Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Any day is a good day for a slow cooker recipe, but Saturday is my favorite day to get the crock pot out and cook up something delicious. This recipe for pork roast is as simple as a recipe can be. Put the roast in the pot and pour the seasoning over the top, and the job is done. Roasted vegetables complete the meal. Today I used small yellow potatoes, onions, parsnips, and sweet potatoes because that is what I had. Roasted broccoli and carrots are good, as well.

But, as those YouTube girls Hannah and Kaylee always say -- "First things first"-- Don't put anything in the crock pot until there is a slow cooker liner in place. If you forget to use a liner then there will be a greasy, messy crock to wash, and who has time for that? I don't, and you probably don't, either. Those slow cooker liners are on my list of Top 10 convenience items for the kitchen.
