It is still hot in AZ, and will be for a while, so its time to break out the slow cooker. This is a great way to make tasty food without stressing out my AC. This is another sweet and savory meal, do I sound like a broken record? Sorry, I just love the combination.
You don't need much to make this tasty slow cooker dish. Gather up some paprika, tomato paste, coriander, garlic, onion, vodka, maple syrup and some pork tenderloin or other lean pork.
Rough chop the onion.
chop up the garlic.
crush up the coriander, I just use the bottom of the spice jar.
Cube up the pork.
Measure out the syrup and the vodka. Be sure to use real maple syrup, not pancake syrup.
get everything in the crock pot...
don't forget the pork...
give it a stir...
and say goodbye for 6-7 hours. Whatever you do, do NOT do work during these 6-7 hours or it will have a serious negative effect the outcome of the dish. Your best bet is grab the remaining vodka and make yourself a nice martini and find a great book. Set a timer in case a nap sneaks up on you as well.
After you are done with your book or your 6 hour nap, plate up the pork with your favorite veggie. I had some fresh local corn and it was an amazing dish. The pork was super moist and could have easily been shredded and served on a nice roll. Another sweet and savory combination that turned out delicious!
