Slow Cooker Pork and Beans

No ratings yet

This meal is easy to make and very filling!

Pork and beans is a classic dish with many variations. Serve this with a side of your favorite veggies and a whole grain dinner roll and you’ve got yourself a complete and satisfying dinner. Slow cooker recipes are perfect for dishes like pork and beans because they are party-ready and convenient to assemble. Whether you are serving just a few people and you plan to enjoy leftovers or you need a big batch for a large group, this slow cooker pork and beans recipe is sure to please.

Some pork recipes are filled with saturated fat and unnecessary ingredients. “Baking and shaking” your pork chops might seem quick and simple, but it is one of the worst options available. You get dinner finished quickly, but you are forced to eat processed ingredients that are a far cry from fresh, healthy foods. Preparing pork in the slow cooker and mixing it with high-fiber beans might seem indulgent, but it is a much better option.

Best of all, this classic dish is a throwback for many to their childhood. Pork and beans was a popular Sunday supper. It was served for other special occasions, too, but chances are, the recipe from your childhood wasn’t nearly as healthy as this. If you have a hankering from a favorite dish from your past, but you want a healthier, cleaned-up version, our slow cooker pork and beans is a great option.

    1. Pamela, You can used roasted red peppers (homemade or from a jar) and puree them in the blender, or roasted beets and peel and puree to get half a cup.

  1. Do you have a recipe like this but instead of canned beans substitute with home made slow cooker beans. I love good “pork and beans” but they’re usually from a can and really don’t have any pork in them. I love the idea of using a tenderloin and cubing.
