Bavarian Slow Cooker Pork Loin

Ginger Glazed Slow Cooker Pork Loin

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Pork


Back to the slow cooker!  I love recipes that I can just dump some ingredients in my slow cooker in the morning and at dinner time have dinner 90% done before I even walk in the door. A few people have asked about my slow cooker.  I use a 6 qt.  Set it & Forget…

Whole boneless pork…
