pot, will be tender and juicy every time. It is easy to prepare for the crock pot, and cooks all day long, sending the smell of the dinner all over your home. And the family will come promptly when you say that dinner is served.
