Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Butter Beans and Broccoli Rabe

Ingredients

  • 4-5 pound pork roast, bone in
  • olive oil, enough to lightly coat a large saute pan for browning pork roast before slow cooking
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans chicken broth
  • 3 15.5 ounce cans butter beans, 2 cans drained of liquid, one can liquid in beans
  • 1 pound bunch broccoli rabe, chopped

Instructions

  1. Brown Pork Roast in a large saute pan with enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan, brown the pork roast on all sides. Pour both cans of chicken both into the slow cooker and turn to low heat. When pork roast is browned on all sides, set into the slow cooker with the chicken stock, fat side up. Sprinkle the roast with garlic powder, salt, and pepper across the top. Place the lid on top of the slow cooker and cook for approximately four hours until the pork is cooked but not completely tender. Tumble in the butter beans and cook for one-half hour then stir in the chopped broccoli rabe, cook another half hour or longer until pork is tender enough to easily cut into chunks. Remove pork from slow cooker and cut into pieces, serve in bowls with the butter beans and broccoli rabe in the broth.

    This looks so delicious, and perfect for this cold weather here in NYC. My grandma loves broccoli rabe so this is something she would like too.

      Hey Phil, tastes delicious and enables plenty of free time when using a slow cooker, simply brown the roast, pop it into the slow cooker with some chicken broth, then adding in two other key ingredients as the cooking progresses, can’t get much easier than that! I’ll bet your Grandma would love it, pork and butter beans is a Sunday classic to many within that generation.
