5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Pork Stew

This Slow Cooker Pork Stew is so simple with only 5 ingredients, but so flavorful.  I love to use Pork stew meat that has already been cubed for me by the butcher because it cooks evenly and gets incredibly tender and is so easy to pull apart. This recipe uses 2 lbs of pork so that you have leftovers to enjoy over and over – or to entertain a larger group. This stew can be frozen to reheat at a later date or put in the fridge for eating the next day! The simple ingredients in addition to the pork are Carrots, Onion Soup Mix, Garlic, and Rice. Everything (except the rice) gets tossed into the slow cooker with water and then simmers for 8 hours. Serve over rice and enjoy!
