Simple, healthy slow cooker pork roast recipe born from my love of sweetness and lack of ingredients. The dish works great even for singles or smaller families because the leftovers are great. Don't throw out the juice! Save all the juice with the leftovers and include it when reheating; it will keep the meat moist and delicious.

I used a boneless roast (since it didn't specify, I assumed it meant boneless). I also used a mix of white/concord grape juice, but otherwise didn't alter ingredients at all. I cooked on low for 4 hours, then turned it off and let it sit for another 2 hours before serving. The pork was cooked through and soft, though I don't think quite soft enough to shred. The sweet potatoes were very, very soft -- to the point where they fell apart when you tried to pick them up with the fork. The carrots and onions were just right. Taste-wise, it wasn't bad -- just bland. It desperately needs some other spices to give it some oomph, but sadly, I'm not good at figuring out what seasonings taste good with what ingredients, so I can't really offer any suggestions. I wouldn't make this again unless there were some 5 star ratings from people who listed the spices/quantities they used to perk it up.
