“This recipe is an Easter holiday staple in my family. My grandmother and mom passed it down to us. My mom had 5 kids and Easter morning was always hectic. Getting 5 children dressed in their new outfits was no small task. Slow cookers saved the day. My mom would put this together and it would cook while we were at church. The smell of sweet, tangy pork always evokes wonderful memories of Easter hats, egg hunts and family meals.” -Tamie J., Prosper, TX?
