Bavarian Pork Dinner

  • Servings: 6

Add sauerkraut, a little mustard, new potatoes, and beer to the slow cooker and this pork roast takes on a Bavarian flavor. When these wonderful ingredients slow cook together they can leave behind a cooked-on mess. Add a slow cooker liner and eliminate the scrubbing and soaking required to otherwise clean the slow cooker bowl. When the meal is over, remove the empty slow cooker liner from the cooled slow cooker and toss.
