Savory flavors blend beautifully in this hearty recipe from field editor Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. “This stew can also be made in a slow cooker,“ she notes. “In a pinch, I use a ring of garlic bologna cut into chunks in place of the pork shoulder.“
Growing up in South Florida, my culinary taste buds were influenced dramatically by the Cuban culture that so heavily populates the area. They say "the way to a man's heart is through is stomach." Well, this Cuban twist on a crockpot pulled pork will knock the socks off of any man in your life! Serve with rice and beans, or make into a sandwich on Cuban bread. — Kristina Wiley, Jupiter, Florida
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.
The slow cooker not only makes this an easy meal, but it keeps the pork tender, moist and loaded with flavor. The sandwiches are so comforting, they seem anything but light. —Beki Kosydar-Krantz of Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania
I don't always have time to fix the home-cooked meals my family loves, so I've come to rely on my slow cooker a lot. I fix these tangy chops at least once a week—the meat's so tender you can cut it with a fork—and we all love it! —Jennifer Ruberg, Two Harbors, Minnesota
