Crockpot Pork Roast and Gravy

Crockpot Pork Roast and Gravy

Ok so the weather has gotten a little cooler, and now that we've put the gumbo pot away, we wanted something a little more "stick to your ribs". We had a ton of cleaning and errands to do today, plus my oven being out of commission, it was the perfect day to bust out the Crock-Pot. One of the easiest meals you'll ever make. 

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 - 5 to 6 pound pork picnic roast
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 1 bell pepper - chopped
  • 5 to 6 cloves of garlic - minced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of Cajun Seasoning like Slap Ya Mama
  • 2 cups of water
  • Cooked rice for serving

Once all of your veggies are chopped, add them to your Crock-pot.

If your roast has a fat cap score it in a criss cross pattern. It helps the fat cook down into the rest of the meat. Or you can remove it if you prefer.  

Next add the roast and 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning.  

Add about 2 cups of water. 

Set your Crock-Pot on high and let it cook for 4 to 6 hours. Once cooked, taste and add more seasoning if needed.
