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

"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."

"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!"

"Great recipe! My family asks for it often. I've increased the canned pork and beans to four, the BBQ sauce to an 18 oz. bottle and next time I'll add more onions."
