Pork chops were very tender. but"sauce" was a little salty to suit our tastes. In fairness to the recipe, I was late getting back from church and then company came by so it cooked down a little too much to suit me, but I will try it again. Simple and delicious!

Simple pulled pork. I use about 2 lb pork loin. Place it fat side down in crockpot. DO NOT TRIM. The fat keeps this moist while cooking. Add 1/4 cup vinegar (helps break down the fat) and 2 cups water to the crock and cook on high for 4 hrs or until pork breaks apart easy and is cooked through. Drain off the liquid and shred the pork with 2 forks (most the time it simply falls apart). Add your choice of BBQ sauce, my family likes Sonny's Sweet BBQ. I use about 1 1/2 cups sauce use more of less depending on how messy you like your pork. Serve on buns or with pita bread. Also make a great dip for scoop style chips.

This past weekend, I made a crock full of navy beans, with smoked pork jowl, onions, garlic, celery, carrot, pepper & coleman's mustard and a ham bone. I put it in my trunk to take to church for our pot luck and wouldn't you know I had that pot of beans all over my trunk. They sure smelled good but now I have to get my trunk detailed.

Needless to say I was pretty disappointed.......

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter with better crock pot experiences!

:)

My latest was a pork butt covered with water, 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, 1/2 cup of salsa verde and one small can of diced green chilies (not hot) but you could if you wanted to. Cooked for 8-9 hours. Removed pork roast and separated the fat and the meat and pulled the meat and put it back in the pot. Put in the fridge overnight and remove the layer of fat. Put it back on high and add 1 diced onion, 1 package of ready shredded cabbage/carrots- the cole slaw mix. Cook on high for at least an hour. I served this with either rice, mashed/boiled mashed potatoes for my guys and I had mashed cauliflower.

Yum I LOVE ham in split pea soup! I always put leftover ham in it.

Also another favorite is smoke turkey - in collards or in split pea soup.

Ham Split Pea Soup


Ingredients

1 16-ounce package dried split peas
1 leftover ham bone with meat left on it
7 cup water
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
3 sprigs fresh thyme, stemmed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

1. Add all ingredients to the Crock-Pot® slow cooker.
2. Cover; cook on Low 10-12 hours or High 5-6 hours.

Serves: 6-8
Size: 3-6 quart

Everyone really liked this one. I did cut up a little bit of ham into chunks and added that too. You do NOT need to add any salt whatsoever. I cooked it on the High setting. When it was time to eat it was watery looking so I kinda mashed the split peas with the serving spoon to get it to the consistency I wanted. It was super delicious!!

How spicy was it (since you used the whole can)? I like spicy, but, not sure about the whole can . . . if you rated it mild, medium, or hot (like salsa) would you say it was hot?

Slow-cooker beer-braised pork and black bean soup!

I adapted from CL - i used a whole can of chopped canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce!

http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1824682&ff=1

Ingredients

* 2 12-ounce bottles of beer (preferably lager)
* 1 chopped canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, plus adobo sauce
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 pound dried black beans, rinsed
* 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork butt (pork shoulder)
* Kosher salt



Directions
In the bowl of a slow cooker, combine the beer, 3 cups water, the chilies, adobo sauce, cumin, onion, beans, pork, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Set the slow cooker to high and cook, covered, until the beans are tender and the pork pulls apart easily, 4 to 5 1/2 hours. Using a fork, separate the pork into large pieces. Divide among individual bowls and top with the sour cream

Oh it was awesome. I don't think I added extra water, but there was enough in the frozen veggies to dilute the salt in the seasoning pack. I will for sure make this again.

Another experiment waiting for me on the counter when I get home from work this afternoon...

2 pork tenderloin slices, about 1 inch thick
half a bag of frozen stir fry veggies
1 packet of broccoli stir fry seasoning (in the ethnic foods sections)

I put it on low because I've had pork get too tough in a crock pot on high all day.
It smelled good when I put it together last night, so I hope it turns out. :)

Adapt and overcome.

I could have put this under the beef topics as well, but I made it with pork sausage, so here it is..

1 can of cream of mushroom soup (low sodium)
1/2 can of water
1 lb frozen ground sausage (like Jimmy Dean's)
Hand full of bread crumbs (to thicken)

Spices to taste:
onion salt
onion flakes
garlic powder


I just threw the sausage and soup in the crock pot in the morning... still frozen. UGH!!! bad idea.

I forget how greasy sausage is, and there's no way to separate that grease from the soup once it's cooking. So instead of putting the sausage in there frozen (soo easy!), brown it first then add it. Or next time I'll try a non-ground sausage.

Add the water and bread crumbs later and after about 6 hours, add the spices to taste.

I was just going to add the rice into the crock pot, but we didn't know when we'd be eating Saturday night, so I just cooked in one the stove and then spooned some of the sausage mixture on top. It was thick but not too thick and so good.

I added some fresh veggies on the side. I'm assuming the salt content is pretty high because of the sausage (and I love onion salt... next time just half an onion instead).

Turned out great, even though I thought about the greasy fat while I was eating it, but the bread crumbs made it not runny and it didn't separate.

My boyfriend loved it on cellophane noodles at work for lunch the next day, too.

Adapt and overcome.

Yum!

I make my own BBQ sauce with tomato, molasses, vinegar, and mustard. I avoid additives and artificial sweeteners (they make you hungrier and cause weight gain); glutamates like MSG, natural flavors, and aspartame; and high fructose corn syrup. If you buy Grandma's molasses there is a BBQ recipe on the label. And on the Grandma's website. I don't add the Worcestshire sauce though; it's high salt and really not needed.

My favorite pulled pork recipe. This is the original recipe but when I make it I cut way back on the sauce in order to cut calories. I like Sweet Baby Ray's original or honey BBQ but use your own favorite!



allrecipes.com/Recipe/Slow-Cooker-Pulled-P
ork/Detail.aspx


1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer
1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted

Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.

Easter Ham in a Crockpot
with Fruited Cranberry Sauce
adapted from Good Cheap Eats

one large half ham, that fits in your largest crockpot
1 cup apple juice or cider
1/2 can whole berry cranberry sauce - or the other kind, your preference
1/2 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained
all of the juice from the canned pineapple
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Place ham, cut side down into crockpot. Stir canned cranberry sauce, pineapple, apple juice, and pineapple juice together and pour over the ham. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove ham from crockpot and place in roasting pan, on its side.

Heat the oven to 375°. Combine brown sugar, Dijon mustard, ground cloves, and enough of the juices from the crockpot to create a paste. Spread paste over ham. Place in hot oven to glaze, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve.

Combine the remaining cranberry, pineapple, a can of drained mandarin oranges, and 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger if you like ginger. Variation: add fresh ginger, and/or lemon and orange zest in it; they are really good if you have them. Chill well, can be made several days ahead. (I always make mine ahead and add the mandarin orange juice to the crock pot with the ham.) Serve fruited cranberry sauce with the ham.

Hungarian Crockpot Cabbage Rolls Recipe
southernfood.about.com/od/crockpotgroundbe
ef/r/bl12c2.htm

I omit the pork, use beef instead, and simply wilt the leaves by running hot water from the tap over them.

Cabbage rolls are great for rural North America as many farmers raise hogs for their own use, and have lots of ground pork in the freezer, and have cabbage rolls in their gardens.

Copied courtesy of our own SHARON10002:

Baked Ziti with Pepperoni, Mushrooms, and Ricotta
Source: Slow Cooker Revolution

2 T extra virgin olive Oil
2 onions, minced
10 oz white mushrooms, sliced thin
1 small green pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 t dried oregano
28 oz rushed tomatoes
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz ziti
6 oz sliced pepperoni
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
15 oz tomato sauce
Hot water, as needed
1 cup Ricotta cheese
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh, basil,chopped (optional)

Heat oil in lg pot over medium high heat until shimmering. Add onions, mushrooms, pepper, garlic, and oregano, and cook until vegetables are softened and lightly browned - about 8 -10 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes, and cream, and simmer until thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in ziti, pepperoni, and salt and pepper.

Transfer mixture to slow cooker and spread tomato sauce evenly over pasta. Cover and cook until pasta is tender, about 3 hours on high.

Gently stir pasta, add hot water as needed to loosen sauce consistency. Dollop spoonfuls or ricotta over casserole, then sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover and let sit until cheese is melted, about 5 - 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped basil and serve.

Review:
This was good. My husband liked it very much and thanked me for making it. I think kids would love this too. Was fairly easy to do, and quick cooking time in the crock-pot.

I am making ham & beans, with white (Great Northern) beans, will post the recipe (my own) when it's done. This is one of those things I cook-as-I-go and will have to measure and write things down in order to come up with a recipe, measure at the end to know how much it makes, etc. I am batchcooking, with 4 cups dried beans, and decided to make ALL the beans into white beans & ham. Beans and soup freeze well, and I really don't use Great Northern for anything else, so decided to go for it.

I have black beans soaking to make this recipe:

I recently tried this Asian Pork Roast from a book I have from Reynolds Foil. It called for using one of the slow-cooker liners but I haven't been able to find them in our area so I just sprayed the crockpot with a light coating of non-stick cooking spray. We don't like really spicy foods in my family but this had a really nice taste.

1 Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner
2 pounds pork tenderloin roast
3/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup honey roast flavored peanut butter
2 tablespoons each soy sauce and sesame oil
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
Hot cooked rice
1/4 cup cashews, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped green onion

OPEN slow cooker liner and place it inside a 5- to 6 1/2-quart slow cooker bowl. Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim of bowl.
PLACE pork in slow cooker liner. Mix salsa, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, cayenne pepper and garlic. Pour over pork. Place lid on slow cooker.
COOK on LOW for 5 to 6 hours OR on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or until meat thermometer inserted in pork reaches 160°F.
CAREFULLY remove lid to allow steam to escape. Spoon rice onto serving platter. Remove pork from slow cooker using slotted spoon and place on top of rice. Gently stir sauce with plastic or wooden spoon; spoon sauce over pork. Sprinkle with cashews and green onions. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside. Cool slow cooker completely; remove liner and toss.
Number of servings based on 3 oz. cooked tenderloin per serving.

Here's the recipe for tonight's dinner.

Pork Roast over Sweet Potatoes for the Crock Pot

Prep Time: 30 mins

2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 lbs pork loin roast, boneless
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (1/2 inch cubes)
1 cup chicken broth

Directions:
Combine first 6 ingredients.

Rub into pork.

Put potatoes in the crock pot.

Place pork on top of potatoes.

Pour broth over all.

Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

Servings: 9

Note: In an effort to save time and with all the reviews regarding the issue with the sweet potatoes turning to mush, I made the pork alone. Based on other's reviews, I also applied the rub & seared the pork on the stove top in a skillet prior to placing in the crock pot. This makes for a more appealing finished dish , deeper color, and more flavor, and brings up the flavors of the herbs. However, this choice is up to you, and your time factor.

Lastly, I used apple cider in place of stock in previous dishes, so I used this in this dish with great results. I recommend trying it if you haven't done so. It makes a great sauce to pour over the finished dish (and whatever you make to accompany it). I served it with Green Beans with Caramelized Onions, and included that recipe below. I did not have sweet potatoes; I used Yukon Gold potatoes and cooked them separately, and spooned reduced sauce over them. You could use the sweet potatoes and try cutting them into bigger pieces, and adding them for the last hour or so.

Served with the following:
Green Beans with Carmelized Onions
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 40 mins

1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 lb green beans, trimmed

Directions:

Heat oil and butter in small skillet over medium heat, add onion.

Cook over low heat until onions are golden and tender, about 20 minutes.

Cook green beans in boiling water for 5-7 minutes or until tender.

Drain, place in bowl, and add onions. Toss well, to coat with oil and butter and to distribute onions well.

Servings:4

Note: I cook my green beans on high power for 3 minutes in microwave, and then add to large skillet along with 1 teaspoon olive oil - just enough to lightly coat the beans. I pan roast them for about 5 minutes over medium high heat, and then added the onions. Mixed all together and served. The pan roasting brings out a nice flavor to the beans. Just a suggestion.

Good dinner emoticon
