“A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.” ~ Pat Riley

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!

Roll Tide.

    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

  2. pooreamy says:

    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!

    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 😊

      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!!

    My husband wouldn’t let me leave your page without saying “Roll Tide!” lol! Thanks for the recipe, sounds delish. 🙂

    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 🙂

    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?

    • pooreamy says:

      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.

    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…

    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.
    Thank you!

    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.
