Crock Pot Pork Stew and a #Giveaway

I received Sponsor Gifts to use in the creation of recipes for #NationalSlowCookerMonth.  I received no monetary compensation.  All opinions and writings are strictly my own. I did not use any sponsor ingredients in this post.

Tender chunks of pork in a savory gravy with potatoes, carrots and peas cooks away all day long while you are at work or out running errands.

Welcome to Thursday's edition of a week long event celebrating #NationalSlowCookerMonth......

Ashley of Cheese Curd in Paradise invited us to join her in a celebration.  Ashley is not only hosting this fabulous party but she also invited sponsors to join in the fun.  We bloggers were given product to use in the creation of our recipes and our readers are being given the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes.  You will learn more about that at the bottom of this post.

I did not use any sponsor products in this recipe however I did want to share it during this week.  In my humble opinion using a slow cooker is the absolute best method of making any stew.  It always turns out flavorful and delicious with meat that is so tender it nearly melts in your mouth.

The sponsors are, however, making an appearance at the bottom of my post where you will find a wonderful giveaway for my visitors.  Please make sure you enter.  I would love one of my readers to be a lucky winner.

Let's see what the others have cooked up in their slow cookers today.......

Please stop by tomorrow for our final day of this fun event celebrating the wonder, ease and usefulness of the Slow Cooker.
