Elaine's StoryI love to buy those long, pork loin roasts from Sams Club when they go on sale. I usually cut them up into three-one and a half to two pound roasts, so I get at least three meals out of it. This is a very easy and flavorful way to make these wonderful pork loin roasts. I don't use a lot of herbs and spices, because my husband doesn't tolerate them well, but this is very, very delcious and it doesn't need a lot of extra spices. Just thicken the broth with a little cornstarch to make gravy and you have a great meal, all done in the crock pot. Hope y'all enjoy!

6 to 8 slice
bacon, uncooked (more or less, depending on size of bacon slices)
salt and pepper to taste
1Wash pork roast and pat dry. Add salt and pepper to taste. Wrap pork roast in uncooked bacon slices, securing underneath the roast. Cook in crockpot on low heat for about 5 to 6 hours or until bacon is cooked and roast is tender. Transfer to serving platter.
2Pour broth into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Thicken using about 2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with enough milk to make a pourable paste. Add cornstarch mixture to broth a little at a time, whisking constantly. If mixture seems too thin, you may add a little more cornstarch. If too thick, pour in a little milk or water. Continue cooking and whisking until consistency is correct. You may also add salt and pepper to taste.
3Slice roast and serve with gravy.

This looks yummy! Do you put any water or anything in the crockpot with the roast?

I love the crock pot recipes. I have the same question, do you add any water?
It sounds great! Would love to try it.

Hey there Jen. No, I don't add water because there is enough broth that I don't need to. You can also add any spices that you like. My husband doesn't like most spices, so I don't add them. I always thought that a few sliced apples would be good in this dish, but he doesn't like that, either. Hope this helps. :)
