We have this on a regular basis because the local grocery often run sales on pork. Takes about 15 minutes in the morning and dinner is ready when you get home. House smells good when you walk in too!
1 (3 lb) boneless pork loin roast
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
1 cup chicken broth
1 medium onion, sliced
6 garlic cloves, peeled
8 slices fresh lemon peel (3x1/2-inch each)
1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut in 1/2-inch thick slices
1 (16 ounce) bag peeled baby carrots
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Place pork roast in skillet and cook until just browned on all sides.
2. Transfer pork to 5 to 6 quart slow-cooker pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add broth, onion, garlic, lemon peel, potatoes and carrots to pot. Sprinkle with thyme.
3. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook pork and vegetables on the low setting 7 to 8 hours or until pork and vegetables are tender. Skim any fat from broth. Serve pork with vegetables and broth.
