Crock Pot Pork Roast Recipe Using Costco Pork Sirloin Tip Roast

Costco is running a great deal on pork this month and as part of a project to promote the National Pork Board I am posting one of my favorite recipes using my trusty crock pot and a Sirloin Tip Roast from Costco. Pork is considered the “other white meat” and it is relatively easy to prepare. I recently made a trip to my local Costco to pick up the things I needed to make a really great dinner for my family using pork.

Costco has a lot of great products that I buy on a regular basis. I was able to pick up the canned mushroom soup I needed, fresh organic Ceasar salad mix, rolls, and organic broccoli, pre made mashed potatoes and four pork sirloin tip roasts. As a busy mom, I typically make a lot of things in my crock pot because it is convenient. Usually what happens, is that I get busier as my day progresses, and by the time dinner rolls around, I am very short on time to come up with something to make on short notice. The crock pot is ideal because I can throw everything in there in the morning and just let it go for the day. When dinner rolls around, I can make up a few side items and dinner is pretty much ready to go.

Pork is relatively easy to prepare for the crock pot. You can make lots of great things, like pulled pork, and roasts that simply melt in your mouth by the time they have been in the crock pot for hours. My favorite is super easy and versatile for making sandwiches, Sunday dinner, or shredding up the pork roast for later use like egg rolls, or serving over rice. Recipe to follow.

Get your roasts at Costco!

Get the roast ready for browning

Brown the roast evenly on all sides

Deglaze the pan and put into the crock pot.  It’s looking pretty already!

Add all the other ingredients, beef broth, soup mix, mushroom soup, and mushrooms and let the crock pot do its job

These were the mashed potatoes that I used that were on sample at Costco the weekend I went.  Who knew pre-packaged mashed potatoes could taste so good!

I know this looks all lumped together on the plate, but this is the best dinner ever!  The roast will just melt in your mouth!  Yum!

Crock Pot Pork Roast

1 2-3 lb Pork Sirloin Tip Roast

Olive Oil for browning

Flour

1 pouch of lipton onion mushroom soup

1 can of campbells cream of mushroom soup

3-4 cups of beef broth

Kosher Salt

Pepper

Can of sliced mushrooms if desire

White cooking wine for deglazing the pan

Directions:   Rinse and pat the pork roast dry.  Then sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.  I just kind of eye ball it, I really don’t have a set amount.  Heat 2-3 Tbs of olive oil in a skillet, and coat the pork roast in flour.  Brown it in the skillet, and remove the roast and put it into the crock pot set on high.  After I have browned the roast, I usually deglaze the pan with a little white cooking wine, it gets all the good stuff left behind from browning the roast and I toss it in the crock pot.  Add the lipton soup mix, cream of mushroom soup, mushrooms and beef broth over the top of the roast and put the lid on and let it go on high for 6-7 hours.  If you will be gone longer you can cook on low for 8-10 hours.  If you like potatoes or carrots, you can add these too about half way through the cooking process.  At the end of cooking, I will sometimes add a little cornstarch mixed with water to thicken up the sauce for a gravy.

I served broccoli, rolls, salad, and mashed potatoes this time around.

So, as you can see pork can be as simple or as complicated as you want for meal preparation.  This is by far my favorite recipe and the leftovers make really great sandwiches.
