In my humble opinion, there is no better time saver than cooking in a slow cooker. You just place all of the ingredients in and let the slow cooker do its magic.

As you have probably guessed by now, I love cooking meals that are simple and convenient. To me, long hours spent in the kitchen are reserved only for special times such as dinner parties, holidays, and the occasional Sunday dinner. During the week I like to make something that is easy and quick.

Recently I found a recipe to jazz up a pork roast that I could not wait to give a try because it involved soda. When it comes to cooking any roast I mainly cook my roast in a slow cooker. I love cooking my roast this way because it makes it super tender and moist. I also love cooking it this way because my family not only loves it but they can also eat on it all day.

However, I actually followed the recipe for the pioneer woman pulled pork exactly, except for the following changes.

  • I placed the onions in the crockpot first.
  • I seasoned my roast first and then I added it on top of the onions.
  • Then I added all of the other ingredients on top of the roast.
  • Cover the crockpot and cook for 6 to 7 hours (depending on roast size).

*Again the Original Recipe is by Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman)
