Slow Cooker Curried Pork Roast

Whenever I find pork roasts for cheap, I buy alot of them.  They are great for popping in the slow cooker and always end up tasting great.  Unfortunately, with work, it is hard to use the slow cooker because it takes 4 hours on high and that means we are not eating until 9 or 10.  This was a new recipe I was trying in the slow cooker with the pork. It turned out well! I put it on top of the mashed sweet potatoes that I made for a different dinner the day before.  It added another layer of flavor and turned out tastier than I thought it would.  When I make it again, I think I would use couscous.  Its interesting to notice that all three of my last meals are orange...weird.  

Slow Cooker Curried Pork Roast

1 2 pound pork roast
1 large yellow onion
2 cups water
1/4 cup of quick tapioca
1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup raisins
2 granny smith apples

1.  Cut up onion and put into the bottom of the slow cooker.  Rub the pork roast with the curry powder and paprika. If there is any left, put on top of onions.  Place the pork on top of the onions.  Mix the tapioca, chicken bouillon and water then pour into the slow cooker. Add the raisins.  

2.  Cook on high for 4 hours.

3.  Peel and slice the apples into skinny wedges and put into the slow cooker.  Cook on high for another 1/2 hour.  

4.  When the food is done, take out the pork roast and shred in bowl.  Then pour sauce in bowl.  You may want to reserve some of the sauce for another dish (because there is alot!)  


  1. Oh, I hope you haven't left this blog for good. I've just been diagnosed with this (after almost two years of feeling sick off and mostly on) and it seems like all I can find are the sites that make me more afraid than ones like yours.

    I guess I'll just have to read back to your older posts and check back every now and then.

  2. Any reason you stopped blogging here? I was just diagnosed with GP and your blog looks extremely resourceful.
