Delight your family with a hearty, one-dish dinner featuring pork and potatoes in a savory gravy.
pound medium red potatoes, cut into fourths
cup baby-cut carrots
3-pound pork boneless loin roast
tablespoons Dijon mustard
tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, crumbled
teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-ounce carton)
Arrange potatoes and carrots around outer edge in 4- to 6-quart slow cooker.
If pork roast comes in netting or is tied, do not remove. Mix mustard, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper in small bowl; spread evenly over pork. Place pork in slow cooker (it will overlap vegetables slightly). Sprinkle onion over pork. Pour broth evenly over pork and vegetables.
Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours.
Remove pork and vegetables from cooker, using slotted spoon. Place pork on cutting board; remove netting or strings. Slice pork. To serve, spoon juices from cooker over pork and vegetables.
If your red potatoes are small, cut them in half rather than fourths so they won’t overcook.
Crusty French bread and a mixed-greens salad tossed with a fruity vinaigrette dressing transform this one-dish meal into a special-occasion meal.
To make gravy from the au jus, spoon the pork juices into a saucepan. Shake 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a tightly covered container until smooth. Stir it into the pork juices, and heat until the gravy thickens.
