Hot days... I don't want to turn on the stove at all. We end up eating alot of sandwiches, but this time we had a crock pot meal- Which I love coming home to the smell of something cooking... and especially when I don't have to do anything more to it!
Crock Pot Pork Shoulder
4 lb. pork shoulder roast (any roast would do)
1/4 larger onion, sliced
8 small/med potatoes cut into quarters
Handful of baby carrots, or the equivalent of larger carrots, cut.
Layer in the crock pot- roast first, onions on it and potatoes and carrots around and over, however they will fit. Turn the crock pot on high for 1 hour then down to low and cook for 8 hours.
I don't think that pork needs salt, but if you use beef or venison, etc, then I would shake some salt over the roast before the onion.
I take it all out and put it on a platter for the table.
