Love pork and sweet potatoes? Here's an easy way to get this favorite combo in a slow cooker meal.
boneless pork loin roast (3 1/2 lb)
tablespoon vegetable oil
cups 1-inch pieces peeled dark-orange sweet potatoes
medium onion, sliced
cloves garlic, peeled
cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
If pork roast comes in netting or is tied, remove netting or strings. Remove fat from pork. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper over pork. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides.
In 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, place sweet potatoes, onion and garlic. Place pork on vegetables. Pour broth over pork.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
You can use apple juice for the chicken broth.
The flavor of dark-orange sweet potatoes is preferred, but you can use whatever variety you like. Also, after browning the roast, use a small amount of chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Heat the broth in the skillet, and stir to loosen the browned bits of food on the bottom.
