Pork Roast, Gravy & Mashed Taters

Diane Hopson Smith


A pork roast and a few seasonings, slow cooked and then served over mashed potatoes and gravy made from the drippings. What's not to like! Comfort food at best!!

I didn't have dry onion soup mix so I made my own. Most cooks will have the needed ingredients in their pantry.
