Trying to stay on my high-protein, low-carb diet, pork roast is one of my very favorite foods.
I have it for breakfast (mixed salad greens + pork roast + 1/2 a tomato + a hard-boiled egg) in a salad. Add some Italian dressing and I’m good to go. (As long as I have a cup of coffee to go along with it!)
I take it to work and either re-heat it in the microwave or eat it cold. Matters not to me. It’s easy to pack in my lunch bag and makes for a tasty lunch-time treat.
The rest of my family likes it too. They may have a slice or chunk of it along with a baked potato or some cheesy potatoes. I might have it along with some steamed green beans or California-blend veggies.
Here’s the super-simple recipe:
Add a center-cut, boneless pork roast to your slow cooker. Chunk up two onions. Add to cooker. Sprinkle all with 4-5 shakes of Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute. Add a big pinch of freshly-ground pepper. Add one cup of water to the cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or until meat thermometer reads at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit (as recommended by the USDA).
