This hearty and satisfying one-dish meal for pork and potatoes cooks in your crock pot while you are out and about. The aroma that will greet you at the door is simply sublime.
You can use a bone-in pork roast for this recipe, but the cooking time should be increased by an hour or two. Cook the pork to a minimum temperature of 145 F; that is the safe temperature established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
You could brown the pork before you add it to the crock pot for more color and flavor. Just heat some oil in a pan and add the pork. Brown on all sides, turning when the meat releases from the pan. This whole process should take about 10 minutes. Then spread the pork with the mustard mixture and continue with the recipe.
1 pound small red potatoes, halved
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 medium red bell peppers, cut into large pieces
1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
Steps to Make It
Place potatoes and bell peppers in the bottom of 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
In a small bowl, mix mustard, thyme, salt, and pepper and spread evenly over pork.
Place the pork on top of the vegetables in the slow cooker and pour beef broth over all.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. Slice pork and serve with vegetables and juices. If you have a new, hotter cooking crock pot, cook on low for 6 to 7 hours until pork registers 145 F.
- You can use other vegetables in this simple and flavorful recipe. Add some whole or sliced mushrooms, add cubed parsnips or turnips, or stir in some corn just before serving.
