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.

  • 3/4 tsp sage

  1. This was the best Pork Roast recipe I have tryed.My husband loved it and wants me to keep useing this one.He loved the gravy and the tender meat and the tender carrots,so this will be ours from now on.I used Lipton Onion Soup mix with the Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom.I will be sharing this one with family.Thank You

    • I’m so happy to hear such great comments Cindy, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!😍 I love cooking pork in the crock pot. So many people struggle with drying out their pork and this keeps it moist and tender.

  2. Absolutely the BEST roast I’ve ever done in a crock pot!!!! Easy and simple. Instead of the gravy package I replaced it with dry onion soup mix and made cream of chicken soup from scratch. Oh, oh, OH so delicious!!!!!!

    • That makes me so happy to hear Sam! I’m extra proud of this one because I think it’s one of my bests. Thanks so much for the great comments and for taking the time to leave a review!😍

  3. This was absolutely the best pork roast recipe I have ever tried and believe me I have tried and failed miserably with pork roasts that come out flavorless and dry. The gravy is so good and it is nice to have recipes that are easy and use ingredients that I usually have on hand. Some of the recipes I’ve seen make me feel like I need to go to chef school just to follow them! I am probably the only person on earth without a crockpot so I made this exactly as written but I put everything is a dutch oven and put it in the oven at 300 degrees for 4 hours. It was perfect, fell apart with the touch of the fork! I thank you and my hubby thanks you too! He is the poor soul who has had to endure many pork roasts that just didn’t turn out worth a hoot.

    • I’m so happy you enjoyed this Shari! It’s great to hear you were able to pull it off in the Dutch oven, great job!😍 My husband isn’t usually a fan of pork and he loves this recipe. Thanks so much for the great review!

  4. I love your recipes. Everyone of your recipes I have prepared, my family has loved. I’m single now but still make the full recipe and I freeze the meat into serving sizes. Then after work I unthaw the meat and prepare the vegetable and potato. I have a great meal with very little cooking.

    • Thanks so much for your support Kate! I love that you do the same thing I do, freeze into serving sizes. I reheat so many of my recipes for a yummy lunch. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!😍

  5. I can’t get your video to work, but I am using an ipad and I don’t know if that is the problem. However, do I add the carrots and onions in the bottom of the crockpot, then the roast or put them on top of the roast? Thanks for your help. 

    • That’s strange, I’m not sure why the video isn’t working! Hmmmm. It should work just fine on an ipad. I’ll look into that! But you can put the onions and carrots right on top of the roast! 🙂 Or around it! Enjoy! -Stephanie

  6. So easy to make and my family loves this recipe. I‘be already made more than several times. I liked more vegetables in them because it gets a bit more gravy at the end of the cooking. Love this recipe. 

  7. I would like to try this recipe but only have a pork loin. Would that work?

    • Hi Amy! That would work, it’s a leaner cut of meat so slow cooking is actually ideal, but it won’t need as much slow cooking time as a pork shoulder would. 4-5 hours on low should do it, longer than that and it could become tough. As long as the internal temperature is 145 degrees, you’re good to serve!

  8. I converted this recipe to the instant pot. One of the new Walker home staples!

  9. Can’t wait to try this.  Just put it in the slow cooker.  I didn’t have the gravy so I’m trying powder ranch packer.  And I didn’t have nutmeg 😬

  10. Hi there, wanted to ask how much much water to add for each sachet of soup. Thanks a lot
