Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Rating: Unrated
Too busy to cook? A slow cooker and a can of beef broth gets you started on this recipe. 'Low and slow' cooking gives you a roast that shreds with a fork. As an added bonus you get great stock for beef gravy as a by-product! Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce and plenty of coleslaw.

Glazed Ham

A raw ham is slow roasted, then seasoned with a sweet smoky sauce during the last hour to make a memorable meal with little actual work involved.

Herbed Pork and Apples

Rating: Unrated
Whenever I make this roast for company they always ask for the recipe. I have also made this with a pork tenderloin and it comes out great!

Pork Tenderloin with Apples

Rating: Unrated
Pork tenderloin is cooked on the stovetop and covered with crisp apples in a wine sauce. Would work well with boneless chicken breast or pork chops as well.

Pressure Cooker Carnitas

Rating: Unrated
Perfect for taco bars! This can be easily adapted to a slow cooker, but the pressure cooker really seals in the flavor and cuts down on cooking time. All the leftover broth from the pressure cooker is packed full of flavor, great as a starter for chile verde, and freezes well. Serve carnitas with white corn tortillas, guacamole and pico.

Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Plum Reduction

Rating: Unrated
A nice cozy meal for when the nights get colder. It is great with orzo and walnut pilaf! I just happened to have spare blueberry juice, but any juice would work.

Succulent pork roast with fragrant garlic, rosemary and wine.

German Hamburgers (Frikadellen)

Rating: Unrated
The original hamburger, these are served like a flattened meatball with some steamed string beans and salad. I also like to use this recipe to make Swedish meatballs (but omit the paprika). My Aunt in Hamburg, Germany taught me this recipe and I've been making them ever since. Serve with steamed string beans and tossed salad. Or serve on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumbers, finely sliced deep fried onions and curry ketchup.

This is a vegetable dish from the Philippines that can be served as an everyday dish or when you have company. Since it also contains pork and prawns, you can eat it as a one-pot meal.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Rating: Unrated
I make this dish often; I have never really measured the ingredients, but can give you a reasonable approximation. Note: Freeze leftover cooking liquid, and then add to bean soup, ham or cabbage dishes, or use to cook dumplings in. It's delicious!
