Eat just one bite of either of these recipes from our cookbook, 101 Slow Cooker Recipes, and you're sure to have good luck all year long.
Best of all, they both simmer away in the slow-cooker, so your day is free to enjoy with family and friends.
Happy New Year (a day early) to you!
German Roast Pork & Sauerkraut
Thanks to Sherry Doherty of Medford, New Jersey.
Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. Heat shortening in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown roast on all sides; place in a slow cooker. Add undrained sauerkraut, apples and juice or water; blend. Gently add pierogies so they are partly submerged in the sauerkraut (as the roast cooks, more liquid will cover the pierogies). Cover and cook on low setting for 8 to 9 hours. Serves 4 to 6.
