Slow cooker pork casserole

There is nothing better after a busy day than a slow cooked meal. I use my slow cooker all year round. In winter because it is comforting to come home to a warm, rich meal, and in summer because who wants to stand over a hot stove when the sun is shining.

This is an easy recipe for a pork shoulder, butternut and sweet potato casserole. Perfect for an autumn evening.
