The easiest pork recipe is to lightly salt and pepper a pork roast and then cook it in a slow cooker for seven hours on low. For a complete meal, 4 to 6 washed and peeled potatoes and carrots can be chopped and cooked with the pork roast.
The most basic pork roast recipe calls for rubbing a 3-pound pork roast with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. The roast is then placed fat side down in a slow cooker and cooked on low for seven hours. The roast can also be cooked in a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for two hours or until the roast is no longer pink inside.
A variation uses 3/4 cup of soy sauce, 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon minced onion, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar blended together. The sauce is poured over the roast placed fat side down in a slow cooker. The roast is cooked on high for four hours or low for seven hours. Alternately, the roast can be marinated for two to three hours in the refrigerator and then roasted in an oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for two to three hours.
