I make crock pot recipes all during the year, but winter is when it really gets a lot of use. There is nothing like a rich casserole or stew, or soup to warm up cold winter evenings. This crock pot pork cacciatore is a full flavored Italian recipe that is really easy to make.
Crock Pot Pork Cacciatore
Normally, I make chicken cacciatore, but this recipe uses pork chops for a delicious alternative.
