Crockpot Pork Roast

Monday, April 13th, 2009

This one is super easy and it a family favorite!

Ingredients:

1 – 1-2lb Pork Roast
4-5 new potatoes, peeled (optional) and cubed
1 1/2 cup chopped carrots
1 – envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup (optional – I didn’t have it on hand once and this turned out fine)
1-2 chicken flavored bouillon cubes (I use 2 if I don’t use the cream of mushroom soup)
Enough water to cover
Pepper to taste (you don’t really need to add salt because of the soups)

Directions:

Put everything in the crockpot (veggies on the bottom) and simmer on low for 8 hours (the longer the better).

Enjoy!  🙂
