Tasty Tip
Take a few minutes to brown the pork and saute the other ingredients before adding them to the slow cooker -- it gives the dish deep flavor.

    I skipped the fennel seeds as I don't like the flavor, and did note it was a little bland. Next time I will add some rosemary & thyme. I also found the pork shoulder to be VERY fatty, so I may try a tenderloin instead Ay next go round.

    I loved this recipe. It was very easy to make. The browning of the pork and vegetables gave the final dish a nice rich flavor. My only complaint is that is was too watery. The pork was tender and shredded well, but the sauce was too thin. I added tomato paste to the leftovers and it was delicious. I served it over polenta with mascarpone. Next time I make it I will use tomato paste.

    I've made this before and added tomato paste, Italian herbs, and some carrot. The leftovers made a beautiful lasagna.

    My husband and I though this was delicious. I used pork chops instead of pork shoulder since they were out at the grocery store, and it worked fine. Also I omitted fennel seeds as I don't like the flavor, and used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning which added great flavor. We served it over polenta. Delicious!
