It’s a good day to be an Alabama fan! Whoot, Whoot! Rooooolllll Tide!
BACK to BACK championships! The 3rd in 4 years! And being the wife of an Auburn fan, I must add it is the 4th in a row for the state of Alabama with AU taking the other of the four.
We are the football state if you ask me.
But I am pooped – I was up way past my bedtime watching that game. So tonight is an easy dinner night, which usually means a crockpot dinner. And tonight that crockpot dinner is a very flavorful pork roast I found on allrecipes.com.
Yummo Pork Roast
- 1 (2 pound) pork roast
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup beef stock
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
Place pork roast in slow cooker and top with onion soup and water.
Add in beef stock and soy sauce. Mix well and turn to coat.
Top with minced garlic. Spread over top of roast.
Cook on high for 5 hours. (about 4 hours in start basting a little with the sauce and with with about 10 minutes left flip and mix in the garlic)
Remove roast from cooker. Slice pork and serve with sauce.
I served it with refrigerated mashed pototoes (I like Bob Evans) and a bagged salad.
Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Pork roast is something I don’t know how to cook! Your’s looks so yummy!
You should try it! Very simple. The good thing about pork is that it can be so flavorful and tender and it is not expensive. Thanks for your comment!
Is the roast frozen or not? Going to try it today!
It was not frozen. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂
Made this for Easter dinner and it was a big hit!!
I’m so glad everyone enjoyed it!! Thanks for the comment!! 🙂
Can I cook this on low? If so, how long?
Ashley – I’m sure you can, of course, it all depends on size but anytime i cook a roast on low, I cook for 8 hours. They are usually more tender when you cook on low as well.
Thanks! Can’t wait to try it!
Great!! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
I can’t find the printer friendly version. Am I missing it somewhere?
No, Missy, you’re not. Unfortunately, I’m not tech savvy enough to add that option. I wish I could! So sorry! 😦
Making this now. Your picture doesn’t show as much liquid as when I added the 3/4 stock, 1 cup water and soy sauce? Hope it still comes out ok
The slow cookers could possibly be different sizes and that makes liquid levels look different. I don’t believe it will make a difference in the outcome. I hope you enjoy it!
Do you think this would work with a boneless pork loin?
Ginny, I think that would work just fine 🙂
I think it’s so cute that you reply to all of your comments. Also, I’m putting this in the crock pot right now…it’s a favorite of ours 😊
Hi! Thanks! I do try and respond to everyone’s comment 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!!
Looks delicious! Can I use frozen pork roast?
I’m sure a frozen pork roast would be fine but I would think it would need to be thawed some first. You could probably cook it longer on low but having never done that – I’m not sure how it would affect the other ingredients. I would love to know if you try! 🙂
Turned out amazing! I cooked it on low for about 9-10 hours and it was great! Thank you for the delicious recipe!
Made this the other night and it was DELICIOUS! We used a bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce near the end, and I’m just about to put a beef roast in the crockpot to see if it tastes as yummy with beef as it does with pork! (I’m sure it will be a hit!) thanks for the delicious recipe!!
Thanks!!! I bet it will be fabulous with the beef! Please let me know how it turns out!! 🙂
How about pork chops?! I have some frozen I’ve been trying to find a recipe for. Think so?
I think so, just cook low and slow! 🙂
My husband wouldn’t let me leave your page without saying “Roll Tide!” lol! Thanks for the recipe, sounds delish. 🙂
Love it! Roll Tide!
Hi Amy! I just threw this in the crockpot right now, I’m curious though – do you happen to have the nutritional information for this recipe? Hope it turns out – fingers crossed 🙂
Hi! I am so sorry but I do not have that info. 😦 If I did, I would have been more than happy to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!
Can I use beef broth over beef stock?
Yes, that would be fine 🙂
Trying this today. The pork roast i got was 7 pounds so I cut it into about 4 pounds and just doubled the amounts in your recipe. I think it’s turning into shredded pork now. I was kind of hoping it looked like your picture. We’ll see how it finishes though. The sauce doesn’t look very thick, any suggestions?
Honesty, you probably have a more fatty piece of pork (like a Boston butt) which will shred like BBQ meat. The one I used was quite lean. I personally like the fattier meat myself :). As for the consistency, it was not very thick but you could always add a cornstarch slurry (cornstarch and water whisked together) to thicken it up.
I finally had the chance to make this recipe- it was amazing! I used a pork butt roast and it was great. I shared it- and the purple cauliflower mash- on my weekly meal recap cheers!
Great recipe! Made it last night with a large boneless pork roast. Cooked on low for 5 hours. About 1 1/2 hours before it was done I added potatoes and baby carrots. The dish was great. I used a whole can of beef broth as I did not want to waste it. Could of done without the water then. I also sliced a onion and layer it under the roast . Another recipe said that they did this and it was great. Thank you
Maybe a dumb question but I don’t know the answer!! Do I cut the strings off before I cook or afterwards?? My pork roast came in web is strings…
Hi! Not a dumb question! Yes, cut the strings off and discard 🙂
Do we cut the strings before or after cooking? I think I missed it in the reply. I have a roast ready to cook.
Yes, you cut beforehand 🙂
I made this today and it is amazingly delicious! I just tweaked it a bit by rubbing a small amount of sage on the pork. One of the best I’ve made.
Yum!! I bet the sage really kicked it up some! I’ll have to try that! Glad you enjoyed it!
Dumb question. Could i add potatoes and carrots as well? Would it still cook ok? Looks amazing
No question is dumb! I think it would be fine but I would definitely cook it on low for 8 hours. 🙂
Made this today as it was in the 20’s and snowing. Might be the best pork roast I’ve ever tasted!
That’s awesome! So glad you enjoyed it!!
Roll Tide Roll! We did it again this year! The team or Jalen Hurts did and he cut of all his braids. Saw it on Fb a couple of days ago. Fixin’ Your recipe tonight! RTR
RTR!! Yay! I hope you enjoyed it!!
This was absolutely delicious! My hubby loves pork roast so I surprised him with this, and he gave it rave reviews. THE BEST pork shoulder I ever had. I didn’t use a crock pot, I put it in a dutch oven and cooked it low and slow, came out tender and flavorful. Thank you for a great receipe with everyday ingredients, a rare find.
That is great!! I absolutely love getting comments like this!! 😄
Putting in the crock tonight! Roll Tide!
Yay! Roll Tide!
Should I double the ingredients if my roast is 4 pounds?
Yes, I would double 🙂
Been making this in different variations for 3 years. Just wanted to say Thank you. Kpw
Aww! Thanks! 😁
