Slow Cooker Bourbon Pork
This recipe was created by Quinn Caudill. Quinn authors a great blog called "Dad Whats 4 Dinner" - check it out! Quinn has loved cooking since he was a child. He is a dad to three kids and married for 24-years. He does the majority of the cooking for the family. His blog is targeted to making everyday food extraordinary.
In this recipe, Quinn used a family pack of pork chops to make this dish. He suggests trimming the meat and fat off the bone for use in this recipe, rather than buying a more expensive pork roast. Using Quinn's suggestion, this recipe can serve a family of 5 for about $12 with leftovers for lunch the next day. Economical and delicious!
