Sunday Pot Roast Recipe

With the help of a slow cooker, you can prepare a down-home dinner any day of the week, not just on Sundays. The roast turns out tender and savory every time. —Brandy Schaefer, Glen Carbon, Illinois

"This recipe did a great job making the roast so tender and I love when you can have an all in one meal that cooks in the slow cooker. However my husband and daughter did not like the caraway seed so I will not make this again, though I might adjust with different seasoning in the rub to come up with a flavor we all can like."

"I used fresh oregano and that was just too strong. I followed recipe for cutting potatoes, however they tasted gummy when cooked. Not sure why. Carrots were cooked fine though. Wasn't a favorite."

"This is wonderful!!!! Followed the recipe, but I did not make the gravy, though I'm sure that would be good, too. But I just sliced the pork, put it on the plate with the veggies, and spooned the juice over it. One of my new favorites!!!"

"All cooked well through. I didn't do the rub overnight as I had no time to do that. It was good, but it did lack some salt and some taste to it. Would not be my #1 recipe choice."

"I didn't do the rub overnight, because I didn't realize that was in the recipe. I don't know if it would have been more savory if I had. I thought this was still really good. Especially after I dumped a ton of salt on my individual serving. Hubby and child did the same and liked it. The pork came out super tender."

"My pork still has two hours to cook. I cut a slice and it is a little dry. why does john l939, hockeygmgp and sue zappa talk about cutting roast in half. I do not see that in the directions. with two hours to go and I hope it gets as tender as people say, because it is not there yet. will let you know. thanks, Sukie"

"This recipe is a definite "keeper", much like my own that I make, but I made this just the way it said. The family is not crazy about the caraway seeds, so I just left them out. I believe it is called "common horse sense" if a recipe calls for an ingredient that you know your family does not like, just leave it out. There, problem solves - if there is one. To each of you with positive input and the person that is "new to all of this", welcome aboard in learning the fine art of good old fashioned cooking. To me, cooking is a wonderful world."

"I made another pork roast recipe where I had to cut the roast in half. I believe it's to make sure the middle of the roast cooks thoroughly as undercooked pork can be dangerous to eat. Yes, use both halves of the roast! There's no such thing as a dumb question--even experienced cooks have questions! Good luck!"

"I'm just confused on why you have to cut the roast in half? To fit the pan? And the receipt just calls for half a roast? Sorry I'm so remedial, new to this. Cut lengthwise or just in half and use only one portion? Help!"

"I DO NOT LIKE PORK LOIN ROAST IN THE slow cooker. i make in the oven on bke at 350. I PUT VEGETABLES ON THE BOTTOM OF PAN CUT UP WIT SOME GARLIC POWDER,PEPPER, SALT, AND A LITTLE OIL. i put the roast on top of veg.

cut a few slits in meat and put in garlic clove.PUT WINE OVER MEAT WITH SEASONING AND OIL. you can oput on orange slices or other fruit it you want. COOK TO A LITTLE OVER 120 -130 UNTIL STILL PINK IN SIDE. medium rade and slice.."

"This is one way I have cooked pork loin for many years...minus the caraway seed and beef broth! There is plenty of moisture in the pork without added broth. I usually put my pork into my crock pot frozen...then add the seasonings...turn to high and begin cooking. I add the vegetables, and after it has cooked all day, I use vegetable broth and 1 to 2 TBSP cornstarch added to the drippings to make a thin gravy. I do not use the browning sauce...no need. This falls apart most of the time...very tender."

"First of all, to the person who says a pot roast has to be beef, I would say that the key words are "pot roast" meaning that, by definition, it implies any roast cooked in a pot (rather than an open pan). It actually originated years back when the hunk of meat got cooked slowly, in a covered pot, atop the stove. I only just learned to cook a pork loin using this method and it's absolutely wonderful (minus the caraway); however, I prepare it in a covered roasting pan and bake in the oven at 325. Served it to 8 guests a couple of weeks ago and I'm still hearing raves."
