    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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
