My husband loves pork so I am constantly coming up with new ways to season and cook it. One of our favorite recipes is this rosemary & thyme pork roast. The best part is cooking it in my Crock Pot so I can start it before I leave for work in the morning ( I just adjust my morning routine to allow for the 15 minute prep time it takes to get it started) and dinner is ready when we get home. All I have to do is make the gravy which only takes 5 minutes!

When I cook it on the weekend, I will make an artisan bread or homemade rolls to serve along with it.

Start by prepping the vegetables.

Peel and cube my potatoes, slice my onion, and mince my garlic. The baby carrots are already prepped! The onion and garlic could be prepped the night before if desired.

Rub the roast with the salt and pepper. These amounts can be adjusted according to taste. I estimate about 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. I would like more pepper but the husband doesn’t. Oh, the things we do for those we love.

Sear

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until it begins to glisten. Sear each side of the roast until it starts to become a light golden brown.

Place the roast in the slow cooker and add the rosemary,thyme, and garlic directly on top of the roast.

Place the vegetables around the roast then add the broth and water. I don’t quite cover the roast with the liquid. It is going to cook for 8-10 hours so there will ultimately be plenty of liquid to keep it moist and make it yummy tender.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours. It is ready to serve after 8 hours but I am gone longer than that, with my commute time my days are at minimum 10 hours. Whoever gets home first turns it down to warm until we are ready to make the gravy and have dinner.

Coming home to a house that smells delicious is a bonus to this recipe!
