  • Marinate pork in refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Remove pork loin from marinade, shake to remove excess liquid but allow any herbs sticking to meat to remain.

  • Sear pork loin in hot skillet until browned completely, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to the crock of a slow cooker.

  • Pour chicken broth over the pork loin. Arrange potatoes, carrots, and onion around the meat in the slow cooker crock.

  • Cook on High until the meat is tender, at least 4 hours.

Cook's Note:

Do not pour the marinate sauce into the slow cooker, just the chicken broth, but try to leave as much of the herbs as you can on the meat while cooking.

Simple recipe to make and easy to tweak as I added green peppers and mushrooms as well. However I cooked the pork too long on low (9hrs) since I left it while I was at work and it became shredded pork. Also I was surprised at how much liquid remained after cooking for 8 hours on low. I didn't add both cans of chicken stock and I wouldn't recommend to either. I ended up shredding the pork and then cutting up the cooked vegetables into smaller pieces and made a pork stew. Add a little bit more seasoning (garlic salt steak seasoning) and worchester sauce when I reheat it and it was delicious. Read More

I'm very pleased with this recipe. It is good old meat-and-potatoes fare made simple and delicious. I prepared everything the night before and marinated the pork overnight. To use ingredients I had on hand I substituted 1 tsp each of dried thyme and cilantro instead of the fresh and 1 tbsp of fresh marjoram instead of the dried. I used a 1.5 lb bag of mini potatoes no cutting required. Four hours later the meat was perfectly cooked and moist and the potatoes were nice and tender not mushy. The roast looked very appealing thanks to the searing. While it was cooking I took four Mackintosh apples I had in the fridge and cooked them down into a quick apple sauce and served it with the pork. Delicious! I would definitely use this recipe again for a small pork roast. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

A nice easy recipe that will surely be a go-to for us since we generally have all of these ingredients home. We liked the spice combination (left out lime juice because hubby isn't a fan). No chicken stock home so we used beef stock instead and came out fine. Nothing better than a flavorful and simple crock pot recipe! Read More

I added the marinade to the chicken broth and it came out pretty good. I used the liquid to make gravy which came out nice. My family enjoyed it. Read More

A very easy recipe and and a useful one for summer when the slow cooker doesn t heat the kitchen up! I did marinade the pork for longer than called for - 2 days in all and it was fine. I liked the flavor and the added veggies were a nice touch. Would make again. Read More
