Ingredients:  
1 large pork roast

6 oz. of mushrooms, chopped or sliced

5 lb. of potatoes.
6 - 8 large carrots
1 large bottle of V8 juice

Directions:
Directions:
Peel, slice, and chop potatoes. Slice mushrooms. (If you like it in pieces, you can chop, but I prefer slices.) Chop the carrots. I use a slow cooker, but you can also cook it in a slow oven, say 325-350 for 2-3 hours until the pork is really tender. Add the V8 juice. Mix the dried onion soup with it. Add the roast. Cook slowly. I add the vegetables for the last hour or so. It really depends on your slow cooker or you oven. My oven cooks a bit slower that is normal.

Personal Notes:
The number of people that it serves really depends on the size of the roast, and whether you use all of the potatoes. I have found that if there is any left over sauce, it tastes good over pasta or better yet, egg noodles. Also, you can substitute the pork roast with a beef roast.
