good base recipe, needed help to make it great

i followed the ingredient list and instructions, and got a lackluster soup with chewy pork. so we ended up having somethin else for dinner, and the next day i put it in the crock on low all day with some minced jalapenos, diced zuke, mushrooms, red bell pep, baby yukons, fresh thyme, lemon juice, cumin, and a dash of apple cider vin. turned out amazing. AMAZING!! i was glad for the idea tho, i've often been a little pork shy, and this finished product may have started a little love affair...

easy, yummy healthy ingredients
