Crock Pot Pork Roast and Gravy
This crock pot pork roast is one of the easiest crock pot recipes ever! The gravy makes itself right in the slow cooker and you’ll have juicy, flavorful pork and gravy to come home to! Big thanks to Smithfield for sponsoring this post.
I received a comment from a reader the other day that they only use their slow cooker in the winter.
You guys, just curious, are all of you that way? Is the slow cooker a seasonal thing or do you use it year round??
Personally, I use it all year! I use it in when it’s cold out because it always produces comfort food. I use it when it’s warm out because it keeps me from heating up the kitchen.
And I use it most of all because it’s convenient and easy and the food always comes out delicious.
Am I alone? Tell me I’m not alone.
Anyway, this slow cooker pork roast recipe is one that you’re going to want to eat allllll. year. long.
I made this one in partnership with Smithfield. I love using their marinated fresh pork in recipes because a lot of the seasoning work is already done for you and the cuts of meat are always good.
Smithfield’s Marinated Fresh Pork is available in a variety of cuts and flavors. This time around we’re going with the Homestyle Marinated Fresh Pork Roast. It’s perfect for the slow cooker.
How to cook a pork roast:
There are many ways to cook a pork roast and each are delicious. How do you go wrong with pork?
I’ve made pork roast in the oven by searing it on the stove and then placing it in the oven at a lower temperature to slow roast. You’ll end up with juicy pork every time.
But, an even easier method is to use a slow cooker!
Smithfield’s pork roast is already seasoned, but we’re going to add a few extra ingredients so that gravy is made right in the slow cooker with no extra work for you.
Before adding your pork roast to the slow cooker, dump in 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and a packet of onion soup mix. Starting with these products keeps dinner easy and convenient. You can use my cream of chicken soup substitute if you prefer.
Stir the soup and seasoning together and then add your pork roast. Spoon a bit of the gravy mixture over the top of the pork and cover the slow cooker.
Pork roast cooking time:
You can cook this crock pot pork roast on high for about 5 hours or on low for 8-9 hours.
It’s important to remember that every slow cooker cooks a little differently. Some run hotter than others, so your best bet is to plan for the longer amount of time and then reduce the temperature to ‘keep warm.’ Your pork will stay nice and juicy in the slow cooker for another couple of hours this way.
When the roast is done and you’re ready to eat, shred the meat with two forks and stir it into the gravy.
I like to serve this pork roast recipe over mashed potatoes, but it’s also good over my buttered egg noodles.
