One of the versatile meats to be cooked, Pork is cooked in a variety of utensils, one of them being a slow cooker. The offal pieces of pork, which are not generally preferred, taste very good when cooked in a slow cooker. Pork parts like the heart, neck ends, tenderloins, shoulders, tongue, feet, etc make for a lip-smacking dish when cooked in a slow cooker. In case you are not comfortable using a slow cooker to cook all the less popular parts of pork, you can use the following tips to get expertise in this direction:


  1. Clean the pork (whole or pieces) thoroughly before putting it into the slow cooker. You can use a strainer to wash the pork pieces with hands.
  2. In case you are using frozen pork, make sure you defrost it properly before putting it into the slow cooker.
  3. In case you have any other ingredients in the recipe, like tomatoes, onions, vegetables, etc, layer them first along with oil or fat. Then place the clean portions of pork above the layer.
  4. Make sure there is enough water in the slow cooker because the pork may take a lot of time to cook. Ideally, you should use water 4-5 times the amount of the pork.
  5. Depending on the recipe and the temperature you are using, pork may take 5-10 hours to cook. You just need to keep checking in between as well as stirring the dish around so that the temperature and the flavors are distributed evenly.

Almost all cuts of pork can be slow cooked and enjoyed for their yummy taste.
