Richard "RJ" Jaramillo says:

In order to make this recipe work right, you will need optimal crock-pot time with your Pork. This recipe requires a minimum of 7 hours of a Low setting on your crock pot, so make sure you take care of this step well in advance of your meal. I prefer to set my cooking time for the night before because the great thing about crock-pot cooing is that you don’t have to worry about overcooking your meat. As long as you have plenty of liquids, your meat will be fine.
