Easy Crock Pot Pork Roast

I made this for dinner tonight and I must say – it was AMAZING!  And it was super simple, a win-win in my book.  This could easily feed a family of four or be a good dinner for two with some leftovers for lunch or tomorrow night’s dinner.  My husband and I eat very generous portions but the recipe could feed up to 6 people as well (but I’d through in some rolls for a side just in case).  Enjoy!

Pork Roast – delicious and a new go-to recipe!

1-pound bag baby yukon gold potatoes (or redskin potatoes would work too)
1 medium sweet yellow onion, roughly chopped
1 cup (or small pre-packaged) baby carrots
4 ribs of celery coarsely chopped
2 pounds pork butt
1 envelope of Lipton Onion Mushroom
1 1/2 cups of water

1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray

2. Place potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery on the bottom of your pot

3. Place pork butt on top of veggies, sprinkle with the seasoning envelope and pour water all over it

4. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.  Before serving, gently shred the pork with some kitchen tongs.

5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
