Get the Most of Your Roast

There are Many-A-Ways to enjoy your large cuts. These recipes use Pork or Beef. With the purchase of a pig, we used Pork for all these. It was WONDERFUL!!! Cooked on Low. In  LIGHTLY Buttered Crock or Butter Flavored Cooking Sprayed Crock. Choose to amp some of these up with Bell Peppers (Added 1/2way) or Mushrooms. Also, flip meat halfway through. Trying to cut calories or carbohydrates? Try using wraps, egg rolls, or cabbage leaves, instead. Chicken can be tried with some of these, as well! Try adding halved potatoes to some of these, for sides!
TRY FREEZING THESE! Bam! Done! You’re Welcome.
CHECK BACK … We have more we will be adding!
