Slow Cooker Thai Pork, more Barcelona

I was meandering around the internet, looking for inspiration, and ran across a recipe for Thai Pork.

It sounded interesting, except for the bird’s-eye (very hot) peppers…. and the fact that it was made in an Instant Pot.

I don’t have an Instant Pot.

I’m not even sure what in Instant Pot is.

Okay, I can google it but I would have to care enough to bother. And why would I care if I can’t buy one anyway?

So, as is typical of me, I noted the ingredients I liked, ignored the rest and ignored the instructions.

Then I decided to do it in the slow cooker because the Pork Lo Mein worked really well.

I may be on to something….

I would have added some peanuts or cashews at the end if I’d had any….. Next time.

More Barcelona memories….

For all of my friends and family in Minneapolis: Barcelona skyway

One should always be looking up when walking the streets.

The architecture and art is fantastic.

Little bits turn up…

I didn’t realize until I started looking at the photos how ‘pink’ the city is….

I’m ready to go back.

  1. I have an Instant Pot. I’ve used it twice in all the time I’ve had it. :/

    I thought when you said to ‘look up’ that you were going to tell us someone dumped a bucket of water on you!

    • I have a tendency to buy appliances and never use them… I’m trying to stop the buying part lol
      One could get a stiff neck trying to see everything in Barcelona….
