Easy CrockPot Pork Roast

I’ve had this pork roast sitting in my freezer for a couple weeks now. My mom sent it over along with some pork chops even though she knows I hate cooking pork. I don’t exactly hate cooking it. I’m more like scared of cooking it because of how strict you have to be with making sure it reaches a certain temperature and cooks exactly right and all that junk. I’ve just always been scared of cooking pork, and the fact that I just don’t like a lot of pork doesn’t help either. I’ve only had 1 porkchop in my life that I was able to eat, and that was only because it was a stuffed porkchop and didn’t even taste like one.

When it comes to BBQ though, I prefer pork, so I decided to suck it up and cook this roast. Beef roasts are my specialty anyway, so how hard could it be right? I started looking online for a pretty easy crockpot pork BBQ recipe and all the recipes I found required so much that I just about scared myself out of making it. Then I clicked on one last link and found this quick and easy recipe posted by Diana Rattray.

Of course, we don’t like onions, so I’ll leave that out, but I did add a little onion powder for the flavor. Hubby has an issue with the texture of the onions and I’m allergic to them, but not to onion powder. I know we’re weird! I’ll let ya know how the BBQ turns out in….12 hours lol.
