This tender, comforting and savoury pot-au-feu makes it all happen in one pot, from scratch, with no catch: We eliminated any extra steps, like brining or browning the meat, to cut down on additional cleanup. Just toss the pork, earthy root vegetables, frilly cabbage and herbs directly into the slow cooker. Then, all you have to do is blanch green beans for a fresh finish before suppertime.
