A pork roast crock pot recipe simmered in a rich molasses sauce – Different and Delicious!

What You’ll Need…

  • A 3 to 4 lb. bone-in pork roast
  • 1 cup of celery, coarsely chopped
  • one half of a large sweet onion (my personal favorite, but any onion will be just fine!)
  • 2 cloves of well minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 2 cups of chicken stock (I make it myself, but a good store-bought stock will do just fine!)
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • one half cup of black srtap molasses
  • Salt and pepper to taste

NOTE:…I use a 6.5 quart Chefman Slow Cooker with Die-Cast Insert. In this particular recipe, any good quality slow cooker will serve up a delicious pork roast. In some other recipes that I publish here, I use the insert to sear meats on the stove before cooking in my slow cooker.

Before you begin, combine the molasses and ground mustard in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.

With your slow cooker on high heat, combine the pork roast, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and thyme. Pour in the chicken stock and the mustard/molasses mixture. Give it all a bit of a stir, cover it with the lid, and go away!

Let it cook undisturbed for about 4 (medium done meat) to 5 (well done meat) hours, put it all on a serving platter, and enjoy your dinner…

Serves 5 or six people.


An Aside..

If you love using your slow cooker even nearly as much as I do, you really should check out The Crock Pot Girls website where they have a 500 slow cooker recipe cookbook available.

I have it and, although I haven’t made anything close to all of their recipes, the ones that I have tried were delicious.
