Tales from the Crock

It doesn't get any easier then this, honest.

1. 6 qt Crock Pot
2. 2 lbs Sauerkraut
3. 2 lbs Sausage

Chop sausage into 1 inch pieces, layer sauerkraut, sausage, more kraut, more sausage. Add some garlic, I added some dried chile peppers, set on low, come back in 7 hours, dinner, breakfast, lunch is served.

This dish is so tasty, I doubt if you'll have any left in 2 days and that's just feeding you. Let the others fend for themselves.

Now, if you're going to start counting blocks, or trying to figure out how many blocks are in a 1 inch piece of pork, just pretend you didn't see this thread and go back to counting your almonds.

Throw some apples and a little cinnamon and nutmeg in there, and you've really got a good meal going.

Re: Tales from the Crock

I have this in my Crock Pot right now. I added a few Basil leaves and some Dill weed. I can't wait we're going to eat this tonight and watch the TUF finale

Thanks Jay
Grant

If you put apples in there, would you keep them in the whole time or add them in at some point along the way? I would think that being in there the whole time would make them mushy and unappetizing but I'm not sure...

Re: Tales from the Crock

that looks awesome, jay!

i just bought a really big pot and am keen to start giving some of your recipes a crack (or a crock i should say)... pulled pork is real high on the list

cheers for consistently bringing in nutrition threads that aren't about cheat days for a change!

Joe;
You're adding the apples more for their flavor then for eating, though I'd eat them, mushy or not. Pork/Apples go well, with the Kraut, the apples sweetness will offset the tartness and salt of the kraut, nutmeg and cinnamon make it even more interesting.

Gus, thanks for the kind words and on congrags on your new purchase. The other day I loaded in a whole chicken, small, about 4lbs or so. Added in very little liguid, maybe some Franks Hot Sauce, little Apple Cider Vinegar, but not more then a 1/2 cup of liquid total. Upon return about 8 hours later, the skin had broken down into liquid, but the most amazing part is that the smaller bones also breakdown, literally. I pulled the chicken apart, found two of the drumstick bones, few other small pieces of breastbone, but that was it.
BTW, you then can eat these bones and suck out what marrow is left.

While I do like grilling and smoking, that dang crock pot can sure do a job on meat. Good luck on your pulled pork, the only thing you'll be missing with the "bark" or outer layer of crust that forms from the long slow smoke.

Is Roo a popular meat down there? What are some of the other unqiue meats that you guys have that we in the States don't.

Have a great week.

Jay

Ya, those lame as- cheat threads just make me smile, they are so whiny. Just eat the friggin junk, call it a day, move on.
