Oven Temp: 375
- 3-4 potatoes - cubed
- Small bag carrots - small precut
- 1/2 bottle white wine
- 1 package leek and potato soup mix
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- Small package mushrooms - sliced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Small bone-in pork roast
Place cubed potatoes and carrots in slow cooker, pour 1 cup of wine, add garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Place pork roast (fat side up) on top of potatoes and carrots. Pour some wine over the roast. In a small bowl, pour soup mix, add the garlic and white wine - just enough to make a watery paste and pour or spoon over pork roast, add salt and pepper to taste. Add mushrooms 15-20 minutes before serving.
Cooking times for each slow cooker can be different - I put mine on 8-hour setting, but the meat is done in 6 hours. Sometimes the potatoes, if cut too large, will take longer; therefore, depending on the size of the roast, you can microwave it for 5 minutes before putting in the slow cooker. At the bottom of the cooker is a nice au jus to spoon over roast when serving. Any other vegetables such as red peppers can make a great addition to the meal.
