Today, I tried out the crockpot pork recipe I posted previously in this thread, with a couple of changes. I knew for sure I had some honey, but I couldn't find it, so I substituted brown sugar. I had a little "spill" with the soy sauce, getting about double the 2 tbls the recipe called for. It didn't make the cooking liquid too salty, but I thought it tasted a little too "soy", so I added a little more orange juice, sugar and catsup to round it out. If it ends up being to strong, I'll add a little chicken broth or water before I thicken the juices with cornstarch.
I quartered a large sweet potato, and cooked that along side the pork loin. All those slices need are a pat of butter and a fork.
Everything is out of the crockpot and standing now.
For another side dish, I have some lovely fresh snow peas that I think I'll add to a boxed rice mix along with some canned chinese vegetables. Then we can spoon the sauce on the sliced pork and the rice.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
We get by with a little help from our friends
