The heartwarming taste of cinnamon and apples is the perfect accompaniment to these tender pork chops. This dish is always a winner with my family. Because it calls for only four ingredients, it's a main course I can serve with little preparation. —Joan Hamilton, Worcester, Massachusetts
"I'm a mom and work full-time, so I try to use my slow cooker whenever possible," explains Erika Anderson of Wausau, Wisconsin. "This Stroganoff is perfect because I can get it ready in the morning before the kids get up."
“This is one of my son’s favorites,” Vicky Dempsey says from Louisville, Mississippi. Buttered hash browns form a mouthwatering crust for yummy filling of sausage and cheese. It’s sure to please at breakfast, brunch or even lunch.
Our family was poor when I was growing up in Germany, so we ate garden vegetables for many weekday meals. When Mother made meat for a Sunday dinner, it was a terrific treat. My favorite is this tender beef dish, which gets great flavor from Dijon mustard.

I sampled this tasty pork roast in a commercial cooking course I took years ago and saved the recipe. Later, I converted it to family-size, and it's become a favorite.

"I've been preparing Stroganoff in the slow cooker for more than 20 years," relates Karen Herbert of Placerville, California. "Once you've done it this way, you'll never cook it on the stovetop again. It's great for family or company."
Sausage and sauerkraut are a palate-pleasing pair, especially in lasagna. My family was a little skeptical when I first served this unusual dish. But in no time, they were clamoring for second helpings.

Our whole family is excited when I plug in the slow cooker to make these fall-off-the-bone tender ribs. We like them served over rice or egg noodles. Husband Mark and I have eight children, ages 16 years to 3 months, whom I homeschool.
