Crockpot Pork Roast Recipe

We found a double pack pork picnic roast on sale at Winco this week. I have never cooked a picnic roast before, but I figured it couldn't be much different than a regular roast, so I picked it up and decided to experiment. The recipe turned out great and it's officially my first recipe of the new year.

pork picnic roast (you can substitute any pork roast. This one was just under 4lbs)
1 bell pepper sliced into strips
1 orange or 2 small mandarins/tangerines
1 apple peeled, cored and sliced (I prefer granny smith or golden delicious)
1 cup broth (I used chicken because that's what we had, but beef would be delicious)
2 cloves garlic


1. Season pork roast with pepper to taste

2. Slice a hole into roast and stuff with garlic clove. Repeat for each clove you're using.

3. Slice end off citrus fruit and squeeze juice over the roast
4. Place into crockpot

5. Add sliced apples and bell peppers

6. Add broth 


7. Cover and cooked on low for 6-7 hours depending on size of roast

8. After removing roast and bell peppers from crock pot, whisk broth and apples with cornstarch 
    (you can use flour instead) to thicken and create a gravy. The apples will mash into the gravy. 

9. Slice roast, cover with gravy and serve with cooked peppers.
