I usually flour the beef cubes before I brown it and then add the other ingredients and then if it need thickening later after the potatoes have had
some time to starch it up then I'll add it via a roux.
I rarely make cornbread but when I do I use the creamed
corn recipe from food network
I made porkchops the other day and they turned out really well (my husband doesn't like porkchops but he loved these). The day before you're going
to make them put porkchops in a bag or container and add a lot of sage, some garlic powder, some onion salt, ordinary salt and pepper and let it sit
in the spices overnight. The next day pull out a crockpot, add seasoned pork, drizzle on some EVOO or Grapeseed oil, on top of and around the pork add
1 large or 2 medium onions in big chunks (split the onion into 8ths),
3 apples chopped to same size as the onions,
3 sweet potatoes again the same size as the onions and apples,
and finally a few cups of water or chicken broth.
Leave on low all day or leave on high for a few hours and take the temp of the pork to make sure it's done, the meat should fall off the bone. The
sweet potatoes, onions and apples will soften like stuffing and they will sweeten the pork and sage goes well with everything, you may want to add
more salt or pepper toward the end once it's cooked and you're tasting it. There are recipes online that use brown sugar in it and I'm sure that
would be yummy but I tend to overdo it with brown sugar and I wanted my husband to at least try them so no brown sugar for me.
In all seriousness crockpots can make so many easy and delicious meals, chicken with Italian dressing, chili, stews, roasts, if you don't have one I
recommended getting one. They're worth it!
