Poke a Pig in a Pot

This was a different recipe--with the Mountain Dew in it. I liked the flavor it gave the meat and the carrots. It was very good. The name was quite catchy, too!
Poke a Pig in a Pot
Heidi Narr

3-pound pork loin
Salt, Pepper, Spice rub, if desired
1 head elephant (or regular) garlic, sliced
2 tbsp. minced garlic
2 to 3 tbsp. butter or lard
1 liter Mountain Dew (or similar soft drink)
1 cup water
1 large onion, quartered
1 apple, quartered
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1 (1 -pound) bag baby carrots

Season the roast with salt, pepper and spice rub, if desired. Score roast. Place the garlic slices in the slits on the pork. Place the butter or lard in a slow cooker and heat on stove (see note). Sear roast on all sides. Add the Mountain Dew, water, onion, apple, bouillon, minced garlic and carrots. Cover and cook for 5 to 6 hours on high setting.

Note: If your slow cooker cannot be heated on a stove top, brown the roast in a separate Dutch oven or frying pan.
