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 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.

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.

  • I add 2 cups of frozen green beans for the remaining 30 minutes of cooking.

  1. Hi there….would using a leaner cut like a boneless pork loin roast work fir this recipe?

  2. This was AMAZING,So easy and the gravy was so good,next time my family said double the gravy and I will..YUM!!! 🙂 a keeper for sure..10 stars we give 🙂

  3. Can you put the spices on the meat the night before to sit. Or should you do it before you put it in the crockpot?

  4. Oh, sorry. For some reason I didn’t see that this was cooked in a crock pot. Definitely going to try on Sunday.

  5. I was not able to get a roast with the bone in but did get one and it is in the oven as I write this. Smells so good already.

  6. It is years since I had a pork roast and this one sounds so good. I am going out t o buy the roast now and hope I can find one with the bone in as that adds so much to the flavour.

  7. I love roasts and am excited to try this! I’m wondering if I can just put potatoes right in the crock? When I do roasts in the oven I normally put carrots and potatoes right in with the roast.

  8. I am planning on trying this tonight, but I have a fussy hubby… does not like spices, or onions,  so my question is can I just use the soup and gravy mix with basic seasoning and hope for the best. Also, should I add some liquid since I will be putting potatoes in with the roast. Thank you

    • Hi Lynn, I apologize for not being able to get back to you yesterday, how did you do? I would have said that you should be fine with the basic seasoning and that there should be sufficient liquid for the potatoes as well. I hope you enjoy it! -Stephanie

  9. This was dinner last night. My husband is not generous with words like “this is really good” and such, but he said that several times during dinner. So simple and a husband who says he won’t mind eating left overs (which he never does) puts this on my Favorites board. Thanks you.

    • Hey Nikki!! Woooo, sounds like a win to me! I swear my husband is the exact same way, all the way around! Especially about leftovers, haha! High five, glad we have a winner! Thanks so much for taking the time to come back here and leave these kind words! -Stephanie

  10. I don’t have a crock pot, could I make this in a Dutch oven? 

    • Hi Destani, you could put this in a large dutch oven, cover it, and bake at 275-300 for 4-5 hours, or until it’s fall-apart tender. The internal temperature should be 145 degrees.
