    Excellent hearty pork stew

    Couldn't find the pork shoulder roast in our local grocery store so went with boneless pork shoulder ribs. Slicing those ribs up was a real breeze. Only compliant the parsnips and apples cooked to mush - beware of the recommended 7 - 8 cooking time.. Still the family loved the meal and we will repeat!

    yummy and filling

    This was very easy and I would make it again with a couple edits. Mine came out very mushy so I'm guessing I cooked it too long, but even all mushy it was delicious.

    Sorry to hear the texture wasn’t what you expected. Slow cookers do vary depending on the model and the age of the cooker. Next time, if possible, try adding the apples, squash and parsnips to the slow cooker a couple hours into the cooking process so that they have less time in the slow cooker and will therefore be less mushy.

    1st time working with or eating Butternut squash

    Great hardy fall meal. I will make some changes next time I make this. Carrots in place of parsnips. Peel & cube apples. Pepper

    Slow Cooker Fall Harvest Pork Stew

    Great tasting recipe, not difficult. You might want to keep an eye on your slow cooker the first time. In mine, it was done in half the time on low. Oh, and you might want to test how many apples are in a ...I wound up with 1 1/2 apples to spare when measuring the quantity. Also, be mindful of the given price. I know it isn't exact but $8 difference is more than I've had in the recipes I've cooked before. I even used a cheaper substitute for the thyme leaves (thyme spice) and still wound up significantly higher. Comparison shopping only lowered it by around $1. Just something to be mindful of here in the budget recipe section.
