Rosemary Pork Roast Slow Cooker

I just love all the deep flavors of winter, the Rosemary, Thyme and Sage,  that are in this recipe. I am able to go out to my Herb Garden and pick the fresh herbs, then stop by the barn and pick up the Pearl Onions from the cold bin, then I am off to the kitchen.  The smell of this Pork Roast will have everyone rushing to the kitchen to find the wonderful meal that awaits them at the end of a cold winters day.

Rosemary Pork Roast

Rosemary Pork Roast
Miz Helen's Kitchen
3 to 4 pound Boston Butt Pork Roast
8 cups pearl onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons rosemary
2 sprigs rosemary
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups Apple Juice
Mix together the thyme, sage, salt, pepper and 2 teaspoons rosemary. Rub the Pork with the season mix on all sides until all the sides are covered well. 
Pour the olive oil into a very hot skillet and sear the Pork until brown on the outside. Move it immediately to the hot Slow Cooker. 
Place the Pork in the slow cooker and place the pearl onions and the garlic around the Pork. 
Pour the apple juice around the edge of the Slow Cooker so you don't wash off the season of the Pork and place the two sprigs of rosemary on top of the Pork.. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours and finish on low for 2 hours. 

This Pork Roast Smells Heavenly and is Delicious!

  11. This sounds wonderful! I usually cook my pork roasts in the slow cooker, it is an easy way to produce a fork tender roast. I love the seasonings you've used and look forward to trying your recipe.

  14. This looks like a very filling and hearty recipe, not to mention delicious. I don't use my slow cooker as much as I should, so I'm always happy to get new ideas to motivate me to use it more. Thank you Helen for sharing your recipe at my party this week!

  15. I have a herb garden outside my kitchen door too, and it's lovely going out there to get fresh herbs. Actually this time of year the only one that really grows well is Rosemary as I'm in a bit of a colder climate than you are :) Your Rosemary Pork Roast sounds so delicious - I do love all the wonderful herbs and spices you have used. Thank you for sharing it with the Hearth and Soul hop.

  19. Miz Helen, This pork roast sounds incredible! I think your recipe will be the first slow cooker meal that I try! Even though I cook all of the time, I have never used a slow cooker. My boyfriend bought a really nice slow cooker a few years ago, so I got that as a bonus in addition to having him in my life now!

    1. Hi Mkkiki,
      The recipe calls for 8 cups of pearl onions, if you have less that's ok, but I would not use more.
      It will serve about 6 to 8 normal servings or 4 to 6 generous servings.
      The recipe calls for dried rosemary in the rub mix for the roast. If you don't have fresh rosemary to put on top just sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of dried rosemary on top and it will be great.
      Sure hope you enjoy your Roast and thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a great weekend!
      Miz Helen
