How to make slow cooker green beans and pork

Print this recipe
There are many ways you can make green beans and pork. You can select pork chops, pork tenderloin or hot dogs, if you're so inclined. As you can see in the recipe below, I chose Italian pork sausage, and it was for a couple of reasons.
The first was that in my house, we love Italian sausages and enjoy them whenever we can. But I also love that you can choose between mild or hot, depending on your mood. This time, I was in the mood for hot and spicy sausage. It was the perfect accompaniment to the green beans and peppers. With the sausage and the peppers combined, the whole thing felt very Italian. This dish is great on its own but would also be wonderful served over pasta.
