French Balsamic Pork {A Crockpot Dish}

Today I failed at Father's Day. I tossed and turned all night, slept in until almost 9 without even knowing it, and then woke up with a bolt! It was Father's Day! Of course, the kids were up, he had already fed them breakfast, done some laundry, finished the dishes, and been sung to "Happy Father's Day to You!" by our oldest. I truly felt like a failure. It was the day I was supposed to dote on him. In a groggy stupor I got his gifts, forgetting the price tags all over them, and we had a gift opening. It was fun to watch the boys excitement as they celebrated their Father.

Of course, I hadn't gone shopping last night out of sheer exhaustion (it's full-blown allergy season folks and my medicine is not working!) either and dinner was a last minute - thrown together in the crock-pot meal. I tell you, if I could have such success with a meal I'd cook like this daily. It was a fantastic meal. I have to share my latest recipe with you!

French Balsamic Pork

French Balsamic Pork

3 Pound Pork Roast
8oz Kraft Light Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 cup French's French Fried Onions
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

Cut up the Pork Roast into 4-6 light portions. Broil the pieces in the oven for 2-3 minutes on either side. Mix the rest of the ingredients and combine with the Pork in a Crock Pot. Cook on High for 3-4 hours or Low for 7-8 hours.

This was absolutely divine. I loved it so much and the sauce was perfect as a gravy. Delicious. I served this with rolls, steamed carrots, and mashed potatoes.

I do believe I have all those ingredients on hand (including a pork roast in the freezer). It sounds delicious - and I love anything with balsamic in it. Don't feel too bad - I made my husband work all day in the yard (in 100 degree heat)....although we did the same on Mothers Day, so I guess it's OK.
