Dinner easy slow cooker, pork stew with green beans and potatoes is the perfect recipe for those cool autumn nights. School has started or will start shortly in most places. Time is short and there is so much to do with open houses, meeting the teachers, getting the school supplies, and a ton of other last minute chores. Who has time for a good, healthy dinner? We all can enjoy delicious dinners if we employ our slow cookers. All you do is assemble the ingredients in the morning and when you get home, dinner is just about ready. Whip up some biscuits and you are ready to sit down to a meal that will, as my mother would say, “stick to your ribs!”
Why buy those packaged mixes for the crockpot? It’s just as easy and to whip up this pork stew and you won’t have all that extra salt and preservatives!
