Cooking with a crock-pot is probably the easiest thing I have ever done. The whole hands-on process takes about 15 minutes and you need to try pretty hard to mess it up. We like to cook crock-pot meals on days when I work during the day and Jason works at night and needs to take a lunch.
Most of my crock-pot meals are just thrown together and don’t follow a recipe; I usually use whatever we have lying around.
-2 pounds red potatoes, halved
-4 whole carrots, chunked
-1 large white onion, diced
-2 large zucchinis, cut into discs
-3 pork chops (a little more than 1 pound)
-1 tsp ground cloves
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp oregano
- Add about 1/2 the vegetables to the crockpot; add the pork chops in a layer and cover with seasonings. Top with the remaining vegetables. Add about 1/2 cup of water. You can add more if you would like, or you can add some later on.
- Cook on low for 7-8 hours. I usually check on it 1/2 way though to see how it is looking. As long as the pork reads 165F (which is will FOR SURE after 7 hours!) it is done. The longer you cook it the more the flavors blend together.
