Italian Red Wine Pork Roast recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen My family was still talking about this meal two days later.

With such a large roast, I expected to have a huge amount of leftovers. However, almost everyone went back for seconds and I wound up with far less than half of the roast left for another meal.

How to Cook a Pork Roast

This Pork Roast recipe is an absolutely hassle-free dinner.

Less than 10 minutes are required to prep the roast; then just sit back and enjoy how wonderful it smells as it cooks through the day. Cooking this roast in a slow-cooker makes it easier than you ever imagined to roast pork to perfection.

Italian Red Wine Pork Roast starts with a 7lb pork shoulder (shoulder blade is my favorite cut of meat for this roast recipe). After layering thinly sliced onions on the bottom of a crock-pot, cook the roast with the onions, a blend of fragrant Italian hers and spices, water and red wine for 9 to 10 hours.

I used a cabernet when I made this recipe but merlot, pinot noir or any decently dry red wine will do.

While the roast slowly cooks it will absorb all that delicious red wine and herb flavor, growing tender and juicy while you don’t lift a finger. Shred the pork (it’ll practically fall apart on its own) and leave the roast to continue resting in its own juices until you’re ready to serve.

This Pork Roast Recipe was specifically designed for the slow-cooker. There are certainly plenty of tasty ways to cook Shoulder Pork Roast in the oven as well!

My favorite oven pork roast is probably Herb Rubbed Pork Roast. That recipe is one of the easiest ways to learn how to cook a pork roast in an oven. It takes just 1.5 hours and comes out marvelous every time.

If you’re a fan of Mexican flavors, you need to give Mexican Spice Rubbed Pork Roast a try as well. Like the herb rub roast, it doesn’t take too long in the oven and is another simple way to cook pork roast without much fuss.

As much as I enjoy my oven pork roasts, sometimes I want a recipe I can prep in advance and not think about until it’s time for dinner. On these days, Italian Red Wine Pork Roast is there to save the day.

I love that it takes barely any effort but tastes like I spent hours slaving over the meal.

Served with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a Strawberry Spinach Salad, I can’t recall when I’ve ever heard so many compliments on a meal from adults and children alike.

This Pork Roast can also be prepped ahead of time as a freezer meal.

To freeze this pork for future meals, let it cook completely then scoop it into freezer safe bags along with the remaining juice left at the bottom of the pot. You can freeze the bags flat in the freezer then thaw before reheating.

I love when I end up with leftovers because it’s so convenient to have pork roast in the freezer for easy weeknight meals. My family loves this meal so much that we hardly ever end up with many leftovers to freeze, but a girl can dream!
