Delicious pork roast recipe with vegetables - made stress-free for dinner in a slow cooker.
2- to 2 1/2-pound pork boneless loin roast
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
cloves garlic, finely chopped
package (6 ounces) fresh baby portabella mushrooms, chopped
package (9 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain
cup soft bread crumbs (1 slice bread)
cup grated Parmesan cheese
To cut pork roast so that it can be filled and rolled, cut horizontally down length of pork about 1/2 inch from top of pork to within 3/4 inch of opposite side; open flat. Turn pork so you can cut other side. Repeat with other side of pork, cutting from the inside edge to the outer edge; open flat. If pork is thicker than 3/4 inch, cover pork with plastic wrap and pound until about 3/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic and mushrooms in oil, stirring frequently, until liquid has evaporated. Stir in spinach, bread crumbs and cheese.
Spread mushroom mixture on inside surfaces of pork. Roll up pork; tie with kitchen twine. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil until brown on all sides. Place pork in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with salt.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 7 hours or until pork is tender.
Cut horizontally down the length of the pork roast; open flat.
Cut horizontally from inside edge to outer edge; open flat.
If you don't have time to let the spinach thaw in the refrigerator, try running the package under cold water for a few minutes. Or thaw it in the microwave.
Tired of the same old boiled or baked potatoes? For a change, try serving German spaetzle instead. Look for spaetzle in the frozen foods section of your supermarket.
