CROCK POT, a tool that can make our lives so much easier....
I am learning more and more that I do not take enough of an advantage of
"The Crock pot." Sometimes I find or am given a recipe that I just love!! I love it of course for its convenience but it just makes some things oh, so good. My son,Jason gave me a recipe recently.I do not know where he got it but it is "A Keeper." I wanted to share it with you all. I know at times we find ourselves so busy and don't know where we will have the time to make a really good meal. WAALA!! The Crock Pot! I tell you, if you give this a try, you will have something to pull out of your recipes that will save you so much time and trouble and you will get oooh, and awwws from all who eat at your table, the table at church or anywhere there is a table with food on it. I give them a high 5.
31/2 TO 4 POUND PORK ROAST
16 OZS. ROOT BEER
SLICES OF GARLIC
SALT AND PEPPER
Take your pork roast, salt and pepper as you like. I didn't put pepper on mine. Cut little slits in the roast and place a slice of garlic in each. Put as many slits as you like, depending on how much garlic you like.
Place the roast in the Crock Pot and then pour the 16 ozs. of Root Beer over it. Cover with lid. I cooked on low for 12-13 hours on low but was not ready to eat it. So I then put it on warm for a couple more hours. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!
I bought a bottle of Bar B Q sauce that we liked. I just poured it into a bowl and heated in the microwave. Then those who wanted the sauce could have it and those who did not, didn't have to have it own their food. Personally, it was so good, it really didn't require the Bar B Q sauce.
My son used this as Pulled Pork but I used it as a roast. I made some cold slaw and boiled some red potatoes. Add bread of your choice. This is just a great meal. we had Manderian Orange cake, and sweet tea. grandma
P.S. I know that I will be making this many, many more times. I am looking forward to trying Chicken and beef this same way. I hope it turns out as good.
