|Slow cooked pork roast in an incredibly tasty gravy, using Coca-Cola Classic and an envelope of onion soup mix. Great for chicken and beef roasts as well!|

|Slow Cooker Coke Pulled Pork, often called Three Ingredient Pulled Pork, because it's typically made with a pork roast, barbecue sauce and most often, either Coca-Cola, Dr Pepper or root beer.|
Slow Cooker Coke Pulled PorkI know, I know, it's supposed to be Fall, well... according to the calendar at least, that is. Although we got another nice blast of slightly cooler air again this week here in the Deep South, blink and we're right back into mid to upper-80 degree temps during the days and, well... it's still hurricane season for us anyway. It's pretty much still summer here, far as we're concerned. The nice parts of summer though, that we love so much here - beautiful blue, sunny skies and warm temperatures - but with that highly coveted lower humidity. Finally come out of the house without melting, nice to be outdoors weather!

|Pork roast, slow cooked in the crockpot and simply seasoned with garlic salt, freshly cracked black pepper, Cajun seasoning, thyme and sage and topped with cream of mushroom soup.|
Slow Cooker Pork Roast with VegetablesWhile slow braised beef roast would be my husband's top favorite roast, a pork roast rules in my eyes, and the slow cooker is a great vehicle for it for sure. Though most people think of the cut only for smoking or slow cooking for pulled pork sandwiches, I love a good pork shoulder or Boston butt prepared as a roast. This preparation is also great with a leaner pork loin however.

|Transform a pork shoulder into this simple but amazingly delicious dish with a quick sear, simple seasonings, lightly caramelized onions and a simple roux. Fantastic.|
Smothered Pork Roast with RiceThis Smothered Pork Roast recipe is as simplistic as they come. A seared pork roast, seasoned with salt and pepper, smothered in a gorgeous garlic, rosemary and thyme infused gravy, and braised in a covered Dutch oven, low and slow. It is a heavenly way to utilize a cut of pork that is most often reserved for pulled pork sandwiches. The fragrance of it will surely bring you back to grandma's kitchen and the flavor is just simply pork perfection.
The original recipe calls for a boneless pork butt or shoulder, but I could only find a 7 pound bone-in pork shoulder, and even that just barely squeezed into my Dutch oven. The downside to using the bone-in roast is that there is less meat, but it was enough for the two of us.

Sage Pork Roast with Apple Pan SauceThis is my second pork roast posted - the first one has an amazing spicy and sweet onion sauce and has been my favorite way of doing pork roast for years. This one, is a simple roasted pork, crusted with a layer of herbs and seasonings, resting in a hot tub of apple juice that makes one mighty fine pan sauce and gravy. One of the seasonings that I used is Bacon Salt, one of many bacon flavored products from J&D Foods, but any all purpose seasoning will work fine too.
