This tender, flavorful easy pork roast is the perfect meal for any occasion!
This pork roast is our go-to Sunday meal. It’s so easy, you could practically make it in your sleep.
For this recipe, I suggest a 2-3 pound pork roast. I get mine at Costco. It comes in a 4-pack. The kind that I buy has up to 10% of a solution of broth and salt. After I buy it, I cut the pack apart (so I have four separate roasts) and put it in the freezer. When I want to prepare a roast, I just get one out of my freezer and put it into my crock pot. It is not necessary to thaw. Then I just sprinkle salt and pepper on it, followed by a generous sprinkling of poultry seasoning. That’s it!
Oh, and then I have to remember to turn on the crock pot. That part is important! I cook this on low for 8 hours or on high for 4. If you are cooking this pork from a frozen state on high, you may want to cook it for 5 hours. The last time I made it, I just cooked it for four hours, and it came out more pink than my family likes. But I tested the internal temperature to make sure it was safe to eat, so I know it was done. Just FYI, the internal temperature of pork should be 145 degrees fahrenheit. My pork roast always turns out so tender and flavorful. My oldest daughter (who is allergic to everything) LOVES this pork. It is one of the few things she can eat, and she is in heaven every time I make it.
When I am cooking this from its frozen state, I don’t add any liquid to the bottom of the crock pot. If the meat is fresh or thawed, I may add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water. Likewise, if you get a pork roast that has not had broth and salt added to it, you may want to add more salt.
This pork pairs well with mashed potatoes, rice, and any kind of vegetable. And if you have leftovers, you can use the meat in enchiladas, taquitos, sandwiches–the possibilities are endless!
