Slow Cooker Greek Stuffed Pork Roast

I LOVE the little Pork Sirloin Tip Roasts I get at Costco and I am always trying to find something new to do with them. I love Feta cheese so I wanted something with a Mediterranean flair today.
Here is what I came up with!

1 2ish lb pork roast
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup chopped purple onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 oz fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped(I prefer the pouch, not the oil packed)
1 TB fresh parsley, chopped(or 1 tsp dried)
1 TB fresh oregano, chopped(or 1tsp dried)
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 fresh lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Place your sun dried toms in a bit of warm water to soften
heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat, saute onion and garlic until tender.

Add fresh spinach and allow to wilt down, tossing gently

When the spinach is fully wilted drain the tomatoes and add to the skillet along with the oregano and parsley

Remove from heat, and add in Feta, tossing until just combined. Allow to cool slightly

While the stuffing mix is cooling slice the roast lengthwise ALMOST all the way through in 3-4 spots and splay it open.

Place the roast in your slow cooker crock pot.

Stuff the cooled stuffing mixture evenly into the slices, dont be afraid to press it in!

Squeeze your 1/2 lemon directly over the top of the roast.

Cook on low 6-8 until internal temp reaches 160

Carefully remove from cooker and allow to rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and ENJOY!!!
