Pork Roast and Pears

  • 1 lb. trimmed pork roast
  • 1 c. water
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 medium-sized Bartlett pears, peeled
  • 1/2 c. chopped white onion
  • salt and pepper to taste

When you get up in the morning, place the trimmed roast, water, and pepper in your crock pot. Set the temperature on the low setting and cover. Cook the roast for at least 7 hours (I find that 9 hours works best with my crock pot).

Remove the roast from the crock pot and slice it into thin pieces. Place the pieces in a 9x13" glass baking dish. Cut the pears into 8-10 sections each and place the sections among the pieces of pork. Add the onion and sprinkle with seasonings.

Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove the pan and mix the contents thoroughly. Return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes. Serve with fluffy mashed potatoes and a nice fruit salad.
