SLOW-COOKED PORK ROAST with GRAVY

I was craving a roast, but beef is so expensive these days! I decided to try something different with a pork roast from the freezer. I love a good roast that makes its own gravy. I created this recipe by tinkering with my slow-cooked mushroom and garlic beef pot roast recipe. I swapped pork for beef, white wine for red and adjusted the seasonings a bit. It is really delicious and will be a regular on our dinner table from now on! (P.S.) Add some fresh sliced mushrooms to the slow-cooker, if desired. Yum!
