Slow-Cooked Pork and Beans
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
