Herb Crusted Pork Roast

This Herb Crusted Pork Roast is one of those easy Sunday meals that takes hardly any ingredients and you do nothing other than let the pork cook. I think everyone needs a recipe like that. The best part about it is that the pork is actually really flavorful and makes a fantastic gravy from the drippings. We threw in a few red potatoes and served everything alongside a really simple Caesar salad. Hooray for relaxing instead of worrying about dinner!

Is Pork Roast Healthier Than Beef Roast?

Pork is a healthy alternative to red meat.

Pork is relatively lean, not as low-fat as chicken or fish.

Can You Cook a Pork Roast In A Slow Cooker?

A simple way to cook a pork roast is using a slow cooker or crock pot.

Season the roast, pan sear if desired, but it is not necessary.

Place the roast in the slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on low.

Can Pork Roast Be a Little Pink?

Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

After the pork reaches 145 degrees, it should be allowed to rest for 3 minutes.

Even if it is still a little pink, it is safe to eat as long as it reached 145 degrees.
