I’m such a sucker for sales. This three-pound pork shoulder was on sale at the store, and I just had to buy it. That pretty much meant that me, my husband, and my two-year-old would each need to eat a pound of pork. 🤔

…Sounds reasonable, right?  Luckily, you can freeze leftovers. But first, the ingredients for this recipe:

Ingredients for Crock Pot Pork Roast

  • Pork Shoulder (Boston Butt is the best cut)
  • Cream of Chicken Soup
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Pork Gravy Mix
  • Yellow Onion
  • Carrots

Pork Seasoning (My Grandmother’s Recipe!)

  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Nutmeg
  • Pepper

Freezing Cooked Pork

You can freeze cooked pork for 2-3 months. Using it later for soups and stews is a great way to avoid wasting it.

I am all about making the most out of a dollar, so this ended up being a remarkable deal.Shredded pork topped with parsley and gravy with a fork in it, with potatoes, carrots, and green beans in the background.

Best Cuts of Pork for Slow Cooking

-Pork shoulders are the best for slow cooking. They have a higher fat content that breaks down during the cooking process, leaving you with an incredibly tender, melt-in-your-mouth consistency.

The Pork belly and cheek also work well in the slow cooker.

-If you can’t find a whole pork shoulder at the grocery store, a Boston Butt is the next best choice, which is half of the shoulder. The other half of the shoulder is called the picnic shoulder.

How Long do you Cook Pork in the Slow Cooker

-A 3 lb. pork shoulder takes approximately 5 hours to cook on high, and about 8 hours on low. The pork is done when it can fall apart with just the touch of a fork.

My Favorite Crock Pot

This is the Crock Pot that I have, I love that you can sear meat right on the stove-top with it.

It also automatically switches to warm once the cooking time is up, which is hugely convenient when you’re out of the house.

Recipe Notes
  • You can also use a packet of onion soup mix instead of pork gravy mix. Additionally, 2 cans of cream of chicken may be used instead of cream of mushroom.
  • My slow cooker is a 6 quart and works well for this recipe.
  • Slow Cookers all heat different so cooking times may need to be adjusted accordingly.
  • I added 2 cups of frozen green beans in a foil packet for the remaining 30 minutes of cooking.
