Let’s get this disclaimer out of the way straight away: I was not wholly convinced when Jowa said she wanted a slow cooker/Crock Pot.
Perhaps it was the suspicion that I faced a future of flavourless stews that put me off. But then again I could see the logic in creating delicious dishes all in one pot and still having time to play with the kids.
So the Crock Pot arrived and our experiments have begun. First up – pork loin with zucchini and carrots in a tangy orange juice braise.
Okay, I’m not going to bother with the recipe at the moment because, while it has promise, we need to improve it (cutting down on the orange juice and adding some ginger and spice I suspect).
But I’m not deterred. In fact I’m kinda excited to experiment in with our very own take on Slow Food so to speak. So, before I scour the Net looking for new recipes, I thought I’d ask the Gastrokid community for recipe ideas?
Let me know and I’ll get slow cooking.
