SPREAD mustard over pork.
COMBINE peppercorns, spices & soup mix and press into the mustard.
Place the pork roast on a rack inside a roasting pan.
ADD potatoes, onions, carrots, water and wine.
ROAST the meat at 325 degrees for 2 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the pork registers at 170 degrees. Remove the roast from the oven & let stand 10 minutes before carving.

IF USING SLOW COOKER: High for 4 hours, then Low for 2 hours.
*Depending on slow cookers, I always use a meat thermometer for accuracy.

** In place of dry onion soup mix, you can use dry minced onions, garlic powder and basil.
