Crafty Dad Cooking :: Pork Roast

Center Cut Boneless Pork Roast in the CrockPot Slow Cooker

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).

    It is super-easy. And makes for good left-overs too. I’ve not been blogging much here. I’ve switched focus and I’m going to be blogging and podcasting over at my Be Strong. Stay Strong. site. Here’s the link: http://www.bestrongstaystrong.com
