Cooking Know-How

Taking the lid off your slow cooker for even just a minute reduces the heat and extends the cooking time. Lift the lid only if instructed to do so in the recipe.


Prepare using boneless pork shoulder.

How to Easily Shape the Stuffing Balls

Use moistened hands to shape the stuffing mixture into balls to help prevent it from sticking to your hands.

    This was very tasty but while serving it I remembered why I use my slow cooker so seldom - it always seems the dish I turn out, be it pork, chicken or beef, is quite unappetizing because the meat has turned to mush - then it matters little how good it tastes because I'm totally turned off by its appearance. Maybe I'm cooking things for too long. The results are better if I use my oven for 4-5 hours at a low temperature - i.e. 250 degrees. I'm going to try this recipe again using that method instead of my slow cooker.
