In fact, I'm the complete opposite. I “cook” by meticulously reading and following recipes line by line. I’m also the girl that writes my grocery list in chronological order of what I will hit in the grocery store first to last. OCD anyone?
Needless to say, I don't "wing" recipes. However, Sunday I had some pork chops in my freezer I needed to cook, but I was too tired from my busy weekend to go to the store. Instead, I grabbed a few items from my pantry that I hoped would suffice. I threw the ingredients into my Slow Cooker (a gift from God) and five hours later, a yumm-o meal was prepared. Literally the meat was falling off the bone, so I thought I would share this very basic slow cooker recipe yours truly created:
1. Season 1.5 lb of bone-in pork chops with cracked pepper and garlic powder.
2. Pour 2 Lipton Onion Mushroom Soup Mix contents into large bowl and coat pork chops (acts as a breading)
3. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat and brown pork chops. Set aside.
4. In slow cooker, whisk the carmelized onion and reduced sodium cream of mushroom soups together, add your browned pork chops, cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
5. Serve over brown or white rice.
Ta-da! you have yourself a home cooked meal on the cheap:
|I slow boiled french cut green beans with diced ham as a side. Seasoned with pepper, wine & garlic seasoning and about 1 tbsp of margarine.|
If you test this out, let me know what you think!
