1 4-5 pound pork roast
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup hot water
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Place metal rack or trivet in bottom of slow cooker/Crock Pot (I fashion a trivet from aluminum foil). Sprinkle pork roast with salt and pepper; place on trivet in pot. Pour hot water around pork roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until done. Remove meat from pot. Place on broiler pan or oven-proof platter. Combine molasses, mustard, vinegar, marmalade and ginger. Brush over cooked pork roast. Brown in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, brushing several times with the sauce.
Open rolled roast. Sprinkle with garlic, gingerroot and cranberries. Arrange apricots in single layer over roast. Sprinkle mint over apricots. Roll roast tightly and secure with string or skewers. Place roast on a rack in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hrs. or until lamb is tender. Slice and serve hot.
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced or 2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
1 lb yellow potatoes (about 3-4 medium potatoes), cubed (I left the skins on)
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces1 (13.5 oz) can full fat coconut milk
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander seed
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 lime, juiced–optional
Cilantro, for garnish
In your 4-6 quart slow cooker place the onions, potatoes and chicken.
In a bowl, stir together the coconut milk, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, turmeric, curry powder, coriander seed, salt and red pepper. Whisk until combined. Pour the mixture over the contents of the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours (some slow cookers may take only 3 hours). Test potatoes for tenderness.
Gently stir. Stir in the lime juice, if desired. Add in more turmeric and curry powder and salt to taste.
