Because I cook so much and can’t think of anything to write today, I thought I would post one of my recipes. I should video myself cooking it and put it on You Tube except I don’t have a video camera. So you will have to imagine me in my wheelchair making this recipe.
3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
2 TBL sugar (this is probably why they call for unsweetened apple juice.)
2 TBL dark soy sauce (or whatever soy sauce you have in the cupboard) I like dark because it is more flavorful. I use the Sushi Chef brand.
1 TBL rice wine vinegar (or whatever vinegar is laying around, though I wouldn’t use balsamic. I think it would change the flavor of the whole roast too much.
1 tsp ground (powdered) ginger
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper (I use freshly cracked pepper –yes, I am a pepper snob.)
Mix the above all together in a bowl.
1 boneless pork loin roast (about 3 lbs.) cut in half
Spray crock pot with olive oil spray or Pam or something
Throw the pork in the crock pot, throw the stuff in the bowl on top and coat all sides of the pork. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
About 1/2 hour before pork is done mix 7 1/2 tsp. of cornstarch with 3 TBL. of cold water until creamy smooth. Pour in pot and stir. This will thicken gravy. Cook another half hour and your done. We serve it on Jasmine rice. Yummy!!!
Next time I will post my slow cooker recipe for Rosemary cashew chicken. It is so good.
