Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    1 5-6lb Pork Shoulder Roast
    3 Cloves Garlic
    1 Medium Red Onion
    2-3 Cups Sliced Carrots
    5-6 Red Potatoes
    2 Cans(10.75 oz) Health Choice Cream of Mushroom Soup

Directions

This is a large sized slow cooker (crock pot) recipe.

This recipe makes about 24 4oz Servings of Pork with enough veggies and potatoes for about 10 to 12 servings. Most likely you will use the remaining meat servings with other side dishes later.

Please Note: I calculated the calories by adding enough ingredients to the recipe calculator to ensure I had 24 servings of everything, so, the calorie calculation is correct per serving. However, the amount of ingredient actually listed is as stated above, only good for 10-12 full servings leaving about 10-12 additional servings of meat left over.

Empty one can of mushroom soup into the slow cooker with one can of water. Stir together. Place the roast in with the fattest side up.

Peel each of the garlic cloves and cut them in half. Cut six even dispersed small slits deep into the top of the roast and slide each of the cloves into the roast. Sprinkle pepper and cinnamon on top of the roast.

Cut the onion into large pieces and place in the pot around the meat. Put the carrots in next. Cut each potato in half or into fourths and place in next.

Pour the last can of mushroom soup over the meat and then pour and additional can of water.

Put all the mushrooms in and top everything.

Turn the crock pot on high for about 6-8 hours. Serve warm.

You can also add bell peppers, green beans, brussel sprouts or other veggies you have on hand. This meal is absolutely one of the best tasting I make. Because I choose a cheaper, fatter pork roast to make it with it has higher calories and fat. You can do it with a pork loin roast, completely lean and save a lot if you would like.
