hi everyone
need some help i bought a slow cooker the other week which i haven't got round to using yet. i have a pork joint which i was going to cook for tomorrow and want to try it in the slow cooker.
just wondered if anyone could advise me how long to cook it for, do i need to add any water and what temperature to cook it on (high or low)
thanks in advance for any help

Slowly

Low temp for about 6 hours or so. Don;t put any water in and raise the joint up so that it doesn't sit in any fat that drips off the pork.

it wont roast properly and crackling will be soggy as temp is too low.

You can always finish it off in the oven for the last 30 mins or so - should crisp it up.

I put my port joint in with some sparkly wine and just slow roasted it all day and it just melted in the mouth, although it does crumble when you try to carve it but I put the meat in the wine.
You could raise the meat out of the liquid and it will just steam and may not crumble as much.
After I got it out of slow cooker I blasted it on high in oven to crisp it up or you can also fry it first to seal the juices in and keep it together
I then used the juices to make the gravy which was soooo lovely!!!
I also put my pots and veg in to cook although the veg don't need as long as the meat and pots....
