Slow Cooker Porketta Roast Recipe

Slow Cooker Porketta Roast Recipe

It has been awhile since I have had Porketta on the menu and I was kind of in the mood to use the slow cooker. This Slow Cooker Porketta  Roast Recipe is a simple recipe, but you have to allow time for the seasoning to blend into the meat. I knew I had a busy day coming up so I planned ahead and rubbed the seasoning in the night before. The original recipe calls for at least 6 hours, you might be able to get away with that, but I don’t think it’s quite enough time.

The blend of spices was excellent, and the end result was a juicy and tender pork roast. You could very easily turn this into a one dish meal by adding some potatoes, and a vegetable.

I served this Slow Cooker Porketta Roast Recipe with mashed potatoes, and corn; the family loved it. Enjoy
