Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best.  After the Slow Cooker Challenge back in January, I buried my slow cooker in the back of the cupboard and forgot about it.  I had a nice pork roast and some red potatoes, and no patience to do anything more than to dump it and cook it.  Out came the slow cooker once again.  I love how the meat just falls apart when it's done, and there is enough juice created to pour over the red potatoes.

1 pork roast
6-8 washed red potatoes
1 packet onion soup mix

Place pork roast in slow cooker.  Sprinkle entire packet of onion soup mix over the top of roast.  Cover with lid and set slow cooker on HI for 8 hours.  After 4 hours, place potatoes around the roast and cover again and finish cooking.  There is no need to add water to this.  Roast comes out tender and moist and just falls apart with a fork.  Potatoes are easily cut or mashed with fork and taste fantastic when some of the juice is poured on them.
