Frugal Recipe: Quick and Easy Pork Roast

A few months ago I had a pork roast to cook but for some unknown reason I was not really in the mood for gravy, which is what we usually cook a pork roast with. I got out the slow cooker, the pork roast and a few other basic ingredients, plus one new addition I had never tried before. A few hours later we were eating one of the most tender, flavorful pork roasts we have ever had. Here is the recipe…


Pork roast

4-6 potatoes, quartered

One small onion, chopped

A couple carrots, sliced

A couple celery stalks, sliced

New addition: one package of onion soup mix


Place the pork roast in the bottom of the slow cooker and surround with the next four ingredients. Mix the onion soup mix with two cups of hot water and slowly pour over other ingredients. Cook on high 3 to 6 hours, depending on the size of the roast.
