Top Rated Slow Cooker Recipes

It's not often in life that minimal work reaps big rewards. Pulled pork defies this unfortunate principle. Though it takes basically all day to cook, it requires surprisingly little effort. You don't need a grill, and you don't need to make your apartment unnecessarily hot. All you need is a slow cooker — any size and make will do — and the below ingredients. The smallest Crock-Pots can be a bit trickier, but it's completely manageable. Use as much of the pork as you can fit, and adjust the amount of ingredients you use based on how much pork you're able to use. One problem we've experienced with the super-small slow cookers is that the juices can get dangerously high — keep a baster nearby and check every couple of hours. If the juices are approaching the slow cooker's lid, use the baster to remove some of the liquid.
