Notes

This delicious recipes excludes the liquid usually called for in slow cooker recipes and results in a more flavorful meal. The slow cooker traps steam so the result is still extremely moist and tender! If you like a little gravy add 1/4 cup broth, or if you prefer a juicier more pulled pork style dish add up to 1 1/2 cups of broth, apple juice, or beer.
