I printed this years ago from about.com who listed it from the National Pork Producers Council. This is a great recipe and when my grill was out of commission, I tried in my crock pot as well. I am glad I fought the temptation to increase the lemon and garlic, because the amounts listed are just right.
This can also be made using chicken pieces or breasts, top the sauce over potatoes, the sauce is delicious! use you favorite BBQ sauce for this, I like KC Masterpiece. For extra flavor and less cooking time you can brown the pork chops or chicken before placing in the slow cooker. Cooking time is only estimated depending on the thickness of the pork chops. Reduce the recipe by half for 4-6 pork chops, this is *very* good! ;-)
Just a little something I threw together in the crockpot. Goes nicely over cooked noodles or rice, or even better- with a nice loaf of crusty Italian bread to soak up the sauce. Some nice Chianti wine would be excellent with this!
Pork butt is a less-expensive cut, but cooking at a very low temperature ensures a tender, juicy roast, and it dissolves fat and connective tissue, This can also be made in a slow cooker set on high for 30 minutes, then turned down to low for the day, oven cooking time will vary depending on the size of your roast -- I have made this in the past, and it is very good! :)
Over the year's people have called me Simpy, hence the recipe name. About 10 years ago, I have never heard of Carnitas, I had it one time in a restaurant and wanted to make it all the time. I found out how easy it was and just put my own twist on it. This is a very easy dish to make and very delicious.
New to slow cooking, I recently came across this recipe while perusing a cookbook from Mom's collection. Though I have not tried this yet, I'm keeping it here safe for when the time comes. I'm guessing that the honey mustard can be replaced with a combination of equal parts dijon mustard and honey.
This is so simple, it's almost a non-recipe, but so delicious I had to submit it. I came up with it one day when I wanted to do something different with a pork tenderloin. It was such a hit, it became a family favorite, replacing the pallid-by-comparison taco meat. It works just as well with boneless chicken or beef. It's very popular at potlucks and get-togethers, also. Pork weight is an estimate...I just use a good-sized roast. This is also a good recipe for OAMC, as you can cook and shred, then package the meat for later use.
These have to be, hands down, the BEST meal I have EVER made in a crock pot. I borrowed a friend's crock pot one weekend and made this for my honey. Low and behold, I got a crock pot for my next birthday along with a request for this recipe to be the first thing I made. I really wish I know where I got the recipe from because I would LOVE to give credit for it. I beg of you, do yourself a favor and try this. You will NOT regret it. Let me know what you think!!
I adopted this recipe from a very sweet chef: CBW. "My mom found this in a TOH magazine and passed the recipe on to me (well, I begged her for it after she made it!(=) I love good crock pot recipes and this one is no exception. There are some other enchilada recipes on here, but this one was a little different, so, I decided to add it to the database! I hope you'll enjoy it, too!"
This is a rather unusual recipe that I came up with using the crockpot with outstanding results. You can serve this up alone, in taco shells, or soft tortillas...any way, the result is great! Nopalitos (cactus pieces) have a flavor that is all their own, but can be kind of like a mild artichoke flavor and if it is spiced in the jar, can have a little green chile taste. You can get the nopalitos in the Mexican section of your supermarket or any Mexican grocer.
Gumbo you can make on a work day. I prepare all ingredients the night before. Put everything except water and shrimp together and refrigerate. In the morning, put ingredients in the crock pot and add water.
Be patient with the roux, it takes time. If you burn it, you will ruin your gumbo.
An easy recipe that produces tender pork chops with a wonderful gravy, I used a 3/4-inch thick center cut pork chops and browned them first, you may increase the amount of pork chops and double the sauce recipe, this can also be made in the oven for a shorter time :)
This recipe is a sort of "stone soup." I dug around in the fridge and added whatever I could find. I was pretty impressed with the end result. It's very versatile as you can add pretty much any veggie to it.
