As I write this, Labor Day is winding down. It has been a rather low-key day here, except that I have been busy with cooking for the adult day care at our church. I will take the food I have prepared to church around 8:30 tomorrow morning. Then, after playing bridge at the Senior Center, I will return to have lunch with the group, pick up my things, and head out for a haircut! Busy day ahead tomorrow!
It will be a day or two before today's recipes, though. Instead, I want to share with you a recipe for the slow-cooker, brought to mind by a conversation on another website. In fact, I prepared this the day our Muncho family came to visit. The aroma was wonderful as it cooked all day while I busied myself with other projects.
4 to 5 lb. pork loin roast
salt and pepper
1 clove garlic, sliced (We like garlic, so I used more.)
2 medium onions, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 whole clove
1 cup hot water
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
- Rub pork roast with salt and pepper. Make tiny slits in meat and insert slivers of garlic. Place roast in broiler pan; broil 15 to 20 minutes to remove excess fat.
- Put sliced onion in bottom of Crock Pot/Slow Cooker. Add roast and remaining ingredients.
- Cook on Low setting for 10 hours.
I have had this recipe for years, and I do not remember the source.
One of the advantages of this meal was that there were leftovers! Barbecue was really good the next day.:-) I have made my own sauce in times past, but used commercially prepared this time. With a coupon to pick up a bottle for only $1.00 from an organic market in our town, that was what I decided to use.
Of course, I have no pictures! Once everyone arrived, and we were ready for dinner, taking pictures was the farthest thing from my mind.:-)
On other matters, we finally have had some slow, steady rainfall earlier today. The Husband has planted the seeds for our fall crops (greens, root vegetables), so we hope there was enough rain to help those seeds grow!
While many of you may consider Labor Day the end of summer, it is difficult to think fall is with us here. The weather forecast mentions high temperatures into the low-nineties for this week! Not much like fall, is it?:-)
Thank you so much for reading. I appreciate your comments!
