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. This week I thought this is a perfect meal to share, Crock Pot Ranch Pork Roast.
Now I’m going to be honest and give what is possibly be 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 cook that I almost always pull out the underused crock pot for and that is pork. It only takes a few ingredients to get this tender roast that practically makes it’s own gravy. Let’s get started.
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 crock-pot 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 your looking for.
So rich & creamy. Perfect to top off this delicious roast. Roast up some asparagus and mash some potatoes to complete this meal. And here you are…..
