Crockpot cooking is an easy way to make meal planning even easier. For the days when you know there won’t be time for cooking dinner, throw something in the crockpot the night or morning before, let it cook all day, and dinner’s ready when you walk in the door. For most crockpot recipes, you can put all of the ingredients in the ceramic insert the night before and place it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning all you have to do it put the insert into the base and turn it on. What could be simpler than that?

Our crockpot pulled pork comes together with just 5 minutes of prep and 8 ingredients. Throw the roast into the crockpot in the morning before leaving the house, and dinner’s ready when you walk in the door. Our test kitchen staff loved coming home to the aroma of slow cooked pork ready to eat, and was even more impressed by this simple dish after tasting it.
