This is a easy slow cooker pork dinner recipe. Super easy and can be made into tacos, burrito bowls, or soup if you add broth!
Recipe Hack / Cooking Tips:
- Load Slow Cooker The Night Before: This serves 2 amazing reasons. First of all, you just take it out of fridge and turn on before work so you have more “you time” in the morning. The less to do in the morning the less you need to rush. Secondly, All the flavors get to marinate overnight and you get a much yummier recipe. If you season right before you cook, only the outside will have flavor. But if you season overnight it will season all through the meat.
- Purchase Pork Stew Meat: Pork stew meat is the same a big chunk of pork shoulder! The only difference is the butcher cut it up into chunks. The smaller the chunks of pork the more the seasoned they will be.
