Too much pork in slow cooker-- will it still cook?

mrsjagirard | Dec 15, 2013 10:22 AM

So I love my slow cooker and normally try to only fill it 2/3 of the way up. This time I got a little overexcited about pulled pork tacos and I put a 6 lb bone in piece of pork butt in my slowcooker and it filled the slow cooker to the top. About 1.5 hours later, I realized the lid wasn't tight (the meat was too tall) and so I put something heavy on top to make the seal and turned it back to high (originally it was just on high for the first 45 min). I have as long as it takes to cook but have I completely ruined the pork? Will it still cook and is it bad that the lid wasn't tight the first 1.5 hours?? Thanks for any advice!!

(It's cooking now!)
