This delicious one dish crockpot recipe for Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Vegetables combines a sirloin roast with lots of veggies, seasoned to perfection with allspice and apple butter.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 3 lb. boneless pork sirloin roast
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 3 Tbsp. prepared horseradish
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves


Heat oil in a heavy skillet and cook pork roast until browned on all sides, turning occasionally. This should take about 10 minutes. While that's cooking, cut the acorn squash into 8 wedges and remove seeds. Do not peel. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Place squash and sweet potatoes in 6-7 quart slow cooker. Top with browned pork roast.

In a small bowl, mix together apple butter, horseradish, cornstarch, allspice, pepper, chicken broth, and thyme. Pour into slow cooker.

Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours until pork and vegetables are tender.

Delicious and quick, Guest Erin

I was a little dubious about the amount of horseradish and was afraid it would be overpowering but the sauce ended up being delicious. The pork and squash and sweet potatoes were nice and tender. I will definitely make this again!
