Elaine's Story

I 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!

Ingredients

1 1/2 to 2 lb
pork loin roast
6 to 8 slice
bacon, uncooked (more or less, depending on size of bacon slices)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash 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.
2
Pour 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.
3
Slice roast and serve with gravy.

Hey there Tracy. I've never tried cooking veggies with it, but I'm sure that you probably could, using the same method as you would use for any other type of roast. I usually make gravy out of the broth and serve it over mashed potatoes. I hope you all enjoy it! :)
