Per the request of some blog readers and some friends, I spent some time developing really easy slow cooker recipes for you.
I have to say, as much as I love spending time in the kitchen, it was an awesome week. I spent 5 minutes every morning dumping everything in the slow cooker and I basically stayed out of the kitchen the rest of the day. It was a nice break from constantly cooking!
Here is yet another super easy slow cooker recipe, Maple Orange Pork Shoulder. This one will take a little more than 5 minutes to prep, maybe 7 minutes! Like always, you can fancy it up by using my 5 Tips for Perfect Slow Cooker Meals.
Easy Slow Cooker Maple Orange Pork Shoulder
2.5-3lbs. pork shoulder, cut into several big chunks

1 apple, peeled and chopped
- Rub the pork with the salt, pepper and sage. Place it in the slow cooker.
