Pork & Mushrooms, Slow Cooker; the ultimate book — 8 Comments

  1. I have a pork tenderloin I’m doing tomorrow, but it’s the only cut of pork I won’t do in the crockpot. I’ve tried twice. Once was rubbery and one was dry. I wasn’t happy with the results. I think it’s too expensive to do that way anyway though. At least in my area. A shoulder comes out wonderfully, but I’ll stick to the sear and roast for the tenderloin. I’ll have to try this on some boneless chops though because it sounds delicious!

    I have an antique copy of volume A of the OED. I love antique books though and came across it at an estate sale here and just couldn’t pass it up. But it’s just A. I don’t know if the others were there or not. I didn’t see them.

    • I’ve never done pork tenderloin either. I usually do pork loin chops. The tenderloin I cook quickly and it’s always good, I love antique books, too. Even having just A would be wonderful 🙂

  2. That looks delicious!! We love adding mushrooms to pork stew (our slow cooker is a pot on the back of the stove…), but the last time, the only mushrooms we had were dried porcini that we reconstituted before putting them into the stew. Ha. Now, we’re always going to do that!

  3. How did I miss saying that I want to have a copy of The Meaning of Everything? This is just too tantalizing! Does it really have everything?

    • I used to (and still do, sometimes) use my oven as slow cooker – esp for slow roasting. I have no idea what the book is like, but I love the idea of a book about a dictionary….. kind of mobius strip-like
