Pork Roast Crock Pot

Oiy, pregnancy cravings... I made this because I was craving some sort of pork.  I tell you what... It was SO tender and SO juicy, I could have eaten the entire roast by myself!  This is something I plan on making again and again.

1 lb. small red potatoes
16 oz. package of baby carrots
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic
3 lb. bonless pork loin roast, trim fat
1/4 cup dijon or yellow mustard, depending on preference
1 tsp tyme
1 tsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups beef broth

Layer baby reds on bottom edge of crock pot.
Layer baby carrots on top on potatoes.
Layer chopped onions in center of potatoes and carrots at the bottom of the dish.
Mix in the garlic with the onions.
Mix mustard and spices and coat the roast with the mixture.
Put the roast in center of the dish and pour over the beef broth.

Cook for approx. 6 hours flipping the roast once.
Check about 4 hours... the meat is done when it shreds easily.



Crockpot Chili

I made this for some friends of ours.  One guy had 4 bowls of it and begged for the recipe.  It really is an easy preparation soup and it mighty tasty! 

4 Cloves crushed Garlic
(I just buy the McCormick minced garlic in the spice isle.)
1 1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup green pepper
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
(if you are making it for younger children don't put any of the cayenne in.)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 to 3 cups carrot sticks
2 large cans chopped tomatoes
2 cans kidney beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can black beans
1 cup tomato sauce

Put everything directly into crockpot with out draining the cans. Cook in crock pot for a few hours until bubbling.  Serve with sour cream and cheese on top.
