  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 pound boneless pork shoulder picnic roast
  • 2 tablespoons herb and garlic seasoning or other favorite seasoning blend
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 8 oz sliced baby portobello mushrooms


  • Melt butter and olive oil in skillet over medium high heat
  • Rub pork with seasoning and add to hot pan
  • Sear for 4-5 minutes on each side until browned
  • Add to slow cooker along with broth and mushrooms
  • Cook on low for 8-9 hours until internal temperature of pork reaches 205 degrees


  • To make gravy, pour drippings into saucepan or turn multi cooker to stovetop setting and simmer while stirring in a slurry made by whisking 3 tablespoons of cornstarch with an equal amount of water.
  • I recommend using a meat thermometer to monitor done temperature of meat for best results.  I use this thermometer with great results.
