Due to the popularity of Slow Cooker Chicken, I'd like to follow up now with pork, which is another slow cooker favorite. Pork is a staple in our house, especially when we're having a large group of dinner guests. It's a budget-friendly choice that becomes tender and juicy when cooked slowly. Whether you're tired of everything tasting like chicken, or you just need a change of pace, add these slow cooker pork recipes to your meal plan today.

    All these recipes look good. I don't have a slow cooker but I'm sure I can adapt by using a large pot. The BBQ would be my favorite! :) - 2/16/2013   11:49:57 PM

    They all sound yummy. I'm not big on pork chops, but the one with the apple-cranberry stuffing sounds yummy. I love pulled pork, too, but never made it. I just might have to try this recipe. - 2/16/2013   4:07:39 PM

    I wish I'd seen this one yesterday. I had a pork chop thawed and was trying to figure out how to get it tender. I put it in a small crock pot, but it never did get tender, so I can't eat it. - 2/16/2013   10:51:19 AM

    I've been avoiding pork since the recent testing of this meat showed such large amounts of contamination.
