Looking for an easy but satisfying dinner? I’ve got you covered with these simple and delicious Slow Cooker Pork Recipes!

Make dinner easy AND delicious with these crockpot pork recipes!

Oh, hi! What’s that you say? I didn’t post yesterday, and now today is almost over? Well, I’m sorry for falling off the face of the Earth for a couple days there. I was making some backend changes to The Weary Chef to make the site faster and more reliable, and I couldn’t really work while everything was moving over. I won’t bore you with the details (are you already bored?), but I just wanted to let you know what was going on. If you see anything amiss while you’re browsing around, please email me to let me know so I can get it fixed.

Moving on, you probably came here for recipes, slow cooker pork recipes to be exact. You’re in luck! Pork is one of my favorite meats to cook in the crockpot, along with beef and chicken thighs. (Keep an eye out for those roundups in the coming weeks…) I think lean meats like skinless chicken breasts can get dry and overcooked when cooked all day, but pork usually stands up beautifully to slow cooking. If you agree, I just know you are going to find a few recipes in this list that you can’t wait to try. Let me know which one you might make first! (Click the photos to see the recipes.) Let’s go…

I love my slow cooker and use it a LOT! You have some incredible recipes that I want to try.
Lately I’ve been wishing I had another slow cooker. There are times that I’m using mine for one recipe but also want to make another–especially when I’m making my slow-cooker yogurt!
This gift card would sure help!
Thanks!

Andi

Hi, Kathy. Thank you! Dual slow cookers sounds advanced. That would be great for making a slow cooker dinner and dessert at the same time too. I keep seeing slow cooker cake recipes but haven’t tried one yet. I’ve never tried slow cooker yogurt either. Thanks so much for stopping by, and good luck in the giveaway!

Wow…favorite thing to cook. That’s like picking your favorite child! I’d say my favorite thing to cook is dessert and my favorite dessert to bake would be a pound cake. It’s like basic black in the cake world. I love the ease and yet the complexity of it at the same time that hits all the right notes for those eating it. Thanks!

Andi
9 years ago

Hi, Linda. Yes, picking a favorite is a silly question! I agree that you can’t go wrong with pound cake. My mother-in-law uses cream cheese in her, and it is incredible. I bet you make an awesome one too :)

Barbara Adams

Two years ago, I would most empathetically have said meat. But, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve had meat in that time period. Forks over knives, ya know. So it’s whole new experience in the kitchen these days…big fan of Indian food, so that’s where I’ve been focusing my efforts lately.

Andi
9 years ago

Hi, Barbara. Indian is one food I haven’t tried to cook much. We always just order takeout! I should expand my horizons and try making one of my favorite dishes at home. Thanks so much for your comment!

Debra Guillen

Any kind of Mexican food is my favorite to cook. My family love enchiladas the best.

Andi

Hi, Stacy. This roundup is terrible for a vegan, but thank you for stopping by anyway! I have a couple friends with vegan blogs you might like: Vegan in the Freezer and Jessica in the Kitchen. Have you seen those? Have a great weekend!

Debra S
9 years ago

My favorite thing to cook is dinners. I like dinners. I don’t eat much except for dinners these days. I hate cleaning up the kitchen however. wish we would get robots to do that.

Andi
9 years ago

Ha, yes a robot cleaner would be nice! My husband cleans up the dinner dishes every night, which is almost as good ;) Thank you, Debra!

Joanie @ ZagLeft

Andi

Katie H

My favorite thing to cook is my husband’s favorite “Crunchy Chicken” Casserole. He loves it!

Andi
9 years ago

What do you put on top to make it crunchy? I see you have a blog, so I’m going to go look to see if you have the recipe posted. I always need gluten free recipes! Thanks, Katie :)

Anne
9 years ago

As much as I enjoy cooking, I like to bake even more. And I think my favorite thing to bake is scones; I love handling the dough and the magic of their rise, and I love eating them, too!

Andi
9 years ago

Ooh yes scones are delicious. Do you prefer sweet or savory scones? I’ll gladly take either, but I like cheese scones the best. Thanks, Anne!

Anne
9 years ago

I’m going to have to go with sweet scones, although I do like savory ones, too. But mornings are not my best time of day, and having a nice home baked scone that I can just pick up and eat is perfect. Actually, now that I think about it, another reason I like scones is that they’re not too sweet, like muffins can be. Hmmmm… I think I’m going to have to bake some scones today. Ha!

Stacey b
9 years ago

I love making casseroles, and anything in the slow cooker! They’re usually fairly easy to put together and soo tasty .

Andi

Kamla L.

I love cooking and find it a very satisfying creative release. It’s difficult to pick favorite but if pressed the first things that com to mind are stir-fries. I also love making braises such as lamb shanks.

Andi
9 years ago

It sounds like you are a really good cook. Thanks for stopping by, Kamla!

Sandra Watts

Karen @ The Food Charlatan

Kristen patton

My favorite thing to cook is slow cooker meals. I love that I can come home after a busy day and know dinner is ready.

Andi
9 years ago

Hi, Kristen. I agree, you can’t beat the convenience of the slow cooker for busy days!

Kacey @ The Cookie Writer
9 years ago

Perfect timing! I just bought some pork yesterday and planned to whip out the slow cooker! Now I have to decide which recipe to make first. One of my favourite pork recipes to make in the slow cooker is pork chops (I prefer to make pork tenderloin in the oven.)

Andi
9 years ago

I don’t think I’ve tried pork chops in the slow cooker, but now I’ll have to make them soon! Thanks, Kacey :)

Amy L
9 years ago

I don’t have a favorite to cook- I really enjoy cooking! I do love slow cooker recipes though- such a time (and frustration) server for those busy days! Thanks for these recipes- I’ve already picked a couple to try out!

Andi
9 years ago

Hi, Amy. Yes, it’s too hard to pick a favorite to cook. I’m happy to hear you found some new recipes to try. Have a great weekend!

Pete Morton
9 years ago

I’ve always loved crock pot pork recipes. I find that a little liquid smoke adds just enough “something extra” to any dish.

Andi
9 years ago

Hi, Pete. I added liquid smoke to burgers once, and I think I overdid it. I’ve been nervous to use it ever since! I’ll have to give it a try again in the slow cooker next time. Thank you!

ChrisK

This give away is perfect considering how much I use a slow cooker and cruise Amazon. Hope I get picked!

Andi
9 years ago

I have a serious Amazon problem, too. Thanks, Chris, and good luck!

Tonia
9 years ago

I love making pork in my slow cooker because it always turns our tender and juicy. When I’ve tried making in a skillet, it usually ends up too dry. These all sound delicious!

Andi

Thanks so much, Tonia!
