This is such an easy and tasty recipe. It cooks in the crock pot and uses ingredients you most like have in your pantry at all times, hence the name pantry pork roast. I use pork roast that I buy at Costco. They come four to a pack and each roast is about two pounds. The smaller size works great for our small family and I've got some awesome leftovers to use later on in the week. I hope you enjoy!
1 (2 lb.) pork roast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix (I used Lipton's beefy onion soup mix)
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 cup water
1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth (you could also use beef or chicken broth, whatever you have on hand)
pepper, to taste
Add pork roast to crock pot. Pour onion soup mix, soy sauce, water, broth, and garlic powder over top of roast. Flip roast a few time to get it evenly coated. Add some freshly cracked black pepper over top of roast. Cook on low for 4 hours. Let roast rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting. Strain remaining liquid and serve on the side like an au jus.
