1**You can sear the pork before adding if you prefer,while you prep the veggies, but it's not necessary.**
3Prepare all your veggies, then throw everything into a large slow cooker. I used a 6 quart and it was full to the top. Stir well to mix. Cover and set to Low for 6-8 hours. I stirred in a little flour and water slurry to thicken it up about 30 minutes before serving.
4You can customize this to use whatever vegetables you have on hand, there is no right or wrong here!
