Slow Cooker pork roast and mashed sweet potatoes

I love my slow cooker. Make that slow cookers (plural) I have 4. We’re having slow cooked pork roast and sweet potatoes for dinner tonight.

Place veggies, pork, seasoning and some liquid in the slow cooker.

I used a dash of white wine and chicken broth. 1 package of frozen shredded carrots, 1/2 package of diced onions, green peppers and celery, 1 TBSP of garlic salt and 1 tsp of chopped parsley.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

It will look like this when it’s done.

The cooked roast

I failed to take a picture of the sweet potatoes before cooking and mashing them. Oops! Wash the potatoes, skin them, cut into evenly sized pieces and boil in salted water until tender. Drain, return to warm pan, add 1 or 2 tsp of butter and a dash of milk. Mash them and add more milk or butter if needed. Season, I like to add 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice,  and serve.

Serve with a lovely spinach salad.

Here’s the finished meal.
