CROCK POT SPICY PORK TENDERLOIN

Crock Pot Spicy Pork TenderloinThis recipe for Crock Pot Spicy Pork Tenderloin gets so tender in the crock pot it just falls apart.  I love pork served with any meal.  You can add more or less spice to suit your taste in this one. A great dish to serve with just about any side dish you and your family like and so easy in the crock pot.  We love it with Southern green beans and potatoes and skillet fried corn.

1 (2 -3 pound) pork tenderloin

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup ketchup

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup water

several drops hot sauce or pinch of cayenne

1/4 cup butter or margarine, or 4 tablespoons or half a stick, melted

Place your tenderloin in the crockpot.  Whisk together all the remaining ingredients and pour over tenderloin.  Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5.  Serve sauce from pot over meat and garnish with extra chopped green onions.   Makes 6 to 8 servings depending on size of your tenderloin. Enjoy!

CROCK POT BLACK BEAN SOUP

Crock Pot Black Bean Soup -TSLC

This hearty, healthy black bean soup is easily made in the crock pot or on top of the stove.  It makes a lot and freezes well.  I use black beans in dips, too.  They make a great soup served with cornbread.

1 pound package dried black beans

2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth (can use beef broth or 1 can of each)

2 cups water

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 green bell pepper, finely chopped (could use jalapeno or chili pepper)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 ham bone or 1 cup cooked ham (could use salt pork or bacon, too)

2 bay leaves

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Pinch of cayenne or few drops of hot sauce

Wash beans and check to make sure there are not any bad ones in the package.  Cover with water and soak overnight. Next morning, rinse the beans and put in crock pot. Add chicken broth, water, onion, green pepper, garlic, seasoning meat (whatever kind you are using), bay leaves, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper, hot sauce or cayenne.  Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high 4 to 5 hours.  If cooking on top of the stove, bring to low boil and cook until beans are tender.  If you like thicker beans you can remove some and mash up and return to pot or crock pot.  Garnish with salsa, sour cream, green onions and cheese or whatever you like. Makes about 2 quarts. I make this in my 3 quart crock pot and it is about 3/4 full.  Enjoy!

Note:  You can add corn and tomatoes with green chilis to the pot or add them later if you don’t want them in the entire amount. I like to divide the beans up in separate containers and freeze some for dips or to use in other soups.   You could make half this recipe, too.

GREEN BEANS AND POTATOES

Green Beans and Potatoes - TSLCOne of my favorite side dishes is green beans cooked with potatoes.  I grew up on this dish.  I remember when my mother cooked fresh green beans straight from the garden with new potatoes seasoned with a ham hock and we could not get enough.  They were just that good!

2 pounds fresh, frozen or canned green beans (If fresh, remove ends and break into pieces and wash the beans)

6 or 7 red potatoes, cut in pieces (I have made this using any kind of potatoes)

1 to 2  cups chicken broth or 1 (14.5 ounce) can (You don’t have to use the chicken broth. I just think it makes them better)

1 ham hock (Can use cooked ham, bacon, pork jowl or salt pork about a half cup, chopped)

2 to 3 cups water

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup finely diced onion (Optional)

1 teaspoon minced garlic (Optional)

Combine all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, then turn to medium low and cook about 1 1/2 hours until potatoes are done and water has cooked down.  You can also do this in the crockpot and let cook on low 6 to 7 hours or high 4 hours.

Note:  You can add a couple teaspoons bacon drippings if you are just using ham. This will add flavor to the beans.

Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

HOMEMADE CROCK POT APPLESAUCE

Homemade Crock Pot Applesauce - TSLC

This homemade appleasauce is so much better than the bought.  It is great in recipes for muffins, pancakes and cakes, too.  You can increase or decrease the spices to suit yourself.

10 medium sized apples, peeled and cored, cut up in pieces (I used Red Delicious for this one but you could use about any kind of apple)

1 cup water

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

2 to 3 tablespoons honey

Place apples in crock pot. Mix together water, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom and honey with a wire whisk.  Pour over apples.  Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high 4 hours. Great as a side dish for any meal. Will keep at least two weeks or longer in the fridge. Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.  Enjoy!

(Note:  You can mash up the apples in the cooked sauce if you want to make it smoother. We like it chunky and I like the chunky better for using in recipes.)
