This is one of my favorite meals to make for my boys. For me, one of my true joys is making them a meal that has them leaving the dinner table full & happy.

Now I’m going, to be honest and give what is possibly an unpopular opinion-I really don’t use my crock pot often.  Even in the cooler months.  Not sure if it’s just that I forget that I even have one or maybe I’m not a big fan of the way some meat turns out after cooking but there is one meat that I almost always pull out the underused crock pot for and that is porkThis crock pot ranch pork roast only takes a few ingredients to get this tender roast that practically makes its own gravy.

How to make Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast:

In a bowl mix together the dry ranch, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, minced garlic, and water.

Mix all ingredients together then pour on top of pork. Easy! Once that is all in just cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Remove the roast from the crockpot and put on a plate or sheet pan.  Pull meat apart and dispose of any fat that is left on the roast.

Time to make the gravy:  Ladle 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker and add to a pot.  In a small bowl whisk 1 Tbs flour with 3 Tbs milk.  Bring liquid to a boil then add the flour/milk mixture.  Whisk constantly until it thickens, usually takes 2-4 minutes.  This can easily be doubled depending on how much gravy you’re looking for.

So rich & creamy. Perfect to top off this crockpot ranch pork roast.  Roast up some asparagus and mash some potatoes to complete this meal.

Variations for Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast:

  • Want an Italian twist to this dish? Swap out the dry ranch dressing for dry Italian dressing.

  • This pork roast is also great on sandwich buns with melted cheese.

Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake

I can’t wait to share with you one of my favorite fall desserts, Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake and a graham cracker crust filled with a beautiful chunky applesauce filling.

Ah, fall! You are finally here!  We are cooling down this week after an extended heat wave and I am so happy.  The heat, humidity, and mosquitoes have been bad here in Southwest Michigan so I am ready to start seeing the leaves fall, breathe in the cool crisp air and enjoy all that this beautiful state has to offer for the season.

I call this ‘chunky applesauce’ because this is the applesauce recipe that I make for my family.  If I have a few apples lying around I will whip this up as a side for dinner.  And since I honestly cannot resist a cheesecake this is a chunky applesauce cheesecake combines two of my favorite things.

How to make Chunky Applesauce:

If you wanted to just make the applesauce as I do, you would just use this step alone.  I’m sure your family will love it, it’s perfect with a pork roast and mashed potatoes.

Set up a cutting board next to a pot and cube your apples.  Put them into the pot and add salt, vanilla, butter, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple juice.  Stir to combine and bring to a boil cooking for around 10 minutes.

Take off the heat and set aside to cool if you are using for the cheesecake.  If not, serve immediately.
