What a meal. Busy life = slow-cooking meat = happy family.
Again, I am embracing the slow-cooker. It's saving me! However, have you ever been home all day while the slow-cooker is going? Or worse asleep at night while it's cooking? I feel like I snack more while those amazing smells are wafting from the kitchen. Then the kids come home from school and whine until dinner because they smell the food too. And want it. Oh well, a small price to pay for an awesome meal.
This pork, is melt in your mouth delicious. And you can literally throw it together in 5 minutes and be on your merry way. When you get home you will have a fabulous, slightly sweet and savory meal that goes QUITE well with mashed potatoes. And there is so much juice to pour over the meat, leaving it moist and yummy. Ah, bliss.
We will be doing this one again and again this winter.
