This recipe was adapted from one my mom used to make when I was growing up. It has all of our favorite "fall" flavors, such as apples, pork roast, sauerkraut and potatoes. I often coat the slow cooker insert with cooking spray to prevent the potatoes and meat from sticking.—Tonya Swain, Seville, Ohio
With molasses and brown sugar, this sweet and tangy pork takes just a few minutes of prep and offers plenty of hands-free time. It’s even more rewarding with yummy sweet potatoes. —Katie Grady, West Boylston, Massachusetts
For an extra treat with this moist, tender pork, crisp canned french-fried onion pieces in a dry skillet, then sprinkle over the top just before serving. Round it out with mashed potatoes or fluffy noodles. —Judy Clark, Addison, Michigan
I made these sandwiches on a whim one Sunday when friends called to say they wanted to drop by in the afternoon. I was able to feed them and my neighbors a casual supper. If you have time, you can coat the roast with the rub and store, covered, in the refrigerator several hours before cooking for even more flavor. &mdashDeb LeBlanc, Phillipsburg, Kansas
The ingredient list may seem long for my saucy pork, but most of these items are common things you’ll already have in your kitchen. Plus, once the sauce is mixed up, the slow cooker does the rest and you can focus on other things. I think the liquid smoke is what gives the barbecue its authentic taste!
