    Slow Cooker Passion

    There's 10" of snow outside here in western NC. I'm looking at a new bike I won't be able to break in for some time, and the one thing that's easing the pain is a solid crock pot recipe I just discovered.

    1 lb boneless pork loin roast, cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 1/4 cups Old El PasoŽ Thick 'n Chunky salsa (from 24-oz jar)
    1 can (4.5 oz) Old El PasoŽ chopped green chiles, drained
    1 can (15 oz) ProgressoŽ black beans, drained, rinsed
    1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz), if desired

    In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix pork, salsa and chiles.
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
    Stir in beans. Cover; cook on Low heat setting about 5 minutes or until beans are hot. Sprinkle with cheese.

    This may be another rough winter so I think we all could benefit from posting up some winter time blue's comfort food ideas.

    Ribs are easy:

    Pork or Beef rack of ribs
    Sweet baby rays bbq sauce to just cover
    low 8 hours

    Serve with boiled red potatoes, or mashed if you prefer.

    So is chili

    black beans
    28oz can of tomatoes (or fresh diced if you prefer)
    various vegetables and meat if you like (meat should be pre-browned)
    chili powder, cumin, salt to taste
    low 8 hours

    Top with shredded cheese and fresh green onion. Serve with corn bread.

    Make sure you have proper ventilation in your houses with all of those bean and chili recipes.

    Dr Willy - do you cut the pork loin into 1" slices or is that 1" cubes? I have a frozen pork loin and we just got a slow cooker. Wondering if I can just chuck it in there frozen with some sauce and veggies.

    i cooked an entire pork roast in mine over the weekend and will have pulled pork in some form for a few days. No cutting but it would probably go quicker if you cut it up smaller. I cooked mine overnight with 12 hours on low and it just fell apart like a good smoked meat.

    You could do that, chop it with a spatula and mix it up when it's done. I've done it that way in the past.

    This time I cut 1/2x 1" pork chops and it went faster.
