The wife and I started cooking together today and plan to make it a Sunday tradition. We will be cooking using a recipe we both haven't tried before each Sunday while spending time together in the kitchen. I would like to start this thread on recipes you folks have so we can all share them and try them.
I will start with one I picked out. We both weren't sure how this would turn out but hot damn it was great. If you like hot spicy stuff this is the recipe for you to try.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 8 hours
1 1/2 ibs. boneless pork sirloin roast or tenderloin, cut into 1" pieces
4 (14 oz.) cans of low sodium chicken broth
2 (16 oz.) cans of mild chili beans
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 large green bell pepper, seeded, cut into 1" pieces
1 cup of frozen whole kernel corn
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 (1.25 oz) pkg. chili seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
In 4 to 5 qt slow cooker (I recommend 5) add pork, broth, beans, tomato, bell pepper, corn, onion, jalapeno, chili seasoning, and garlic powder.
Cover and cook 8 to 10 hours on low, or 4 to 5 on high. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in cilantro and serve. Serves 8.
I plan to try this with beef next time. This was great and it is spicy. Add as much or as little as you wish I suppose but try it this way first then change it next time around.
I added a whole can of diced tomato and I would add a half a bag of corn next time. I like corn. I think a bit more meat would have been better too. But it was a great soup. I started it off on med/high for about 3 hours stirring every half hour. Then I turned it down to low for another 2.5 and let cool for an hour before putting it away. I like soup cooled and eating the next day.
I used pork chop on the bone. I put a piece of bone and some fat into it for better flavor. I removed the bone and fat after it cooled.
In a world full of copy cats, be an original...
