This pork dish includes potatoes and carrots. The pork and vegetables are layered in the crock pot and slow-cooked to perfection. This recipe is perfect for those days where you don't want to worry about dinner. All you need to do is place the ingredients in the slow-cooker and let it do its magic.


  • 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder (cubed)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (crumbled)
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds (crushed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans (red or white, liquid reserved)
  • 4 medium potatoes (sliced into 1/4-inch slices, red, round white, new potatoes, or other waxy variety)
  • 4 medium onions (sliced)
  • 6 carrots (cut into 4-inch pieces)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Trim visible fat from pork.

  3. Toss the pork cubes with flour to coat well.

  4. Combine salt, thyme, crushed coriander seed, and pepper; reserve.

  5. Drain liquid from beans into a 2-cup measuring cup; add boiling water to make 1 1/2 cups. If you'd like, you can use chicken broth instead of water.

  6. Layer vegetables and pork pieces in the slow cooker in the following order, sprinkling each layer with the seasoning mixture: half of each of the potatoes, onions, pork, beans, and carrots.

  7. Repeat with remaining vegetables, pork and seasoning mixture for a second layer.

  8. Pour liquid over; dot with butter.

  9. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender.
