How to cook a pork butt roast, also known as a Boston butt roast, in your crock pot with a delicious mushroom gravy to enjoy as well.
Pat the pork butt roast dry with paper towels. Place in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Take thyme, sage, minced garlic, salt and pepper and sprinkle onto the roast in an even layer.
Arrange the mushrooms and onions around the roast in an even layer. Pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the slow cooker.
Place the lid on top and cook the roast on low for 7-8 hours.
To make the mushroom gravy, transfer the roast to a serving platter and cover with foil to keep hot. Remove the bay leaves and if wanted, the large pieces of onion ( I leave them in though.)
Whisk together 2 tbsp of cornstarch with 1/3 cup of water. Slowly whisk into the mushroom mixture in the bottom of the crock pot until it's smooth and creamy. You may not have to use all of the mixture, just add enough to bring it to the desired consistency.
Slice the roast and serve with the gravy on top.
