WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

PORK AND BLACK-EYED PEAS STEW

1 (approximately 2 lb) pork tenderloin, large diced
1 can (15-oz) black-eyed peas
2 cans (14.5-oz each) stewed tomatoes with onions and peppers
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
2 cups homemade or canned vegetable stock
1 tbsp creole seasoning

In a slow cooker or crockpot (about 5-quart size), combine the cut up pork, peas, tomatoes, and bell pepper.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the rice with the stock and seasoning; pour over the ingredients in the cooker.  Stir to mix thoroughly.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low for approximately 5 hours.

Serve with cornbread or a whole-grain crusty bread.
