Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Simple and Satisfying! Such a simple and tasty soup that really fills you up! We loved the spin on regular potato soup… adding bacon, sour cream, cheese...

Crocked Stuffing

This stuffing is so yummy and great to take to a family dinner. Everyone will love it. It tastes just like it was cooked in the turkey!

Jenna’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

I LOVE Chicken Tortilla Soup. It is my favorite soup ever and I just had to come up with my own recipe for it! I loved the idea of not cooking the chicken...

Cook Time 9 hrs
Temp Low

Ok Ladies and Gentlemen, here's my recipe... Please know that I don't measure very much, but these are the ingredients and the approximate amounts.

Submitted by Lyn Boehme


  • 4 Teaspoons Salt
  • 4 Teaspoons Garlic powder
  • 4 Teaspoons Ground cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons Crumbled dried oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground coriander
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 4 Pounds Boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 6 Bay leaves
  • 2 Cups Chicken broth


  1. Step One

    I mixed all the dry ingredients (except bay leaves) together to make a rub and rubbed it all over the pork.

  2. Step Two

    I even stuck a few holes in the pork with a fork and massaged it in the pork to ensure the flavor would be all through the meat rather than just on the outside.

  3. Step Three

    I put it in the fridge overnight to make sure the pork had time to absorb the flavor of all the yummy goodness.

  4. Step Four

    The next morning, I put the bay leaves at the bottom of the slow cooker and placed the pork on top of the bay leaves.

  5. Step Five

    I carefully poured the chicken broth around the pork making sure to not rinse off any of the rub. I covered it and let it cook for about 9 hours. It literally fell apart!

    Loved this! I didn’t marinate over night and still thought it came out great. After slow cooking, I shredded and put the meat in a lightly oiled pan and fried a little to make it crispy on edges. Everyone loved it. Thank you

    Great recipe! Made 1 minor change to reduce the chicken broth and added a bit of orange juice – about 1/4 cup.
