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.

4 pork steaks, approx 1/2-inch thick 

1 1/2 tbsp canola oil
3/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1 can (16-oz) peach slices
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp instant beef bouillon granules
Hot cooked rice
1/4 cup cold water
2 tbsp cornstarch

Trim any excess fat from the pork steaks. Heat the canola oil in large skillet and brown the steaks on both sides in the skillet. Sprinkle the basil, salt, and pepper onto the steaks.

Drain the peach slices; reserve the syrup. Place the peach slices in the crockpot or slow cooker. Place the steaks atop the peaches.

Combine the reserved peach syrup, vinegar, and bouillon granules and pour the mixture over the steaks. Add the lid to the cooker and cook on low setting for approximately 8 hours.

On a warm serving platter, arrange the steaks and peaches over the hot cooked rice and keep warm.

Skim excess fat from cooking liquid. In a saucepan, blend the cold water into the cornstarch until smooth then stir in the hot liquid. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Serve the gravy with the steaks.

Yield: 4 servings
