Slow-Cooked Country Pork and Veggies #SundaySupper

Slow-cooked Country Pork and Veggies

It is time to break out our slow-cookers and cook up something special for Sunday Supper! We’re sharing our recipes from appetizers to desserts made low and slow.This event is being hosted by Heather of  Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. Thanks Ladies!

Do you have trouble deciding which cut of meat you want to use in the slow-cooker? In my area you can buy roasts prepackaged and ready for your slow-cooker. Handy,huh? If you can’t find ready-to-use roasts try chuck for beef and a shoulder or butt roast for pork.

I like to cook my pork roast when I include vegetables on high for 3 to 4 hours. This seems to keep the veggies firm but thoroughly cooked.
