Shredded Pork with Mushrooms – Give Every Night New Flavor

I love slow cooker meals.

I love how smoothly my days “run” when I’ve got dinner going in the slow cooker. I love being able to sit on the couch through the “witching hour.” (Who am I kidding…I’m don’t sit on the couch. And just sit.) So I guess, I love being able to get through the witching hour without being in the kitchen and having little people pulling at my knees or tugging on my shirt, asking for a snack.

“Dinner will be ready in 5 minutes…you can wait until then.”

How many times have I uttered that phrase?

Thousands, maybe.

So this meal was a big hit…with all the little men, the big man and I really enjoyed it too. Plates were cleared, stakes were claimed on the leftovers (pulled pork sandwiches for lunch), and we all left the table with full, happy bellies.

The delicious flavors, the ease of the prep and cooking…a winner indeed!

    Well, your selection definitely looks good, but I think Fiesta Chicken with rice and beans would be a hit with my family!

  2. Jackie says

    I think the Rosemary Pot Roast would be a favorite…especially in this cold weather.
    Thank you!

    At first I was going to go with the Sloppy Joe Biscuit casserole because it sounded good and I have most of the ingredients on hand… then I saw the Sloppy Joe Cornbread Bake… and that looks even yummier! Cornbread Bake it is!

    Shredded pork looks good,I do a whole chicken,spice it up the way you like it,put in refrigerator for 1-12 hrs. then slice onions(and/or veg.) in slow cooker.I start out at high for 30-60 minutes,then turn to low for 5-7 hrs. Talk about good and it’s cheaper the the store bought ones and taste better too. You can make gravy at the end if you like,you might have to skim so fat out.
    Hope I win one of your prizes.
    Love your site!
