help. confused about pork roast
I found a recipe that calls for pork roast cooked in a crockpot with squash, apple, rosemary, garlic, and apple juice (thanks to starbucksbrew). However, I am confused about what type of pork roast to use (pork shoulder, loin, boneless?). I don't know the different cuts of meat very well, and I have never made pork roast in the crockpot, so I would appreciate any advice.
The pork roast turned out great! Delicious. Here's the recipe that I originally found on this board by a member named starbucksbrew:
Winter Pot Roast
1 pork roast (I used a 6 lb. bone in pork shoulder roast)
Cubed butternut squash (I used 2 smaller squash, peeled and cut into large chunks)
1 chopped red apple with skin
Fresh rosemary ( i used about 2 tablespoons)
1 large onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
salt and pepper
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup apple juice
Cook in crockpot on low 6-7 hours. I think I cooked mine about 7 1/2 hours and the meat thermometer read 170.
It was great!
