Easy New England PORK Roast
{with Kraft Recipe Makers}


I'm not a big meat eater, if I'm being honest, but one thing I love is a Sunday Pot Roast Dinner.  Yeah, I capitalized that.  It deserves it.  Is there anything better than coming home from church {or heck, any long, busy day} to a house that smells like a little bit of meaty heaven and a dinner that has almost miraculously cooked itself?!  I can't think of many things that top it.  

For me, though, crock pot roast is something of a gamble.  I prepare it exactly the same way every time, but sometimes it comes out 8 hours later juicy and flaky and other times it's tough and flavorless.  I was really excited to give Kraft Recipe Makers New England Pot Roast kit a try.  I had high hopes that it would be my Sunday dinner salvation.  {There are lots of different varieties that all look delicious, but I immediately honed in on the Pot Roast one for just this reason.}

I found the Recipe Makers kits at Safeway on the aisle with all the marinades and simmering sauce-type meal starter kits.  While we were there we also picked up a roast and some fresh vegetables -- carrots, onions and potatoes.  Sunday morning I loaded up my crock pot before heading to church:

I know what you're thinking . . . that's not a pot roast.  That's what is fun about these Recipe Makers kits -- you can customize them to suit your family.  Each box has directions to prepare the dish three different ways.  We were in the mood for a pork roast for a change of pace, so that's what I used.  I also wanted mashed potatoes so I kept my potatoes out of the crock pot and prepared them separately.  Now, I hate pictures of raw meat, but look at that delicious simmer sauce that you pour all over the top to give the meat and vegetables flavor while they cook!  It smelled pretty heavenly before I even turned the crock pot on.  

When we got home a few hours later we could smell all that roast-y scrumptious-ness as we walked up to the front door.  Yeah.  From outside the house.  I let it cook for a few more hours while we all took naps {until we couldn't stand to wait any longer} and then it was time to give it a try.  I added the packet of finishing sauce to all the juices in the pot and let that cook up for about 15 minutes while I made the mashed potatoes.  I adore easy dinners!!  Here's what we ended up with:

Are you ready?

Like, really ready?

'Cause it's a whole lotta' yum you're about to see.

Seriously.  A WHOLE lotta' yum.  I used a slotted spoon to remove all the meat and vegetables to the platter, saving the yummy gravy to serve over the potatoes.  The meat was moist and tender and the simmer sauce gave it a little bit of sweet flavor which was a hit all around.
