Crock Pot Pork Roast with Vegetables and Gravy (Renewed)

Crock Pot Pork Roast with Vegetables and Gravy (Renewed)
  • Pinterest

Man, I love a good Pork roast. Pork is a nice sweet meat, after all and well…you know how I love sweet. It’s a problem, if the truth were to be told.

This particular Pork Roast recipe has been living in my archives for more than four years now. The pictures that were originally posted with it are down right hideous. Shockingly fierce, is what I am telling you here. It was in need of a makeover. Not the recipe (which is absolutely heavenly). Just the pictures. And so I have made this dreamy roast again (twist my arm, why don’t you) and retaken the photos for you all, complete with a full pictorial tutorial.

What does this Pork Roast of Wonder have to offer you? Tender strips of flavorful meat, drizzled with a gravy that is so divine I think I could drink it for breakfast and be happy from my head to my toes. The taste is by no means overly sweet, rather it has a kind of smokey, sweet, garlic brown sugar feel to it. It’s a family favorite.

Make it baby. Make it and love it!

Let me show you how to make it happen!

IMG_2300_edited-1

1. Grab a Pork Sirloin Tip Roast. I like to buy these that come in a package of four from Costco. They always seem to cook up so well and are easy to shred.

IMG_2303_edited-1

2. Heat a large skillet up over medium high heat. Pour 3 tablespoons of olive oil into the pan. Sprinkle the pork generously with salt and pepper on the top and bottom. Carefully place it in the pan and allow it to get a nice golden brown sear on both sides.

3. While your pork is in the searing pan, peel and chop 5-6 russet potatoes and one onion. You want them to be uniform in size, so they cook evenly.

IMG_2305_edited-1

4. Spray a 3-4 quart crock pot with cooking spray. Place the seared pork in the pot and pour 3 cups mini carrots around the roast.

Layer the potatoes and onions on top.

IMG_2307_edited-1

5. Chop 1 tablespoon of garlic and place it in a small mixing bowl.

IMG_2309_edited-1

Add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette, 1/2 cup water…

IMG_2310_edited-1

and 1/2 cup brown sugar.

IMG_2311_edited-1

Whisk the ingredients around making sure the brown sugar gets dissolved, then pour it all over the top of the potatoes and roast.

IMG_2312_edited-1

Hit the potatoes with a bit of salt and pepper.
6. Cover the crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours. Or, if you know your crock pot cooks quickly I would suggest cooking just the meat and the sauce together on low for 4 hours, then adding the vegetables and cooking on high for an additional 2 hours.

IMG_2314_edited-1

7. When the pork has cooked through (should be a temperature of 160 degrees), carefully pour the juices from the crock pot into a medium-sized sauce pan. Turn the crock pot off and let the meat rest inside (with the lid on) for 5-10 minutes before you serve it.

IMG_2315_edited-1

8. To the sauce pan add 2 packages of Pork gravy mix, 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup water and 1 can cream of mushroom soup (undiluted). Whisk it together to combine.
9. Get the pan onto the stove top and heat the mixture to boiling over medium high heat, stirring occasionally.

Serve the roast and vegetables with gravy drizzled over the top. Enjoy!

    USDA has updated their suggestions – Pork chops and roast only need to be cooked to an internal temp of 145 degrees. Ground pork still needs to be cooked to 160 degrees.
    Restaurants have been doing this for years.

    I have always hated cooking pork because no matter how I cook it, it cooks tough. How does this one turn out?

      This has been my “Go To” pork roast recipe since I found it in 12/2014.

      The way I “check” it is by putting a fork into the meat after 4 hours. Generally it falls apart at that time, however, sometimes it has to go another 45 mins-1 hour.

      Leftovers are the best! Plus, our picky 8 year old LOVES it. Enjoy!

    Went to Kroger looking for a sirloin tip roast. Butcher said he had never heard of one. Perhaps called something else as well.

    okay, might be a silly question, is a T tbs, or tsp? lol…. and do you think Kraft balsamic vingerette is fine ?

      Kassandra,
      T stands for tablespoon. :) I have used Kraft Balsamic Vinaigrette and it works out great. Good luck to you!

    I just made this and it turned out GREAT! I used regular balsamic vinegar (I skimmed and missed the vinaigrette part). I also love adding juice or soda to meats to tenderize them, so I put one small apple in the blender with just a little water, and smothered the pork with the apple puree before adding the vegetables. Sooo good :)

    would you make it the same way if you were to leave the vegetables out? Do you need to lessen the time?

    Snow day today and chose this for my crock pot recipe. It already smells awesome! Serving it with steamed carrots and mashed potatoes (as well as roasted). Cannot wait to make the gravy. I will update later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks so much for the post!!

    I’m wondering the same thing as Lyndsey….don’t like the cream of mushroom soup. Do you think the gravy would still turn out without it? Maybe it just wouldn’t be as thick?

      Hi Tammie,
      You can leave the cream of mushroom soup out. I actually made it just yesterday and opted to make it without it and it still turned out great. Best of luck!

    I made this in the oven, with a balsamic vinaigrette I made myself. It took about an hour at 350 degrees. I would have made it in the crock pot but I didn’t have time to wait for it. I didn’t have cream of mushroom soup or pork gravy mix packets so I didn’t use them, but the gravy turned out delicious with chicken bouillon, extra water and milk, and cornstarch as the thickener. I would definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe. :)

    I checked my pantry, and find that I have all of the ingredients necessary to prepare your wonderfully sounding crock pot dish. As a retired chef, former owner of two restaurants, and two catering businesses, I have only recently discovered the fun of crock pot cooking. Now I am always on-line, looking for more fun meals to prepare. I am going to give your pork roast a try as tonight’s dish for the family. I am departing from your recipe by substituting the carrots and potatoes for fresh brussel sprouts and cauliflower. I feel like the combination of the liquid ingredients, found in your recipe, coupled with my veggie swap, might work equally well. My only reason for making the veggie changes is, I would like to get my family to eat MORE above-ground veggies, and fewer below-ground veggies. Here’s hoping that my substitutions work equally well, and that they compliment your original recipe. My family is a bunch of very tough food critics – seriously spoiled “foodies”. They never want to eat out. I just hope I am doing right by your recipe. It sounds wonderful “as-is”. Tonight’s debut will tell.

    Dinner post script. I made the dish as stated in my earlier comment from today. The meal was table ready in about 4 1/2 hours, with the crock pot set on “high”. My wife hardly comments on my meals, unless she absolutely hates what I prepare. She said she loved the meal, complete with the substituted brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Other comments at the table were mixed. On the veggie substitution, it seemed that the people who didn’t ordinarily care for brussel sprouts or cauliflower found themselves liking this recipe change. However, the lovers of brussel sprouts and cauliflower seemed less enthusiastic, and would have preferred that I left the recipe “as-is”, with carrots and potaotes. Our chief food critic in the house is amazing. He sat there, tasted the meat, and commented as follows; “Hmm. It tastes sweet. Didn’t expect that. But I like it. I also detect a distinct back taste of vinegar. There is salad dressing in this recipe.” Overall, my harshest critic loved the meal. But it was ageeed by all at the table that we should re-try, but with the carrots and potatoes next time.

    Hi Jamie,

    I was wondering if I could use this recipe and set my slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours instead of high for 4-5 hours? I was hoping to be able to make this delicious looking recipe before work and have dinner waiting for me when I got home!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Asagi,
      The meat will work well if you cook it that long on a low setting, but the vegetables will get a bit mushy.
      Hope this helps!

    First let me just say that I’m a huge fan… there isn’t a recipe of yours I’ve tried that I haven’t adored! Complete success with every single one! That being said…this one is probably my absolute favorite! I changed it up a little bit since I work all day and that would be way too long for the veggies to cook. I do the pork in the slow cooker and serve it with oven roasted vegetables (cabbage, potatoes, onions, and carrots). The gravy with the veggies is ahhhhmazing! Just wanted to say thanks so much for all the fabulous recipes! Much love from a busy mom in Ohio!
