I love making this slow-cooked dish for chilly fall dinners with my family—the comforting apple-cinnamon aroma fills our whole house. The pork roast tastes even better served with homemade mashed potatoes.—Rachel Schultz, Lansing, Michigan
My slow cooker pork has four ingredients and less than 10 minutes of prep. The result tastes just like the kalua pig slow-roasted all day in an underground oven. —Rholinelle DeTorres, San Jose, California
Thai cuisine features flavors that are hot and sour, salty and sweet. This one-dish pork satay balances all of them using ginger and red pepper flakes, rice vinegar, garlic, lime juice and creamy peanut butter. —Nicole Werner, Ann Arbor, Michigan
My husband loves this roast, paired with spiced peaches and sauce. Easy to make, it’s ideal for special occasions or weeknight meals when it’s chilly here in the Northwoods.—Janice Christofferson, Eagle River, Wisconsin
Cindy Steffen from Cedarburg, Wisconsin shares one of her family favorites for cold-weather comfort. “This recipe takes less than five minutes to assemble and is delicious.” TIP: “I like to serve the roast with rice, then use the tangy sauce as a gravy for both,” Cindy shares.
This is the meal I have become famous for, and it is so simple. The garlic and apple flavors really compliment the pork. It's great with steamed fresh asparagus and roasted red potatoes. —Jennifer Loos, Washington Boro, Pennsylvania
