8 Low-Effort Slow Cooker Meals for the Busy Parent

Pulled port

Soda-licious shredded pork

Who knew that the secret ingredient for fall apart, tender meat was Dr. Pepper? The Pioneer Woman keeps it simple with some onion, canned peppers, brown sugar, spices and Dr. Pepper.

Don't have any Dr. Pepper? You can substitute with any dark-colored soda. You can also use this same method for slow-cooking beef and chicken. Shredded pork is delicious on taco shells, buns, sandwich bread and more. This recipe is written for the stove top, but cooked on low in the slow-cooker for 8-10 hours the meat turns out tender and heavenly. Depending on your family size, one batch can usually be the staple for multiple meals.
