You wanna know something funny? We didn’t cook with pork for years. My husband told me that he doesn’t really like it. That’s why we’ve built up such a database of Ground Beef Slow Cooker Recipes. Of course, he liked bacon and sausage just fine, but pork roasts, pork chops and all that, he wasn’t much of a fan of….. or so he said. Then, I started cooking it for him and suddenly it tastes good! I love how he’s changed his tastes through the years and how he is much more willing to try new things than he used to be. He is so used to trying out new recipes for me now, he’ll eat (almost) anything. Lucky for him, fish doesn’t really turn out very good in a slow cooker, or he’d be eating that regularly, too! Haha! (For the record, he doesn’t like fish very much either).
