As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I bought a bigger slow cooker to try and frugalise (is that a word?) some of the meals I’m used to making by reducing the fuel cost to cook them. Having made a few ‘easy’ meals with success I spotted some bargain pork this weekend in the Co-op and decided to get that instead of chicken this week.
Having struggled to find a cooking guide online for slow cookers and meat, I whacked it in on a bed of apple and carrot with a couple of inches of water, salt rubbed in the fatty bits in an attempt to make crackling post-slow cooking. 6hrs on high and we’re currently on the last 20 mins or so. I’ll let you know how it fares after I’ve whacked it in the oven.
Anyway, assuming I don’t poison everyone with the pork, here’s this week’s recipes:
- Sun 11th: ‘Roast’ pork with various veg, roasties & yorkshire pud
- Mon 12th Slow cooker jacket potatoes
- Tue 13th: Pork & courgette pasta
- Wed 14th: Pizza night (early because we’re camping)
- Thu 15th: Porky stew & dumplings
- Fri 16th: CAMPING!
- Sat 17th: CAMPING!
Ps. sod’s law having nearly done my pork I’ve just spotted the Slow Cooker Queen ‘Roast Pork with Crackling’
