  • Next, make the gravy. In a small bowl whisk together the ¼ cup of water and the cornstarch.
  • Remove 2 cups of the liquid from the crock pot and place in a saucepan.
  • Whisk in the water and cornstarch mixture in with the liquid.

Pork Roast Gravy

  • Heat over medium high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently for 3-5 minutes until it begins to thicken.

Crock Pot Pork Gravy

  • Drizzle the gravy over the roast, carrots, and mashed potatoes when serving and enjoy!

Notes
  • Add potatoes and celery to the crock pot instead of making mashed potatoes and gravy, for even easier cleanup. Ladel the juice from the crock pot onto the meat and veggies when serving.
  • Cut the carrots, onion, and potatoes (if cooking in the crock pot) into larger pieces so they don't get too soft while the meat is cooking.
  • Experiment by adding fresh herbs such as thyme or rosemary for extra flavor. 
  • If making gravy, use only cornstarch, Not flour. Cornstarch is flavorless so will thicken the juice without changing the flavor.
  • Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
