Slow-Cooker Cajun Pork Butt With Jambalaya Rice

Pork butt is always best done “low and slow”, making the slow-cooker the perfect medium. Plus it’s ridiculously easy, and Cajun spice is always an excellent blend, with plenty of robust flavor and a tinge of heat. Make sure to use those pork juices to the utmost for a taste bud tingling rice.
