Slow-Cooker Pork Pozole

When the snow begins falling, I make a heartwarming stew with pork ribs and hominy. This is a fill-you-up recipe of lightly spiced comfort. —Genie Gunn, Asheville, North Carolina

    Delicious, and very easy to make. It tastes like a complex, complicated dish!

    This had excellent flavor! I substituted a pork roast (which I seared in a frying pan before adding to the slow cooker), in place of the Country-style pork ribs. It has a flavor that you just can't get enough of! Very tasty and very easy to put together.
