Slow-Cooked Pork and Beans Recipe

I like to get this dish started before leaving for work in the morning. When I get home, my supper's ready! It's a hearty slow cooker meal that is also good for a potluck. A generous helping of tender pork and beans is perfect alongside a slice of warm corn bread. —Patricia Hager, Nicholasville, Kentucky

"This is really good and easy to make. Cooked recipe as is for 8 hours using Bush's Homestyle beans. Put the crock on high while shredding the pork then added it back in for another 15 minutes. Served w/ cornbread muffins. We did find it a bit sweet for our taste, but will adjust the brown sugar or type of baked beans next time. Will definately make again!"
