A few weeks back I discovered the ancient crock pot from the 1980s hidden in back of a cabinet in the kitchen of this cottage rental. I was in heaven! I had neglected having my slow cooker shipped with my few essentials (coffee machine, Nespresso machine, wine, shoe collection, bag collection...) here.
I used my discovery to improvise a pork tenderloin recipe.
1 pork tenderloin (about a pound)
1 white onion, quartered
1 inch of ginger
5 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of fish sauce
1/2 cup of coconut aminos
1 1/2 cup of beef broth (you could use chicken broth)
- Put the onion in the slow cooker.
- Place the pork tenderloin on top of it.
- Puree the ginger, garlic, aminos, and fish sauce in a blender.
- Pour the puree over the pork, then pour in the broth.
- Slow cook for about 8-9 hours on Low.
When pulled out of the slow cooker, it easily falls a part. I used it for mini tostadas that I topped with guacamole.
I don't understand why everyone does not own one of these things. Slow cookers are the best!
