How to make it

  • I guess the first step is to put the plastic crock pot liner on. If you've never used them, they really *do* make things a lot easier. I'm just sayin'.
  • Anyway, get your veggies ready. Once cut, keep the potatoes submerged in water until ready to use. This is important because we don't want them to oxidize. You can use other things with it like celery, mushrooms or carrots or whatever, I just used what I had on hand. Drain and put all the stuff on the bottom of the slow cooker without the meat.
  • In a separate bowl, crush up about 1 Tbspn rosemary and thyme and a few dashes of smokehouse maple seasoning (which I love with a passion and put on nearly everything). Throw it into the potato/onion/apple mix and toss it until it's coated evenly.
  • Then mix what's left of the herb mixture plus a dollop of honey and use it as a rub for the pork roast. Once that's done, place your roast on top of everything, fill the machine up about halfway with chicken stock and let it simmer for about 8 hours.
  • This is the very first thing I've ever made in a slow cooker and I just couldn't get over how absolutely amazing it came out. I think my girlfriend basted it a few times during the day but I don't think it would have suffered much if she hadn't.
  • So now that I'm a believer, the only question left to ask is.... what are we gonna make next??

    I was searching for a slow cooker pork loin recipe and saw this. I was intrigued by the smokehouse maple seasoning ( I've never had it) and thought , "hey, I have maple syrup" So this gave me an idea!! I did change a few things, I used less chicken stock ( only used about a cup) so that the potatoes didn't fall apart. I had a small pork loin so it only took 4 hours on low. I used all the leftover liquid/juices to make a quick pan gravy with, it was delish! more here: Supah Slammin Slow Cooker Pork

    Grats to you on the slow cooker. I got a replacement for my broken one at Christmas. I'll tell you what I'd be hard pressed to imagine not having one in the kitchen. I didn't actually start using mine until a year or two ago but look forward to dragging it out on every occaision. This pork recipe sounds like a perfect celebration in a crockpot and so timely for New Years good luck food.
