Slow Cooker Garlic Pork Roast

Start dinner in the slow cooker in the morning and have dinner waiting for you when you get home. This Garlic Pork Roast will cook all day and be ready just in time for dinner.

Now that summer has arrived and it’s starting to get warm outside, the last thing I want to do is to turn on my oven. As the temperature increase outside, I start to use my crock pot more often, to help keep the house cooler.

This recipe is a great recipe to make on a busy and warm summer day.

I like to purchase pork tenderloin at Costco on a regular basis and prepare it into pork chops and pork roast. I usually have a pork roast tucked away in my freezer to use.

I will throw a few potatoes and some carrots in with the roast to round out the meal, add a salad and dinner is ready.

Preparing the Pork Roast for the Slow Cooker

I like to put onions in the bottom of the slow cooker to keep the roast off the bottom and to add some extra flavor.

Onions in Crock Pot

I cut the garlic into spears to make it easier to tuck into the roast. Cutting larger cloves into thirds works well.

Garlic Slivers

Once all the garlic spears are tucked into the roast, I then place the roast into the crockpot. To tuck the garlic spears into the roast,  just cut a slit in the roast about an inch or so deep and push the garlic spear in. I love these little paring knives for cutting slits into the roast.

Then I just add the seasonings to the roast. I usually will add a few potatoes and carrots too.

Pork Roast Seasoned

Once the roast is done, I let it rest a few minutes and then slice. Usually the roast is so tender it just almost falls apart.

The slow cooker cooks this pork roast to perfection. Saving you time and hassle at dinner time.

  1. I’ve been meaning to use my crockpot a little…but it’s still packed away in a box in the garage. That’s not good, I know. 😉 Your pork does look quite tender, Shelly! I really need to pull out my crockpot, because I know it would make mealtime so much easier.

    1. My old crock pot broke a while back and I was lost without it. I didn’t realize how much I use it. I love I can take a few minutes in the morning and by dinnertime, dinner is ready to serve. Makes for an easy cooking day for me. 🙂

  2. Sounds really good, Shelly. I was wondering what the meat yield is with this cooking method. Does a 2 to 3 lb. roast cooked this way serve 4? With or without leftovers? The information would help those of us with larger or smaller households. Oh, and also, what size crock pot do you use for this type recipe?

    1. J. Mac, When I make a pork roast this way, our family of 4 get two meals out of the meat. One meal that is a meat and potatoes meal. For the second meal I usually make pork tacos or enchiladas. Sometimes I’ll make soup or a casserole with the leftovers. There usually isn’t enough meat for a second meat and potatoes meal. I have a 5 quart slow cooker that I use to make this pork roast. Hope that helps! If you have more questions, just let me know. 🙂
