Jen's Crockpot Pork Roast

Jen's Crockpot Pork Roast

Jennifer M. Ciaramello
Using a crockpot is a very easy and simple way to slow cook a one pot meal. I have tested this recipe and perfected the timing to make sure all ingredients are perfectly cooked---not too mushy, not too firm.
Editor's Note [Donna Sanders]: Jennifer is a good friend which makes her recipe even more special!
