First Adventure with Crockpot

So, we got a new crock-pot, and didn’t really know how to use it.. so, we just put a huge whack of stuff in the slow cooker, set it to 6 hours, and enjoyed our first meal.

Our Crock-pot is pretty advanced if you’ll ask me. I remember my parents old one, that had a dial with 2 settings on it only. This one has 2 settings, but also a timer, and a warmer! It was very interesting.

We threw together pork tenderloin, carrots, onions, garlic, and some beef stock. During the last 45 minutes, I threw in some green beans and zucchini and opened a can of corn. The meat came out very tender, and it absorbed the flavors of the new broth I made! I think it was a huge success. I currently have no plans or ideas of what to make next as it is a large Crock-Pot, and I would need to expect to feast out of it for at least 2 days!
