    Does it come with a fire extinguisher?

    My roommate would LOVE it. I would require first aid.

    The best thing about it -- besides the taste -- is that it is so easy to make. Just put it in the crock pot, come back 8 hours later, and VOILA┬┤ -- "OFF YOUR ROCKER CROKER PORK ROAST" is Ready

    Hmmm would it be ok with beef rather than pork do you think?

    yourname2000 saidWow, that sounds yummy...and I just picked up 3 little pork loins tonight! icon_biggrin.gif Though I think I might swap the jalapenos for habaneros, or up the count to a dozen or so, lol....or put in a whole can of chipotle. icon_lol.gif

    So, the pork roast just falls apart after 8hrs? --like pulled pork, or something?


    Yes, not quite as easily as pulled pork, but it does break up pretty easily. I have never tried it with pork tenderloin. but I am sure it will still be really good.

    beneful1 saidHmmm would it be ok with beef rather than pork do you think?

    Yes, I think you can sort of mix and match the meats anyway you like. I actually was going to try it with lean ground turkey this week.

    calibro saidhave you ever made it using your own beans and tomatoes?


    No, I just use canned beans and tomatoes, but I am sure the fresher the ingredients the better.

    Hope you guys that try it really enjoy it.

    I usually serve it up with a side of brown rice, fresh spinach, and a warm flour tortilla like this...

    Nope, not at all. It cooks just fine after 8 hours in the crock pot. Though that may be true if you use ground meat.

    I always used to brown the meat beforehand but don't bother now,, except for hamburger meat. It doesn't make any difference.

    And with hamburger meat I don't brown it in a pan anymore. I boil it for a few minutes in a pot of water.. turns out great and it's a helluva lot easier.. No standing there minding it and flipping etc... Just boil, drain and into the crockpot..
    I larned that on some cooking website. Try it.

    Generally you want to use a cheaper cut of meat because it cooks for so long that the cheaper meats cook tender but don't fall apart as much as a better (loin) piece of meat would.

    Sounds like a good recipe and I love using the crock pot. I'm going to give it a try!

    I've been doing a less spicy approach with my pork --

    Apples and onions sauteed in a bit of extra virgin Olive Oil, s & p...


    That goes in the bottom of the crock pot...

    A pork roast that I've rubbed with a spice blend (I've been buying the mccormack apple pork chop spice blend) and using it as a rub.

    Sear the pork roast in a hot pan. Put the seared pork in the crock pot. Deglaze the pan with a bit of white wine or apple cider. Add cider to the crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours...

    You can puree the liquids into a nice gravy if you want.

    I made this for Christmas.


    Amazeballs...

    Turn leftovers into pulled pork BBQ...
