I have made no secret about my love of our crockpot. Sometimes I have odd texture issues with meats, but always really like them if they are shredded or fall apart with ease. I love the flavors of red wine cooked with meat and wanted something that would cook while I was away at work. I added a little Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar for an extra kick of salty sweet flavor. I served this roast with creamy mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. Ron and I both loved the flavors of the pork. Kellen even tried a few pieces, but he was partial to his green beans. Next time we make it I think I will throw in mushrooms and onions joining the pork for the all day simmer.
Tonight is our volleyball game! I always get excited to play...mainly for the friends, but it also means I get a cold tap beer. Drool.
