Italian Herb Salted Pork Roast and Potatoes in the Slow Cooker


This is an amazing meal.  First, it only takes a few minutes to put it in the slow cooker.  And it tastes fantastic.  The pork roast is tender and full of flavor, thanks to Italian Herb Salt, garlic and white wine.

I’ll definitely be making this one again.  Next time, I will add more whole cloves of garlic.  Jim and I were searching in the potatoes to find the cooked garlic.  They were perfect with the potatoes.

I love a meal that tastes like you’ve slaved over the stove, when you really only spent five or ten minutes putting it in the crockpot.  That’s my kind of cooking.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this: 

You can see from the photo that I used a jar of Homemade Italian Herb Salt.  In the recipe, I’ve given you measurements for just enough for this dish, in case you didn’t want to make a whole batch.  I do love this seasoning though.  It’s great on all kinds of meats.

  2. This looks amazing. I am making a grocery list right now.

    Question: Where does the wine come in?

  3. Donna Henderson says:

    Love pork roast and the crock pot so can’t wait to try this! Sounds heavenly. In response to JP, I’m sure you just pour it over the top of everything…

  4. So I should pour the wine in the crock?! Guess I’ll double it and go halfsies with the roast 😉

  5. Any suggestions about using a pork loin?

  6. What size crock pot did you use for this recipe? I think the one I have is too small. This sounds amazing! My hubby would love it! We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel with no stove so this would work well for us.

  7. Hi I love your site and recipes. I was wondering however do you know how I could get the nutrition facts on these. Thanks!

  8. Is it OK to use table salt or sea salt? IF so, would I change the amount I add of either of these? Thanks!

  9. If I already mixed a batch of the italian herb seasoning. How much would I use of it already mixed up?

  10. This was a little too salty for me. so when I make it again I will cut down on the salt. Otherwise this has a fabulous flavor, and I used the rest of the wine while I was enjoying the Italian flavors.

  11. hi what kind of white wine do you uses is it cooking wine or the wine you drink

  12. Do you add water to cover the meat? Seems like the meat would dry out.
