Slow cooker meals, as many of us might know, are perfect for the on-the-go woman! You can set it on low or high and go about your day is normal.
The day that I decided to make a slow-cooker meal was the night of a pretty large snow storm up in northern Wisconsin. My husband was busy snow-blowing and snow-plowing for work. I wanted to make him a meal that smelled fantastic and would comfort him after a long day.
Prep time = 10 minutes
Cook time = 8 hours on low/4 hours on high
Braised Ginger Cranberry Pork Roast
- 2 or 3 lb pork loin or roast
- Half of a medium sweet onion; sliced
- 1 1/2 cups of a Sesame Ginger marinade (the brand doesn't matter, pick your favorite)
- 1 TBSP of minced ginger
- 1 cup of whole cranberries (if you can't find whole cranberries try using canned whole cranberries)
- 2 TBSP of brown sugar
- Salt and pepper
Combine all the ingredients into the slow cooker and walk away! The internal temperature of the pork should be 160. Set it on low for 8 hours if you are heading off to work or set it on high for 4 hours if you have errands to complete. Let the smell take over your kitchen. It's almost heavenly!
