Nothing too fancy to report from our kitchen today. We opted for an easy slow cooker meal which guaranteed minimal effort and plenty of leftovers. Fortunately, this is just the right time of year for a hearty and warm meal.
Crock pot cooking is so easy!
We tossed the following into the crock pot and cooked on low for about 10 hours:
- medium sized pork shoulder roast,
- 4 chopped carrots
- 2 chopped yellow onions
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 5 new potatoes, halved
- 1 cup of homemade beef broth
- 2 cloves garlic
- salt and pepper
The meat and vegetables were super tender and flavorful straight out of the slow cooker but I had to have some cranberry sauce on the side since Thanksgiving is fast approaching. What I love about cranberry sauce is that it is both sweet and tart at the same time. The canned sauce was the perfect accompaniment to this hearty and savory meal!
