Pork Roast

Roasts are one of my favorite things to make because they are simple AND versatile. Serve this bad boy as your main course but be sure to shred what you don’t eat on night one and use it for another meal. Check out my other posts using this roast, especially my crock pot chili.

Flavorful, juicy, versatile!

  1. 1 large pork roast, boneless
  2. 1/2 C low sodium chicken stock
  3. 1 T coconut oil
  4. 1 T butter
  5. 1 yellow onion, chopped
  6. 4 or 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  7. 2 T Italian seasoning (or fresh herbs)
  8. 2 T salt (Himalayan is best!)
  9. 1 T black pepper (crushed is best!)
  10. 1 can chopped green chiles
  1. Turn on crock pot to low. On the stovetop, heat butter on high.
  2. Season roast all around and be sure to press it in. Be sure to wait to sear roast until it is room temperature.
  3. Add roast to HOT pan and sear on ALL sides (even the ends.) Once the entire roast is dark and crisp, add half of the onions and garlic with the coconut oil. Baste for a couple minutes.
  4. Add roast and veggies to crock pot. Top with remaining veggies, including the chiles. Pour chicken broth over meat.
  5. Cover, and cook on low for about 3 hours. Let cool before slicing.
  1. If you do not want to use the crock, cover the pan you used to sear it and bake for about 70 minutes (depending on size of roast.) Be sure to add another tablespoon of butter or oil.
  2. If you are using this recipe as step one for another recipe, be sure to shred the meat while it is still hot. Simply beat on high with a handheld mixture right in the crock pot!
  3. If you want REALLY tender meat, add a can of beer to the crock pot and omit the broth. I promise it won't taste like alcohol. 😉
Exercise Through Grief http://exercisethroughgrief.com/


I am a 30 year old California native who just moved back to the state after being away for 10 years. In that time, I've established a career that I love and spent the last 3 years completely invested in. I absolutely love teaching high school, but I have an overwhelming sense of regret that I let my love for my students and my desire to help them take away the time I could have spent with my mom and my husband. It is for this reason, plus my overwhelming desire for adventure, that I've asked my husband if we could move back to my home state. I'm coming back fulfilled and confident but completely broken as I've now lost both parents. I'm just trying to put back the pieces as I figure out how to honor both of them while truly being happy and moving forward. I'm essentially starting fresh, as a lifelong mourner. Each day is a tribute to them and to my marriage. I feel a rush of excitement and I know that though the change is HUGE, it is going to be incredible. My dream is to laugh every day, allow myself to grieve my losses, regain my relationship with God, and build a stronger relationship with my love. Cheers to new adventures!
