    I bought a HUGE pork roast last night & I'm putting in the crock pot this morning--my hubby is out of town but my parents, one of my sisters and her boyfriend are on their way from Portland! [​IMG] so I am making a roast in the crock pot and roasted red potatoes & green beans...

    I have a few recipes for pork roast--but I'm kind of bored with them...

    Anyone have any that are easy, super-good and don't require weird/exotic ingredients? I am not going to town until this afternoon--when my mom & I have facials at the spa! [​IMG]

    Updated, see page two...I went with a BBQ one...

    I take my roast and cut X's in it all over (the side i leave up), then take garlic cloves and slice them in med. pieces and stuff the roast with garlic, gives it really good flavor. I also put a bay leaf on the top for some additional flavor to the juice while cooking. Just my thoughts. [​IMG]

    I usually make it one of two ways--dump a few bottles of BBQ sauce in & call it good. Serve it with mashed potatoes & corn. It's really good the next day with melted cheese on sub rolls...

    Or, I use cream of mushroom soup (no water though), a splash of Worcestershire sauce, a 1/2 a packet of Lipton's onion soup mix and a little soy sauce. I serve that with mashed potatoes & corn...it's GOOD...

    But I only have one can (family size but still not enough) and this roast is a big one...

    I dump a quart of homemade spaghetti sauce over mine. Tastes sooooo good! I also add extra garlic then, too [​IMG]

    After the roast is gone I strain the juices, grinding as much through the strainer as I can. After it cools in the fridge I remove the layer of fat. There wil be a layer of juice next; makes awesome rice dishes or stock for soups. The rest makes the BEST homemade tomato soup you've ever had in your life! Just add a little milk. It's really rich and filling due to the pork juices.

    Okay...after scouring the cupboards I've decided to just go with the old BBQ method...although I'm going to change it up a little bit...

    I'm making white chicken chili on Sunday in the crock pot...
