Garlic Pork Roast

I haven't gone shopping for the week yet. That's on the list for today. I wanted to share a really yummy recipe we used last night though. I had a 3 lb Pork Sirloin in my freezer so I took it out for dinner last night. I found a recipe for a pot roast online and modified it to our liking. The kids LOVED it and asked for seconds. 

salt and pepper
6 cloves of garlic,slivered
1 large onion, cut into chunks
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of chicken stock (or broth)
1 bay leaf

Place the onion chunks in the bottom of a 6 qt crock pot. Place the roast on a plate. Rub all over with salt and pepper. Cut slits all over the roast and stuff slivers of garlic in them. Cut some of the slits deeper and some more shallow. Place the roast on top of the onions. Pour the water and the chicken stock over the meat. Add the bay leaf. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-8 hours (or until a meat thermometer reads 170F). 
If you want to make a pot roast just add carrots and potatoes to the crock pot.
