I cook a lot of pork roast, which tends to happen when you raise hogs.
This recipe has become one of my favorite ways to cook pork roast. It is moist, tender, and full of flavor.
This recipe for pork roast uses the crock pot, which I love this because the crockpot does all the work for you. You can start it in the morning and have dinner waiting for you at 6:00.
This roast was inspired by a recipe of Emerils that I saw. I say inspired, because as usual I did change the recipe quite a bit.
The main difference between my version and Emeril’s is that Emeril cooked his roast in the oven and I chose to use the crockpot. I also increased the orange juice and left out the cilantro. Cilantro would be great in this, I just did not have any on hand, so I left it out.
This pork is so moist from cooking in the crockpot all day and the orange juice gives it a very nice citrus flavor that we really enjoy.
I like to serve this with potatoes and vegetables, but you could easily serve this with rice or even as a sandwich filling.
