Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

4 lb loin end pork roast

salt and pepper to taste
1 garlic clove, sliced
2 medium onions, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 whole clove
1 cup hot water
2 tbsp soy sauce

Rub the meat with the salt and pepper.  Make small slits in the meat and poke the garlic slices into the slits.  Place roast on broiler pan and broil 20 minutes to remove excess fat.

Place half the onion slices on the bottom of the slow cooker or crockpot.  Add the browned roast, remaining onion, and all remaining ingredients.  Cover cooker and cook on high setting for 1 hour.  Reduce the heat to low and cook approximately 10 hours.

Remove the roast from the cooker to a serving platter.

Make a gravy by blending 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water until smooth.  Set cooker temperature on high and pour the cornstarch mixture into the cooker liquid.  Stir well to keep from lumping and allow to come to a boil.  Boil about 15 minutes or until thickened.
