See below my Easy Crock-Pot Pork recipe on how to enter My Favorite Things Giveaway!
One of my easy go-to meals is a crock-pot creation I came up with years ago. It's so easy to make and is a great dinner for a cold night. It combines a pork loin, potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery in a yummy wine sauce. I usually serve it over top of rice or noodles.
Quick and Easy Crock-Pot Pork Dinner (a Hezzi-D original)
2 pound pork loin
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 onion, sliced
1/2 c. dry white wine
2 c. low sodium chicken broth
2 t. black pepper, divided
1 t. salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1 t. thyme
1. Turn the crock-pot on low. Pour white wine and chicken broth into the pot.
2. Rub the pork loin with 1 t. black pepper, salt, and minced garlic. Place in the bottom of the crock-pot.
3. Put the potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions into the broth around the pork. If it won't all fit, place some of the vegetables on top of the pork loin. Sprinkle with thyme, paprika, and remaining black pepper.
4. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, stirring once after a few hours to get all the vegetables into the broth. Serve over top of rice or noodles.
