Crockpot Pork Roast
Everyone needs a classic go-to roast recipe, so today I wanted to share my Crockpot Pork Roast recipe. Roasts are perfect for company because they're low maintenance and pretty hard to mess up.
This Crockpot Pork Roast stays super tender because of all of the gravy that it's cooked in. The vinegar and soy sauce give this Crockpot Pork Roast a little extra zing, which I love. Adjust the hot sauce to your liking. I just put in the 1 teaspoon because my three kiddos are adamantly opposed to all things spicy (We're working on that one, for sure!)
This Crockpot Pork Roast recipe also called for boneless pork loin roast. I have been known to sub it for pork butt, because I can usually get a giant 30 pound one for $20 if I watch for sales (which I then cut into 4-5 smaller portions and freeze). The pork butt is obviously a little bit more fatty, but the fat also keeps it quite a bit more moist and tender, so I'm okay with the trade-off and it's something to consider if you're on a budget.

We loved this! So easy to make and super yummy! I was a little worried that the kiddos maybe wouldn't like it because of the hot sauce, but we just didn't give them the brothy stuff and they loved it. And if you need an idea of what to do with the leftover marinade/onion mixture, it is delicious with green beans.
Thanks for the great recipe. I'll definitely be making it again!
