I love meals that require very little effort on my part, but that still create an amazing meal. This Maple Sage Pork Roast can be thrown together quickly in the morning and cooked on low in a slow cooker, so when you return from a long day, supper’s ready! And it really does create a complete meal! With tons of veggies that are cooked alongside with the roast you can take it easy and just enjoy your meal when you get home.
