If you're looking for a way to add zip to dinner, I'd recommend this full-flavored jambalaya. Brimming with rice, sausage and veggies, each bowlful is substantial. Just add bread or salad on the side, and you have a complete meal.

Slow-Cooked Pork Roast Dinner Tips

Can you put raw pork in a slow cooker?

No need to worry about putting raw pork in the slow cooker; just count on your trusty digital thermometer. As with all pork recipes, once the pork reaches 145 degrees, it’s cooked. If it’s not as tender as you’d like, leave it in slow cooker until fork tender.

Why is my Crock-Pot pork roast tough?
