STUFFED PORK ROAST FOR TWO

Cooking for two is sometimes a challenge.  I have found a wonderful way to have stuffed pork roast for two.


  • I purchased a small 8 inch pork roast from Trader Joe's and split it down the middle (not all the way through) and stuffed with dried prunes and fresh apple slices.  Added seasoning.
  • Closed and secured with toothpicks.
  • Brown on both sides in hot hot olive oil.
  • Place in our small crock pot for several hours.
Result was a delicious dinner for two with little golden potatoes and saute green beans with mushrooms and onions.

Have a great weekend!

    1. There are times I really like the leftovers, like meatloaf, or casseroles.
      Just in case someone is a visual learner, I like to share the steps.

      Those Easter Bonnets were really fun to make and wear.

  3. That's a great dinner. I just make a pork roast, It had garlic and herbs on it. I just could not do that strong garlic...so Ted has been the only one eating it for 3 days now. LOL. Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  4. Mmmmmm - yum! Did you do the veggies in the crockpot too?
    Cooking for one is even worse. :-( I rarely do it.

    1. I would eat so differently if I were just cooking for myself. But for well over 50 years I've cooked for family (4 kids) and for the church (they love to have potlucks...haha)

      When Don is on a trip and I'm alone...the grocery bill goes WAY down. I'm easy...HaHa

    1. Do you eat any meat? This can be done with Chicken breast, or flank steak. Not sure it would work with fish...HaHa.
      I love to cook and I love to paint and I love to blog....Have a great weekend.

  6. I'm never sure how many I am cooking for, or even if I am cooking at all. Your meals always look so pretty and yummy.

    1. MY small crockpot is my best friend. Use it alot. The prunes and apple just give it a touch of sweet.
