Crockpot Honey Apple Pork Loin

Standard

This is a super fast and yummy crock pot dish!  The pork was very tender and fell apart at a fork’s touch.  The texture reminded me of the pulled pork BBQ my Mom makes in Virginia.  Yum!

Ingredients:

Pork Loin
3 Sliced Apples
4 T Honey
2 T Cinnamon
Salt to taste

Preparation: 

Lay the apple slices from 2 apples at the bottom of the crockpot and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Cut slits in the pork loin (approx 1/2″-3/4″).  Drizzle some honey into the slits and then place apple slices into the slits.  Place the pork loin into the crockpot on top of the apples.  Drizzle the top with the remainder of the honey.  Place the rest of the apples on top.  Then sprinkle the whole thing with cinnamon.  Cook on low for 7 hours.

Easy Crock-Pot Fajitas

Standard

I love crock pot meals…they are so easy and have little work involved besides dumping the stuff in the crock pot.  Sadly, I often am disappointed in crock pot recipes.  We don’t use ingredients with preservatives, artificial flavors, and chemicals which means that many crock pot recipes don’t work for us.  And the recipes I do find many times disappoint in flavor.  But today, I am happy to announce a GOOD crock pot recipe!

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 lime, squeezed
2 T cumin
2 T chili powder
1 C water

Preparation:

Put everything in the crock pot with the vegetables first.  Set it on low for 8 hours.  Shred chicken.  It’s done!  We wrapped our fajitas with lettuce and added some shredded cheddar cheese and avocado slices.  Delicious!!!
