|Slow BBQ Pork Roast with Yukon Golds, Zucchini and Mini Bell Peppers
Today I played around with the kids. We went to the store, hung out at the library, and put together jigsaw puzzles. When a sudden rain hit I didn't even retrieve the laundry from the line. What's an extra rinse, right? It was just not a "domestic" kind of day. It was too hot for the oven and too wet for the grill. Still, "What's for supper?" had a great answer. With about five minutes' prep in the morning, a sweet, tender pork roast cooked slowly all day in the crock pot. Perfect!
Humanely Raised Pork Roast*
8 oz unsalted tomato sauce, canned or homemade
2 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
(1/2 tsp salt, optional)
Place the roast into the crock pot. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and pour the sauce over the top of the roast. Turn the crock pot on high for four hours or low to cook all day Add an hour if the roast starts off frozen. Dinner's ready!
* Typical grocery store pork comes from hogs raised indoors in tiny confinements. Animal welfare issues aside, it just does not taste as good as pork purchased from a farmer who raises them the old fashioned way.
