Preparation
  1. Set slow cooker to low; cover with lid. 
  2. Slice carrots. Peel and chop potatoes into 1–12" pieces. Slice onion.
  3. Place pork in warm slow cooker. Drizzle with olive oil and add Portuguese Chicken Seasoning. Using your hands, turn roast a few times to coat (be careful—the slow cooker is warm!). Cover; cook 20 min.
  4. Add carrots, potatoes, onion, and 1 tbsp sugar. Pour in water. Cover; cook 4 hr.
  5. Uncover; add more liquid if necessary. Sprinkle on remaining 1 tbsp sugar and SPG Seasoning. Cover; cook an additional 4 hr or until pork and veggies are fork tender. 
  6. Let rest 10 min, then slice meat. Serve with juices from the slow cooker. 
Tips

Slightly sear your roast with olive oil in Sauté Pan before adding into the slow cooker. 

Swap water for Nourish, Ramen, or Vegetable Broth.

Use the remaining Portuguese Chicken Seasoning as a seasoning for a sheet pan meal. Think chicken thighs and your fave veggies, or combine with oil to marinate your choice of protein.

Serve with 2 cups leafy greens and 1 tbsp Epicure Dressing.
