Slow Cooker Pork and Dilled Brussels Sprouts

I’m so excited to share this new recipe for slow cooker pork and dilled Brussels sprouts with you! It’s fresh, flavorful, and so easy to make!

Slow Cooker Pork and Dilled Brussels Sprouts

Last month, I was walking through the grocery store, checking off my list, when I noticed that boneless pork roasts were on sale for only $1.38/lb. I wondered if there was a way to stock up now, so we could save money over the next few months. My mind started turning since I’d been working on creating some new slow cooker pork recipes. I felt like I could definitely make recipes that didn’t require any pre-cooking, were healthy, and by buying the pork on sale, saving me money at the same time.

I ended up buying three pork roasts and turned them into freezer meals for the slow cooker. I saved over $15 and stocked our freezer with healthy meals to enjoy for months. Plus, the best part was that I was able to have fun with my kids after school the days that I cooked the meals instead of working in the kitchen. 

Slow Cooker Pork and Dilled Brussels SproutsThis Slow Cooker Pork and Dilled Brussels Sprouts was hands-down our favorite recipe. I wanted to make something like Pork and Sauerkraut because it’s so tender and flavorful in the slow cooker, but my entire family (even my husband and FIVE kids) hates sauerkraut, so I ended up using a jar of Paisley Farm’s dilled brussels spouts.  Paisley Farm had sent me a bunch of marinated vegetables and flavorful bean salads for a holiday recipe challenge and when my husband said the dilled Brussels sprouts looked delicious it was like a light bulb went off.

Slow Cooker Pork and Dilled Brussels SproutsThe final product was fresh, flavorful, and absolutely delicious. I served the pork and Brussels sprouts with mashed potatoes, so my kids were happy, and they even tried the Brussels sprouts because I told them they tasted like dill pickles. I was so excited that I told my neighbor about the recipe and she immediately went to the store to buy the Dilled Brussels Sprouts. (Ha! I must be a good salesman.) The Paisley Farm products are sold at Kroger, but if you don’t have one in your area, sub a jar of dill pickles and frozen Brussels sprouts.
