Sunday Dinner: Slow Cooked Pork Roast & Potatoes

sunday dinner

Sunday Dinner is an original feature where I explain an easy to make recipe that anyone can do! Cooking is my favorite hobby after reading so I thought it would be fun to host a weekly feature to share some of my favorite recipes.

This week, I’ll be teaching you how to make one of my boyfriend’s favorite dinners — slow cooked pork roast.

Note: Based on cooking for two (with leftovers!). For more people, you will need to increase everything accordingly. Since this is a slow cooker recipe, you’ll want to prep everything in the morning and let it cook all day to achieve ultimate yummyness!


  • 1 lb. pork shoulder
  • 1 packet Campbell’s tavern style pot roast sauce
  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped onion
  • 5-6 small, red potatoes
  • Baby carrots, as preferred
  1. Place thawed pork into slow cooker and set to 8 hours on low. Pour entire packet of pot roast sauce evenly all over pork.
  2. Add peeled red potatoes along edges, along with carrots and chopped onion.
  3. About halfway through the cooking time, flip the roast over and try to get the potatoes & veggies underneath it. Be as quick as possible so that you don’t let too much heat escape! The whole concoction will be smelling just wonderful by now.
  4. As the pork roast gets softer, pull it into a couple large chunks using a wooden spoon or fork. This will allow the middle to heat evenly as well.
  5. When finished, the potatoes should be soft enough for a fork to easily pierce, and the pork should pull apart effortlessly.

Depending on the number of people/level of hunger, I might sometimes serve this with a side of brown rice.

If you make my recipe, please comment and let me know what you think!
