Doesn't just the name of this recipe sound delicious? I found it over on Pinterest (have I mentioned that I love that place lately?), and made a quick run to Publix this morning to grab the pork roast & pop it in Mrs. Potts. Then I left her all alone to do the cooking today, and let me tell you . . . she did a fantastic job! 🙂
Do be careful not to over-cook your roast. . . I highly recommend getting a meat thermometer if you use your crockpot regularly, because (at least from my experience), newer crockpots tend to cook much more quickly than older models once did. This recipe recommends that you cook the roast for 6-7 hours on low, however mine was done at just a little over 5 hours on low. So, while I love leaving my slow cooker to do the work, you'll still need to watch to make sure it doesn't cook too long! We loved this recipe, and will definitely be making it again soon.
