Gluten-free and Gluten-y family members alike will all absolutely love this beef round steak with vegetables from the crock pot recipe.
It’s a classic stick-to-the-ribs family-style meal that is every bit as good as your favorite stew… And, you can thicken the delicious broth that you’ll get after simmering for several hours in your slow cooker into a silky-smooth gravy that will make the meal even better.
This meal only takes 20-minutes or so to put together and then can simmer for as long as necessary… Whatever that means in your world. It’s a low preparation-time recipe that you and your whole family are sure to enjoy.
My husband Al, who doesn’t like anything barbecue… And, don’t get me started about Al and hot spices… He surprised the “bejeebers” out of me. I’ll tell you more about Al in a moment. But first…
… First, let me explain that I was going to be out of the house all day and I needed something that I could make that was yummy as well as really easy. Pulled barbecued pork seemed like just the thing because I could dump it in my crock pot and leave it to cook slowly all day while I was away “taking care of business.”
I had some pork loin roast in the ‘fridge that was just begging to be used. So, before I left the house yesterday, I grabbed the roast, put it in the crock pot, bones and all, added enough water so it wouldn’t boil away in the next 10 or so hours and the necessary barbecue “stuff.”
Now, back to Al…
The flavors of pork chops and green onion work together so that this easy recipe hardly needs much else. We like these braised chops often, so it’s a good thing the boneless pork loin is so lean and quick to cook. When my family asks, “How long till supper is ready?” — I can tell them this will be ready soon!
It can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. That makes a great weeknight supper, but it tastes good enough for guests, too. Match it with a side dish of asparagus or green beans and possibly some potatoes for a well-rounded meal.
Sweet and spicy, tender and springy gingerbread …it’s a traditional recipe for any time of the year. But, if you dress it up a little with some decorator’s red sugar, it takes on a more festive air. This gluten-free recipe is easy to make and frugal, too, but it also is wonderful for serving your family and your guests.
