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.

Pork Seasoning

  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 3/4 tsp oregano
  • 3/4 tsp thyme
  • 3/4 tsp sage
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  • Mix the soups and gravy mix together in the slow cooker.

  • Add the pork to the slow cooker along with the carrots and sliced onions. 
  • Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or on high for 5.

  • Additionally, 2 cans of cream of chicken may be used instead of cream of mushroom, (or vice versa).
  • My slow cooker is a 6 quart and works well for this recipe.
  • I add 2 cups of frozen green beans for the remaining 30 minutes of cooking.

  1. It’s a TEN! Served over garlic biscuits. Thank you! 

  2. If I was going to cook this in instant pot and it has a bone in it how long do I need ro cok it for

  3. Hi! Hoping to try your recipe tonight as it sounds amazing! I have a pork butt roast in looking to use. Should I adjust the times and keep it together or split it in half as I have 2 crockpots? Thanks!

    • Hi Joshua, you would probably want to utilize your 2 crock pots, split the meat in half, and double the other ingredients… essentially making this recipe twice, one in each crock pot 🙂

  4. Can I use herbs of provence

  5. Could I add potatoes to this and let it cook all together?

  6. Savory. I did a Boston butt, and it worked great.

  7. I made this recipe with pork roast and it turned out excellent!!! Was wondering if I could use pork chops, but cut down the cooking time?

    • Hi Vicki! I’m so happy to hear that you loved it! 🙂 You can definitely make this with pork chops as well. Thin boneless pork chops will need 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Thick, bone-in pork chops will need 7-8 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high. I also have this recipe for Pork Chops in Gravy (w/ crock pot instructions) or Crock Pot Pork Chops. Enjoy!

  8. Did you add a cup of water ?  Thx!

  9. I have made this several times and it is delicious. I love the combination of spices that you put on to theroast itself. Very delicious.

  10. This was great but I didn’t cook the meat in the soups..way too much pork fat from that.  I returned the shredded meat and added the soups to the cleaned instant pot after removing the fat and cooked about 4 min on high. Served over rice with a side salad.
