When I awoke this morning it was 14 degrees!! Freezing weather prompts me to want to cook crock pot meals. While I am brewing my Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla coffee, I can throw a meal together in the crock pot and set my mind at ease knowing dinner is taken care of for tonight.
We have been enjoying all the cuts of pork from our piggy that we butchered a month or so ago. I decided to slow cook pork chops in a teriyaki marinade and serve with rice and stir-fry veggies. The whole family loved it! There are lots of wonderful bottled marinades at your local grocers to slow cook with chicken or pork. We have also tried Caribbean Jerk, Garlic and Herb, Mesquite and Mexican Fiesta. You can also get creative and whip up your own concoctions to please your family’s palate.
16 thin sliced pork chops
2 bottles of teriyaki marinade
3 C of water
(You may half this recipe if you are cooking for a smaller crowd.)
This is so easy. Combine marinades and water in the crock pot. Place chops in pot and rotate them around so that all the chops get covered with some of the marinade. If need be add a little more water. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. A wonderfully warm meal on a cold winter night!
What is a dinner dish that your family enjoys in the winter?
