- Place pork roast in slow cooker with 1/2 cup of water (or you can spray slow cooker with cooking spray). Season with salt, cracked pepper and garlic powder. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
- Scrub and cut red potatoes into quarters. Boil for about 10 minutes, until soft and “mashable.” Drain water and place in bowl to mash.
- Mash cooked red potatoes with potato masher. Add sour cream and milk (I’m all out of butter, but 2-3 Tbsp butter would be good too!). Add more milk for creamier potatoes or less milk for chunkier potatoes. Add crushed garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Cook frozen green beans according to package instructions.
- Remove pork from slow cooker when it’s finished. Slice into 1/3-1/2 inch slices.
- Serve sliced pork roast with gravy and a side of mashed red potatoes and green beans.
