(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 191 – Slow Cooker Slow Cooker Peach Pork)
I used boneless pork spareribs in this slow cooker peach pork since they were on sale when I shopped. Not as lean as pork loin, they cooked up moist and incredibly tender. And were the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

If you’re watching your points you’ll probably want to use pork tenderloin which is extremely lean. Or even boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs.
Use whatever kind of salsa you’ve got on hand.
