Slow Cooked Pork Roast in an Onion Wine Sauce

I love my slow cooker. It does all of the work for you. Just throw it in and walk away, hours later dinner is ready. Roasts are especially our favorites! There are so many different ways of making them. This was one of the most flavorful ones we have made and for less than $10 I was able to feed my entire family well and had tons of leftovers! I hope that you enjoy!! My picture did not do this dish justice at all. I wanted to get a shot of my plate with an awesome pan sauce and mashed potatoes but I was so hungry I forgot to take the picture. 

Slow Cooked Pork Roast in an Onion Wine Sauce

5 lb. boston butt pork roast
1/2 onion cut into rings
4 carrots cut into large chunks
1/2 cup red wine (I used port but any will do)
1 tbs. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tbs. garlic powder
2 heaping tbs. of my homemade beef stew seasoning *recipe below
1 tbs. olive oil

Rub salt, pepper and garlic powder all over the roast.
Heat up the oil in a pan to med high and brown the roast on all sides until golden brown (if you want to make a gravy make sure that you do not wash your pan you will want all the yummies from browning the roast in your gravy).
Create a bed in the bottom of the crock pot with the carrots and onion. 
Pour in the wine. 
Place the roast on top of the veggies and wine.
Top with the beef stew seasoning.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
If you want to make gravy all you will need to do is in the pan that you browned the roast, melt a couple of tbs butter.
Once melted pour in 2-3 tbs flour and combine making a roux. 
Allow the roux to get a little golden, about 2 minutes. 
Whisk in juice from the roast until thickened. 
Make sure you taste to see if it is seasoned enough, I usually add a couple tsp. of worcestershire sauce and a little sea salt and pepper.
