Ingredients

  • 1
    pork boneless loin roast (3 1/2 lb)
  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/2
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    medium onion, sliced
  • 3
    cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1
    cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton) or water

Steps

  • 1
    Trim excess fat from pork. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Place onion and garlic in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. Place pork on onion and garlic. Pour broth over pork.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until pork is tender. Reserve 1 cup cooking liquid.
  • 4
    Serve pork now, or remove pork from slow cooker and cool slightly. Shred warm pork, using 2 forks.
  • 5
    Place 2 cups shredded pork in each refrigerator or freezer container. Add 1/2 cup reserved cooking liquid to each container. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 days or freeze up to 4 months. To thaw frozen pork, place container in refrigerator about 8 hours.

  • Bake some sweet potatoes to the pork roast. To serve, cut an X on top of each potato and squeeze it open. Drizzle with maple syrup, and sprinkle with chopped toasted pecans. Serve with broccoli spears to make a meal your family will request often.
  • You'll want to make Garlic Pork Roast just to shred and keep in the freezer. Shredded pork can be used for taco, enchilada and burrito fillings.
