    July's Summer Slow Cooking Challenge

    July's Summer Slow Cooking Challenge



    July's Summer Slow Cooking Challenge-ribbon-jpg

    Summer time is the perfect time to bring out your slow cooker. You can enjoy the nice, warm weather while something delicious is cooking in your cooker! Or, if you're on the other side of the equator, you can whip up something comforting and delicious for those cooler days of winter.

    July's recipe challenge is to make a dish in your slow cooker! Don't have a slow cooker, you say? Well, how about taking out your Dutch oven and doing a nice, slow braised dish instead?



    To enter the challenge, simply reply to this post with the recipe you plan on making. Once you make it, take a photo of your dish, post the recipe in the "Monthly Recipe Challenge" forum, and tell us about the recipe you chose. Did you love it or hate it? Did it need something different? Next time you make it would you change anything?

    No matter how the dish turns out, we will have a lot of fun trying new ingredients, testing our palates, and exploring new cooking adventures together.

    Henny a Choko is a green funny shaped vegetable also known as Chayote a member of the Gourd family they have a watery green flesh great for roasting, steaming, casseroles, soup
    a Swede is a bit like a potato with a cream coloured flesh used for soups, casseroles and can be just steamed. It I from the cabbage family and gets mixed up with the turnip

    Chayote I know, the swede looks like a turnip.
    We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books, But civilized man cannot live without cooks.

    Ooooh, durn it, I didn't save any pictures of it and it was snarfed up almost immediately! LOL! But I invented this a couple nights ago, and it was luscious! I have been buying the bulk meats from CostCo - and the pork was $2.99 a pound... used a 2 or so lb chunk of meat.

    ~2 lbs of Pork Loin, or some sort of Pork Roast
    3 c chicken broth (bouillon broth)
    1/3 c Balsamic Vinegar
    2 T Worchestershire Sauce
    Lotsa minced garlic
    Few red pepper flakes, if you prefer a little heat
    2 T honey or maple syrup (to cut the vinegar taste)

    Crock pot for 4 hours on High or 8 hours on low. Shred, leave in broth, served over jasmine rice. (For me, it was more than salty enough, but you may wish to S&P to taste.)
    It made for some GREAT sandwiches the next day, just squeeze the broth out of it or it made one sandwich kinda soggy. LOL!
