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 MARENGO

2 lbs boneless pork shoulder, cubed 

1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2 tbsp canola oil
1 can (16-oz) diced tomatoes
1 tsp instant chicken bouillon granules
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
dash of pepper
1 can (3-oz)chopped mushrooms, drained
1/3 cup cold water
3 tbsp flour
Hot cooked rice for 6 to 8 servings

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil; add the pork and onion. Cook until the meat is browned on all sides. Drain well and transfer to the crockpot or slowcooker.

In the same skillet combine the undrained tomatoes, bouillon granules, and spices. Stir mixture together, scraping browned bits from bottom of skillet. Pour the mixture over the pork in the cooker. Add lid to cooker and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours. Turn heat up to high. Drain the mushrooms and stir into the cooker.

Slowly blend the cold water into the flour until smooth; stir into the pork mixture. Cook, uncovered, on high setting until thickened, around 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

To serve, place the pork mixture over the hot cooked rice. Sprinkle with some chopped parsley for garnish, if desired.
