Herb Roasted Pork w/White Wine Sauce. That sounds like a delectable dish. A dinner that would best be served in a gourmet restaurant. However, this is a super easy meal to make on any given day for your hungry family!
Crock Pot Easy
I’ve seen so many crock pot meals that consist of chicken, pork, or beef that entails slow cooking the meat all day with a simple gravy, salsa, or seasoning. These dinners can be really tasty and easy to make, but they can be somewhat boring. Don’t get me wrong, they still taste great, but they can be boring as far as presentation or extraordinary dinners are concerned.
This herb roasted pork with white wine sauce is an extraordinary dinner that is still an easy crock pot meal. Do I have your attention? I hope so because you will love the gourmet taste of this simple dinner recipe and will want to make this a Sunday dinner or any night dinner. Why the heck not, it’s easy to make, you can make this in place of Taco Tuesdays…maybe not every Tuesday though. Tacos are pretty freaking amazing!
As previously mentioned, this is a very easy to make crock pot meal. There are minimal ingredients needed to make this amazing dinner. And, you probably have them on hand in your pantry! All you need is:
- Chicken Broth
- Garlic (chopped, minced, or even garlic powder)
- Herbs de Provence
- White Wine (any kind will work)
- Cornstarch or Flour
I’m expecting you to have everything on hand, but you might not have herbs de provence. This is the secret ingredient to making this herb roasted pork. Seasoned chefs will have this on hand, I’m sure, but the novice cook might not. I only recently discovered this flavorsome seasoning when making my Turkey, Kale, & Brown Rice Soup and now I’m absolutely hooked on it. The flavor is distinct and strong, yet subtle. Herbes de Provence is a mixture of herbs and spices, which generally includes thyme, basil, rosemary, tarragon, savory marjoram, oregano, and bay leaf. All of these delectable seasonings in one seasoning! Amazing!
Making The Pork
Now that you know what goes into making this amazingly tasty dinner, it’s time to go over how to cook it. Again, this is such an easy recipe that it doesn’t take much to prepare. The actual cooking is minimal since you will be relying on the crock pot to do the bulk of the work. Nonetheless, you will need to do some cooking.
First, put the pork in the crock pot. Easy! Next, slice up a medium to large yellow onion and put the slices on top of the roast and around it. Then, you will top the pork roast with garlic and making sure to surround it with the garlic as well. After that, add your chicken broth and wine to the crock pot. Finally, top the roast with the herbs de provence. Set the crock pot to low and cook for 6-8 hours. Within an hour, you will smell a yummy scent filling up your kitchen and will be licking your lips. Unfortunately, you will have to wait another 5-7 hours to dig in to your dinner creation!
Once the pork roast is done, remove the juices and strain them through a wire mesh strainer, into a medium saucepan. Don’t discard those onions! Set them aside so you can serve them on top of your plated pork. Back to the white wine sauce…heat the sauce over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Then turn heat to low and whisk cornstarch into the sauce. Stir constantly until sauce is your desired thickness. If it gets too thick, you can add a little water to thin it or if too thin, continue to add a little cornstarch a little at a time. That’s basically all you do to cook this delicious dinner. Sounds easy? It is. You will be able to master this yummy dish without a problem, I have faith!
