OMG--the pork roast was SO GOOD. I subbed out one cup of the milk for buttermilk...added fresh sage, thyme, strained the "juice" to get rid of the curds...yum-yum-yum. I am sure this recipe could be done in a crock pot. So very tender...worth a try folks!

That sounds awesome, CWS. I'll have to try it with boneless skinless CB. I have powdered buttermilk, would that work?

I don't know--but I think if you treat the powdered buttermilk like powdered soy milk where you rehydrate it the night before and use a hand mixer/wand to blend before you add it, it should work. I use powdered bm for baking, but for the chicken recipe I buy buttermilk...for the milk pork, powdered bm should work.

I am giving the strained curds to the chickens...I'm sure they will like them....gotta love hiaving "pigs with feathers" to which to feed kitchen scraps!

I use instant potato flakes/buds to thicken stew. Since it doesn't have to come up to a boil to thicken, it's perfect for the crock pot, and adds a bit more nutrition to the gravy.

I often don't add thickener at all. Or, as Kayelle said, potato flakes.

Your stew sounds great!
