When I think of random doomsday scenarios after watching a zombie horror flick, I try to figure out what meal I would miss the most. Invariably, I think of this pork roast. It really is the best pork roast I have ever had in my life. Really. It is the meal I would choose for my birthday meal as a child, the meal I still ask my momma to make when I go home to visit, and my go-to meal when I just need some good ol’ fashioned comfort food.
A few years ago I was so excited the first time I made this on my own, I had just moved away from home and needed something comforting – so pork roast it was. I crack up every time I think about that first time. I had absolutely no cooking experience and somehow screwed this recipe up. It really is tough to screw this roast up, it very well just might be the easiest dinner on the planet. Seriously.
But let me tell you about my spectacular pork roast failure. This is one for the books.
I gathered all of my ingredients together and put them in the crock pot per the instructions of my mother. And then I didn’t add any water…
Of course my husband was watching and says “Kara, I’m pretty sure you need to add water.” My response to this criticism? “Whatever, you don’t even know what you are talking about. That is stupid.” Oh what a sad day that was in my cooking education. Moral of the story: Don’t forget to add water to this recipe.
Ingredients for this incredible pork roast: Pork roast (any cut will do, we are slow roasting after all,) One envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix, Cream of Mushroom Soup, and of course… Water.
Place roast in crock pot. Add one can Cream of Mushroom Soup, Add Lipton Onion Soup Mix, Fill Mushroom Soup can with water and add the water to crock pot. Cook on low heat for 6-9 hrs.
The finished product should melt in your mouth. In fact, it is an abomination to use a knife to eat this dish.
Serve with mashed potatoes and use the juice from the crock pot as the gravy. Yummo.
