When I know I won't have time to spend in the kitchen at the end of the day, I use my crock pot to do the work for me. Although it takes some time to shred the pork and then put it into the oven, it's so easy and well worth it. It's not a lot of fuss and my family thinks this is heaven. As my children called it, "Killer" and "Stupid good!"
I found this recipe on the web somewhere and decided to try it. It is absolutely wonderful and the meat just falls off the bones. As my husband describes it "they are succulent!" This is a must in our family at least every other week!
A creamy, very chunky, satisfying chowder. This soup is made in the slow cooker, but no reason why you couldn't cook it stove top following the same sequence. The recipe calls for just clams and juice, but I also toss in 3-4 ounces of fish and/or seafood if it is available...you might have to add a bit of extra liquid if it is too thick. I also use cut up turkey bacon instead of pork bacon for even lower fat. Freezes well.
A friend shared this recipe with me, and it's always a hit. Sometimes I have trouble finding cream of onion soup, but cream of mushroom works almost as well. I use a liner for the slow cooker to make clean-up easier.
This is a chowder that uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand, so it is quick and easy to throw together before work, and come home to on a nice fall evening. Relatively easy to double as well for extra large families or get togethers.
I've been making this soup for a while and my family just loves it. Its easier
than making it the old way. I make it in the Crock Pot and let it go all day.
Its hardy and delicious and takes no time to put together.
