I have a 2lb pork loin roast in my refrigerator and the man won’t be home from work for at least 6 more hours. I was thinking about putting it in the crock pot and letting it cook for the day but I’m not sure what I should do with it. I don’t have too many ingredients and no fresh vegetables but I may have some canned green beans and corn though…maybe a soup in there but I’m not sure.. possibly some bbq sauce… Lol what do I do??
I cook pork loin in the crock pot sometimes and it’s really good!
Heat a heavy pot on medium-high and brown the meat in some butter on all sides. Then put it in the crock-pot. In the same pot, cook some finely chopped onions til soft, then drop in some chopped garlic and cook for about a minute. Put that in the crock pot. If you have some fresh or dried thyme put some in along with a couple of rosemary leaves. If you have some chicken broth put in about 2 cups. (Bouillon cubes with 2 cups of water will work, too.) If you have any white wine, substitute a cup of wine for a cup of chicken broth. If you don’t have chicken broth, bouillon or wine, use 1 cup of water and the meat will make its own broth. Cover and cook on high 4-6 hours til the meat shreds easily with a fork. Then serve over rice or mashed potatoes.
EDIT: Oh, no, you don’t want to drain the juice! The juice is the best part! It’s juicy and meaty and moistens the meat. But, adding a can of cream of mushroom soup would be good, too. I’ve done that, also, but I use the juice with the soup instead of milk or water–it’s delicious.
