In Response to Re: CROCK POT, MEALS,SIDES OR BAKING???:
I have done some BBQ pork in the slow cooker. I will brown the pork, I usually do this with country ribs, they are boneless meaty strips. Add a bit of water and a bit of BBQ sauce. When the meat is tender, 4 hours or so later. I will skim off the grease, add a bit more BBQ sauce and cook with the top off to thicken up the sauce. Or I have taken them out and place them on a baking pan and put them in a hot oven to crisp up the meat a bit. Almost anything you would braise you can do in the slow cooker. I find I do not use mine much I would rather use the oven and cook slow and low. I also use the pressure cooker more often than the slow cooker.

Thanks for the tips and recipes for this post and your last post.I wish I could still use my pressure cooker but being in a wheelchair and cooking from it just wouldn't be safe for me anymore.My son and hubby are a little nervous about taking it off the stove so this is just a better way for me.I do take things out of the oven or off the stove top if they aren't heavy the heavy things I leave to the guys.
