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

    Delicious! I didn't measure anything, I just dumped everything together and my husband loved it!

    I was disappointed. The pork loin was dry and surrounded by a watery greasy bean soup. After draining off the excess liquid, the beans were bland and needed to be "doctored up" with more BBQ sauce and spices.

    Delicious! The smell of this cooking all day made me very hungry and I was pleased by the outcome.

    This recipe is so delicious and easy to make. I made it several times already and I usually don't have any leftovers, because everyone goes back for seconds and thirds.

    Great flavor. Subed 1 1/2 lbs of pepper bacon for the pork roast. Also added 1 packet of Goya ham spice which our family swears by.

    This was the best meal on a cold day! It was easy and even shredding the meat was not too much effort. Paired with some cornbread, it was delicious!

    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!

    All the revisions sound great. I made it according to directions and we loved it. We thought it was even better as left overs.
