For those of us who decide to spend part of our food budget on meat, doing so can feel like it comes with certain strings. To begin with, it most definitely can't go to waste (those cuts can really add up). Secondly, it has to be versatile—it'd be best if we could get a couple of meals out of it. And lastly, it seems only natural that we spend time cooking it in the kitchen. After all, there is something almost therapeutic about the act of cooking.

And don't worry about all the preconceptions around how intensive the prep work is either. Enter the slow cooker. It eliminates a lot of the hassle associated with perfectly preparing meat, and that's especially true of pork. Its many variations, from pork tenderloin to pulled pork to pork chops, can all be expertly made in a slow cooker, and that's shown by these 10 mouthwatering recipes.

Serve up Hawaiian pork chops, pork carnitas, barbecue sliders, and more during busy weeknights, and you'll not only capitalize on this meat's versatility, but you'll also see how it doesn't always have to come with specific strings. Heck, you don't even need a particular set of skills.
