There are so many reasons why ground pork is the best meat to use for cooking. Not only is it packed with proteins and vitamins, but it’s also an inexpensive type of meat.
Meanwhile, you can make various types of delicious meals using ground pork because of how versatile it is.
I also love using my crockpot to slow cook ground pork because it adds so much flavor and allows the meat to melt in your mouth. If you don’t know what a crockpot is, it’s an electrical device that cooks food at very low temperatures. Because of this, the food is tender, soft and incredibly flavorful.
A crockpot is undoubtedly my best gal on weekdays because I just throw in my ingredients and leave it on before going to work. When I come back, not only is my house filled with the delicious aroma of the food, but dinner is also ready.
If you’re also someone who doesn’t prefer to cook on a weeknight and would leave ingredients to cook on the crockpot for some hours, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite ground pork crockpot recipes for you.
Let’s get started.
1. Slow-cooked ground pork sloppy joes
Ground pork sloppy joes are a delight for the kids and perhaps the most straightforward slow cooker ground pork recipe.
You just have to add all the ingredients in the crockpot, stir them, and leave them to cook on low heat.
After a few hours, you’ll have the tastiest and most tender meat for the perfect sloppy joes.
Serve them on buns with a side of chips or fries, and you’ll be good to go!
2. Crockpot ground pork casserole
Casserole is a warm and hearty meal that’s perfect for the winters but just as great during any other season.
The best part is that it’s very healthy as well. If you want to be a bit more indulgent, you can top the casserole up with cheddar cheese fifteen minutes before switching the crockpot off.
Then, serve the casserole with a fresh salad, green beans, or rice.
Here’s the pork casserole recipe that I used.
3. Slow cooker ground pork stew
Another hearty meal perfect for the winters, pork stew is the best meal for a family dinner any day of the week. It’s simple to prepare and has a rich and flavorful taste.
You can also pair it with just about anything or have it on its own since it already contains vegetables.
