I am not the best cook in the world. I don’t really enjoy it so I haven’t taken the time to get better. Which means when I’m making dinner I want things to be simple and easy. If I can just throw things into my trusty Crockpot? Yeah, that’s my favorite kind of recipe.
Since pork roasts are on sale at Smith’s this week for only 99¢ a pound I knew it was time to put my trusty Crockpot to use. Here is one of my favorite, simple and easy recipes. You could also use chicken, but I’m a big fan of pork. My kids eat this up! It’s definitely a family favorite.
Head over to Crazy4Smiths for Joani and Heather’s favorite pork recipes and to watch a quick video of all three!
