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!
Pork roast is slow-cooked with savory and sweet ingredients, including a can of cola, to create tender, shredded pork burritos. A tomatillo sauce, made easy with a dressing mix, tops the pork for an out-of-this-world entree.—Katherine Nelson, Centerville, Utah
Muscatine, Iowa's Rica Hahnbaum seasons a pork roast with onions, garlic and spices, and cooks it slowly until tender. Then she shreds the flavorful meat and wraps it along with colorful peppers in warm tortillas.
This is an easy and flavorful dish that my family really enjoys. When I fix it for company, I usually prepare the meat the day before so I can concentrate on side dishes and relaxing with my friends. —Yvette Massey, La Luz, New Mexico
"This heartwarming one-dish meal is adapted from a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe," says Donna Wilkinson of Clarksburg, Maryland. "I start the pot roast cooking before I leave for church, add vegetables when I get home, and then just sit back and relax until it's done."
