Two Quick & Easy Crock-Pot Recipes
It's starting to get to that busy time of year for us and I have 2 crock-pot recipes that I use on a very regular basis. I thought I would share them with you:
PULLED PORK SANDWICHES
Favorite BBQ Sauce (whole container or jar)
Place pork loin into crock-pot and pour the BBQ sauce over the pork. Cook on low for approximately hours. Take pork loin out of crock-pot and shred pork and return shredded pork back into crock-pot and stir. Keep on warm until ready to serve. Serve with hamburger buns (we like Orawheat whole wheat buns) and grated cheese (optional).
SOFT CHICKEN TACOS
3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Favorite salsa (about 2 cups; I just pour a little salsa on the bottom of the crock-pot and then cover the chicken with more salsa)
Cook chicken and salsa on low for 6 to 8 hours on low. Shred the chicken and return to the crock-pot. Note: it will seem like there is too much salsa, but once the chicken is shredded the chicken just soaks up the salsa juices. Serve with tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, olives, lettuce, and sour cream!
Hope you enjoy! These recipes are life savers for me on busy softball and soccer nights!!
