I got the Crock Pot out and lined it with a Plastic Liner and then sprayed that with Pam Cooking
Spray. Added 3/4 cup of Water to the Pot and turned it on high to warm up. I began by slicing up my Yukon Gold Gourmet Potatoes and Whole Carrots. Put them into a large bowl and seasoned them with Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Italian Herb Seasoning, and McCormick Grinder. Tossed them in the bowl making sure they were well seasoned on all sides. I then added them to a large Pot of boiling Water and cooked them for about 12 minutes. I then added them to the Crock Pot and closed the lid. Potatoes and Carrots both take a while to get tender so that's why I first boiled them for 12 minutes.
I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger the other day and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I removed the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker on top of the Potatoes and Carrots. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until everything was fork tender. A special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier!
Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. Love this Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days. The added Potatoes and Carrots worked great, giving it added flavor. Both came out fork tender and delicious! Later tonight I'll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
