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 CABBAGE MEAL

2 lbs boneless pork chops

4 cups shredded green cabbage

dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1/8 tsp allspice
1/2 cup beef OR vegetable broth
2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick

Place the chops in a 4 to 5-quart slow cooker or crockpot.  Layer in the following order over the chops: onions, parsley, cabbage.

Combine the slat, pepper, caraway seeds, and allspice; sprinkle over the cabbage.

Pour the broth overall.

Cover and cook on low setting 5 to 6 hours.

Approximately 30 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the apples slices over the top of the mixture.
