Dad’s Slow Cooker Pork Loin Roast

I will admit I do love cooking in a crock pot, but there are certain steps I take to make sure the end product isn’t dried out and tasteless. For instance, if I am making a beef or pork dish, the meat is seared in a screaming hot skillet in order to lock in the juices. Today I prepared a pork loin roast and it is by far one of my all time favorite dishes.

INGREDIENTS


3 – 4 LB. CENTER CUT BONELESS PORK LOIN ROAST


VEGETABLE OIL


3 CUPS OF WATER


2 LARGE ONIONS


2 CLOVES OF GARLIC (MINCED)


MCCORMICK’S GRILL MATES PORK RUB


1 CAN CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP


14.5 OUNCE CAN OF YELLOW WAXED BEANS (DRAINED)


15 OUNCE CAN OF POTATOES (DRAINED)


4 OUNCE CAN OF WHOLE MUSHROOMS (DRAINED)

***THIS RECIPE WAS DESIGNED FOR EASE AND QUICKNESS. IF YOUR PREFERENCE IS THE USE OF FRESH VEGETABLES, THEN BY ALL MEANS YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE 2 LARGE POTATOES, CUBED, FRESH BUTTON MUSHROOMS AND FROZEN OR FRESH GREEN BEANS.***


INSTRUCTIONS


ROUGH CUT ONIONS AND PLACE IN BOTTOM OF SLOW COOKER. ADD DRAINED POTATOES, MUSHROOMS, AND YELLOW WAXED BEANS AND MIX TOGETHER. CUT SLITS AND STUFF PORK LOIN WITH GARLIC. PLACE ENOUGH OIL IN THE SKILLET TO JUST COVER THE BOTTOM AND TURN HEAT TO HIGH. I SEASON THE OIL WITH GARLIC PIECES AND THAT WAY WHEN THEY START SIZZLING YOU KNOW THE OIL IS HOT. REMOVE GARLIC FROM THE PAN AND DISCARD. WHILE THE OIL IS HEATING RUB THE ENTIRE ROAST WITH MCCORMACK’S GRILL MATES. SEAR ALL SIDES OF THE PORK LOIN AND PLACE IN SLOW COOKER WHEN DONE. ADD CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP AROUND THE ROAST AND POUR IN 3 CUPS OF WATER. BECAUSE THERE IS LITTLE TO NO FAT ON A PORK LOIN I ALSO DRIZZLE SOME OF THE PAN DRIPPINGS ON TOP. COVER AND COOK FOR 9 HOURS.


WHEN READY TO SERVE, REMOVE STRING FROM ROAST AND PLACE VEGETABLES AROUND THE MEAT ON A SERVING PLATTER. MAKE GOOD USE OF THE SAVORY JUICES AND SERVE WITH A SIDE DISH OF EXTRA WIDE EGG NOODLES.

This looks very delicious. I learned something new, searing the meat before placing it in the cooker. Thank you for a great new recipe...

Oh man, this looks fantastic! I always tell myself I need to use our crock pot more often. Looking at Hubs like this has me even more convinced!

@ Deborah Brooks - Thank you for dropping into my kitchen and for your comment. I can't imagine cooking without my crock pot. I probably use the slow cooker twice per week.

@ Violet Newberg...I appreciate you taking time out of your day to read and comment on my recipe. I too was looking for different ways to prepare a pork roast and this is what I ended up with.

Politically we may be complete opposites, but gastronomically we seem to share a love for full flavored and exquisitely delicious home creations.

This recipe is fantastic. I prepared this for dinner last night and received praises all around from my guests. I, of course, conveyed due credit to you. They browsed through your other recipes and it seems that they will be eager to try out your unique scallion stuffed meat loaf recipe next.

Thank you again and my compliments for a great recipe.

@ Marisaupa - I am thrilled that you not only read and commented on my recipe, but that you actually enjoyed serving the dish. Soon our zucchini and squash will be ready for harvesting and when that happens I will have to do a hub on my take on zucchini, squash, sweet onion and pork chops, served in a tomato sauce.

Your remark about our political positions gave me a chuckle. It reminded me of the War of 1812 on the northern shores of Lake Ontario. The winter months are so beastly cold and snowy that during this time both sides were forced to call a truce simply to survive. We all get too polarized in our political positions and we forget that we are brothers and sisters and sharing a good meal will at least unite us around the dinner table.

@ Movie Master - I owe you and three other Hubbers an apology for not replying back to your comments sooner. I forgot about checking on this Hub and am so embarrassed. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope you give this recipe a try.

@ Michael J Rapp - Thank you for reading and commenting. I love my slow cooker and usually use it at least once per week. For some reason, simple ingredients can turn the mundane into awesome tasting food.

@ JaneA - I appreciate you reading and replying to this recipe. I agree with you about using fresh vegetables rather than canned...either will work just fine. If time is a factor I find it easier to open cans, drain and dump into the slow cooker, but you are correct...fresh is better.

@ ImKarn23 - Oh dear, how on earth did I miss your response? Not to blow my own horn Ms. L., but I do all of the cooking, laundry, cleaning, gardening, yard work, bill paying, home repairs and painting. All I need now is a French Maid outfit.

Yes, a mighty fine looking roll of pork you've captured in this here hub. Beautifully cooked and presented. I like the way you've written everything in bold type - just the thing for kitchen novices like myself. My appetite is definitely whetted after seeing this creation.

Voted and shared.

Mouthwatering... I'd like to have this pork loin roast with some bottles of beer to go with. Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)

@ iguidenetwork - Oh yes...an ice cold beverage would go nicely with this recipe. Many times I will take the leftover roast and shred it in barbeque sauce, then serve it on hamburger buns with coleslaw and homemade macaroni salad.

What is wax beans? It looks like pasta


pagesvoice profile image

pagesvoice 22 months ago from New York/Pennsylvania border Author

Yellow waxed beans don't have any wax on them. They are part of the family of green string beans and for whatever the reason, are simply referred to as yellow waxed beans.

This looks great. I love using my slow cooker, too, and make this pork loin roast the same way. I've never tried it with the wax beans and potatoes, so this is an interesting addition to the recipe. Glad you shared this.

Pinned to my Favorite Recipes board.

Thank you for stopping in and reading my Hub. Pork tenderloins are cheap and lean, but can be made to be so flavorful. I just bought another tenderloin yesterday and instead of the slow cooker, this one I will give a pork rub to, sear in a cast iron skillet, rough chop onions around it, add a little water and finish it in the skillet in a 350 degree oven. It's a never fail food item.

Slow cook 9 hours on low?

pagesvoice 11 months ago from New York/Pennsylvania border Author

Thank you for stopping by and reading my recipe. I cook on low for 8.5 to 9 hours and the roast will fall apart.
