  • 4 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.

Expert Tips

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.
