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. So 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. So I usually have a pork roast tucked away in my freezer to use. I usually will throw some potatoes and carrots in with the roast to round out the meal, add a salad and dinner is ready.
I like to put onions in the bottom of the crock pot to keep the roast off the bottom and to add some extra flavor.
These are the garlic spears I will tuck into the roast. I just cut the cloves into thirds.
Once all the garlic spears are tucked into the roast, I then place the roast into the crock pot. 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.
Then I just add the seasonings to the roast. I usually will add a few potatoes and carrots too.
