STEP BY STEP CROCK POT RECIPE

Post by Deedee on Wed Sep 16, 2009 8:05 pm

OKAY HERE IS WHAT i DID...I COOKED A PORK LOIN ROAST TONIGHT AND i TOOK PHOTOS OF THE ENTIRE PROCESS...

I STARTED WITH MY TRUSTY CROCK POT, ITS OLD, BUT IT IS A GREAT ONE, IT HAS 5 HEAT SETTINGS, BUT FOR THIS MEAL i STUCK IT ON THE MEDIUM ONE.
__________________________________________________________


THIS IS A PORK TENDERLOIN ROAST...EXCELLENT CUT OF MEAT, NO FAT, REAL TENDER, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS ONE!!
__________________________________________________________



IT WAS STILL ABOUT HALF FROZEN WHEN I STUCK IT IN...NOT TO WORRY, THE CROCK POT WILL DO THE TRICK!
___________________________________________________________

ABOUT 1/4 CUP OF WATER

AND THEN LEAVE IT ALONE FOR A COUPLE HOURS

___________________________________________________________


TWO HOURS LATER

THE MEAT IS PRETTY MUCH COOKED THROUGH AT THIS POINT, THE REST OF THE COOKING TIME JUST MAKES IT INCREDIBLY TENDER

SO I ADD POTATOES, ONIONS, MINCED GARLIC, CARROTS, RED BELL AND YELLOW BELL PEPPER, SALT AND PEPPER AND SOME MRS DASH
___________________________________________________________

TWO HOURS MORE

COOKED TO PERFECTION

AND VOILA!! AS YOU CAN SEE THIS MEAT IS TENDER ENOUGH TO CUT WITH A FORK!!!

NOPE...NO FAT, NOT EVEN ONE IOTA, WHAT YOU ARE SEEING IS THE MARINADE JUICES IN THE BAG....EVEN THE JUICE, AFTER IT COOKED HAD NO GREASE ON IT...NONE!


BUT THAT IS ONLY TRUE WITH A TENDERLOIN....I THINK ALL OTHER PORK WILL HAVE FAT ON IT!

no i am serious, pork tenderloin has no fat on it. This particular brand is marinaded, and I think that is what is showing up on the picture, cuz there is no fat on it before or after cooking. But the marinade is kind of colored funny. Or possibly the meat has coloration issues. But as far as fat goes, this is the piece for a diet conscious person.

let me change that, just so I don't get 10,000 angry posts, the fat on a tenderloin is MINIMAL!!!!

i can't remember, when Ldl511 comes on here, she'll be able to tell ya, she's good at remembering price of things. I will tell you it's NOT a cheap piece of meat. But Hormell has the $1.00 off coupons in the magazines ALL THE TIME!

same thing, except for the fact that that tenderloin was only 1 and a half pounds, so a pot roast would be larger (or not), you just adjust the cooking time to suit. If your crock has more than one heat setting you can adjust that as well.

Are you cooking it tomorrow?
I would leave it in the fridge overnight, or even on the counter, if your house doesn't get uncomfortably warm during the night. Well, actually the fridge is safer. Tomorrow about 12:30 or so, unwrap it, cut off all the visible fat you see, then stick it in the pot with about 1/4 cup water. Season it, not too much salt until you are almost done cooking because the crock pot's type heat will dry out the meat if you use too much salt. But I like to put garlic and such on it when it first starts cooking. After about 2 and a half hours or even three hours, stick your potatoes and such in the pot. At that time you should be able to tell how close it is to being done. if it appears cooked through, then the last hour to two hours are what tenderizes it. And I mean it will just fall apart when you take a fork to it!
Does your pot have more than just one setting? If so start it out at medium high or medium.

lol - i just throw everything in the pot - frozen or not, close it up turn it on high and come back in 6 hrs - if i am going to be gone all day, medium for about 10 hrs.

also, did you know you can make pasta in there? put your sauce in throw in the dried pasta, put it on medium and walk away for 6-8 hrs. i tried this and was sooooo excited - it worked!

The crock pot I showed in the instructions has five different temp settings, you can actually biol water on the highest setting. So if yours has the temp settings like that, make sure its on medium!!

But yeah, like she says,....throw it in walk away and when your timer goes ding...its done!!!

That is what I like so much about it. it is virtually idiot proof!!!

Mine has a warm, medium and high setting - the warm is only for keeping things warm after it has been cooked. when i was working, i used the crock pot all the time. i still use it when i am going to be working in the yard all day and the last thing i want is to cook or wait for something to be cooked. Mine also has a glass lid and i can roast a chicken or those really cute little chickens (cornish game hens) and it actually browns the little buggers.

Like I said in another thread, if I had to choose only between my crock pot, my oven or my microwave, I would choose the crock pot!!!

Mine only has low and high. Im going to make it on Saturday. So Should I wait to take it out of the freezer until tomorrow, or is it okay to do it now? If it thaws that long in the fridge, will it make a mess? I should probably put so paper towels under it. Im one of those people that thaws it in water in the sink a few hours before I cook it, thats why I ask.
I was watching Emeril a few years ago, and he said that he likes to cut little pockets in his and slide cloves of garlic inside. I usually do that when I bake it in the oven. Do you think it would still taste awesome in the crock pot that way??
