Slow Cooker Cowboy Pork and Beans are so easy to make right in the slow cooker! Tender pork and a secret ingredient give this dish amazing flavor!
Slow Cooker Cowboy Pork and Beans are a delicious dish that is full of flavor thanks to a secret ingredient!
I love using my slow cooker on these cold winter days and a bowl of these Cowboy Pork and Beans is the perfect hearty and comforting dinner with a warm slice of cornbread or a few buttered crackers, yum!! Comfort in a bowl!
Now, while I do love this dish to warm me up on chilly evenings, I also love to make it in the summer as a delicious dish for cookouts and BBQs.
The best part about this meal is I can just “set it and forget it” and I’ll have an amazing dinner ready for us that night.
One of the ingredients I use to give this dish its fabulous flavor is the Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet. I love using Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork in so many dishes because I can have a delicious, hassle-free meal in about 30 minutes or even less! The prep work is already done and the pork is already perfectly seasoned and ready for me to slow-cook, roast, grill, or sauté for a dinner fit for entertaining guests or a busy weeknight.
With so many varieties of cuts like loin filets, boneless loins, sirloin roasts, tenderloins, and pork chops there is something for everyone. They are safe and most delicious when cooked to an internal temperature of 145F followed by a three-minute rest to ensure maximum juiciness!
I pick up my Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork right at my local Walmart, Harris Teeter or Food Lion and it is available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Sweet Teriyaki, Original Recipe, and Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper. You can have a different dish every night of the week!
These Slow Cooker Cowboy Pork and Beans are full of flavor with onions, brown sugar, that delicious Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork and my secret ingredient – crushed pineapple!!
It adds just the right amount of sweetness and tang to make this dish out of this world!
If you really wanted to make these beans just over the top you could always add in some Smithfield Bacon for a truly rich dish.
This is one of my go-to recipes that everyone always loves, and I love that it is so easy to make. Those tender bites of pork just make this dish a crowd pleaser!
So, head to your local Walmart, Food Lion or Harris Teeter and pick up some Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork in all the varieties and a fast, flavorful dinner is never far away.
