Inside Scoop: No one can prepare you for how delicious this Shredded Pork + Cabbage Steaks with “Naughty” Sauce is. You’re using basic ingredients to create an unforgettable meal.

Cabbage has always been one of those vegetables that I’m intrigued by. When you buy it at the store it seems too boring and lifeless, but you can easily bring it to life thanks to the power of seasonings.

The combination of shredded pork + cabbage steaks with “naughty” sauce is well-seasoned and just plain delicious! 

Oh and one of the best parts of this meal is that it’s created in a Crock-Pot® slow cooker.

When I create a meal in my Crock-Pot® slow cooker, I am saying no to more busy-ness and yes to more cooking freedom! I’m going to introduce you to a divine meal that you just can’t say no to making.

An Easy Recipe Anyone Can Do

I feel as though there are a lot of recipes floating around the Internet that make it extremely hard to compete with. If you’re anything like me, you want to create delicious meals for your family, but you don’t want to spend all day cooking. 

To be honest, you can create a delicious healthy meal right in your kitchen without it costing you any more time. Let’s talk about how to make this Shredded Pork + Cabbage Steaks with “Naughty” Sauce recipe. 

This recipe really shows how easy it is when you can simply put the shredded pork in the @crockpotcanada for 6 hours. I like to add simple yet effective essential spices like aromatics like bay leaves, thyme, and rosemary. Don’t forget to add the stock to the pot too! 

Next up, you’re going to be making the cabbage steaks. I wait until the Shredded Pork is almost done before I start making the cabbage steaks. I think you’re going to start looking at cabbage in a whole new way after making this meal. 

Last but not least, the “Naughty” sauce is my favorite. This sauce uses basic ingredients, you probably already have in your kitchen. However, the sauce takes the meal to a whole new level and ties everything together! Go ahead and layer the shredded pork on the cabbage steaks and drizzle with the naughty sauce!

Why Use a Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker?

It’s important to note that October is also known as Crocktober. This is the perfect time to enjoy warm food with your family. Your Crock-Pot® slow cooker with MyTechnology can help you spend more time with your loved ones!

Over four decades ago, when the Crock-Pot® was first introduced, it was only a bean cooker. Obviously now it has morphed into something much more amazing. Now you can set your food in the slow cooker and go about your day! 

Use a Crock-Pot® slow cooker so you can share more time with your family and give them more love.

This Shredded Pork + Cabbage Steaks with “Naughty” Sauce recipe is a good example of delicious recipes you can make in your slow cooker this Crocktober. 

Say goodbye to being in a kitchen for hours. Start creating memories and less mess! I’d love to hear what you’re making this Crocktober. It’s the perfect month to try out new recipes and see how many fun memories you can make with your family.
