pork slow cooker

First things first. If you don’t have a slow cooker, get one now!!! This thing is the best thing since sliced bread!! Since I am always running around, it’s awesome to just be able to throw a few quick ingredients in a slow cooker and come home at night to an amazing, ready to eat meal!!

This recipe is always on of our go to recipes when we know we won’t have time to cook supper. It’s quick and after a day of simmering, the flavors all come together so wonderfully!!

We like to make pulled pork sandwiches with this recipe but you can also serve it with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots!
