Dishes like this one show the magic of the slow cooker! Simple ingredients come together over the long cooking process to make a barbecued, saucy bean and vegetable mixture and tender pork for a one-dish delight. The simple 10 minutes assembly of ingredients means this can cook during a working weekday or while other things get done on the weekend. Dinner is ready with no need for other sides, though a simple green salad is always a welcome accompaniment. Great for colder nights, the barbecue profile also works will in the summer grilling season.
