I love the sweet and savory flavors in this stew! Plus, pork shoulder always tends to be quite affordable as opposed to a beef roast. If you have trouble with those big tough butternut squash like I do, it really helps to throw it in the oven for 10 minutes first - the skin comes off quickly and it is much easier to cut into!

Can I substitute something for the parsnips?

Hi tonjajasinski, a good substitute might be white potatoes or sweet potatoes. I hope that helps! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes

OMG!! So, so good. Love the pig.
