This is one of my favorite slow cooked, one-pot dinners. It's so easy to prepare, clean-up is a breeze, and it is simply delicious! There are only six ingredients, but they create a wonderful symphony of flavor (and aroma!) Smoked pork butt, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, onion and bay leaves go into the slow cooker in the morning; a fantasic comfort food dinner is served in the evening. What could be better than that?

How to Make DIXIE BOILED DINNER - SLOW COOKED

Step-by-Step

  1. *NOTE: All quantities are appproximate. The quantities of each vegetable you add will depend on the size of the roast, the size of your slow cooker and the number of servings desired. Be sure to purchase a roast that will fit in your slow cooker. This recipe may also be cooked, low and slow, in a large covered pot in the oven. DO NOT ADD ANY SALT to this recipe.
  2. Remove packaging from roast; place roast in slow cooker.
  3. Add vegetables; randomly slide bay leaves in between the vegetables; place lid on cooker.
  4. **TIP: If the lid of a slow cooker fits improperly, or seems seems "loose," cover the pot/insert, tightly, with foil after adding food, then set lid in place.
  5. Cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  6. Carefully remove vegetables and roast to serving platter (meat lifter forks work well!) Discard bay leaves. Ladle, or pour, the remaining juice into a gravy boat to drizzle over the meat and veggies. (Or just leave it in the pot and serve yourself family style! Less clean-up, lol!)
  7. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
