1 tbsp dried oregano
1 bay leaf
3 15 oz cans of hominy (drained)

Add pork shoulder, water, garlic, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp oregano and simmer for 5-6 hours

Take pork out, drain, shred then add to pot with rest of the ingredients and set to cook on low for another 5-6 hours

Well to help get those holiday meals and cold weather slow cooker dishes created, the people from Crock-Pot would not only like to invite my readers to join the contest to win $5,000, but they would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Crock-Pot!!!

    I have a few favorites; chicken tacos, pinto beans with ham shank, pulled pork, roast, and stew are pretty much my go-to meals for the crock pot. I keep it fired up all year – it helps the house stay cook in the summer, too.
