Crockpot Recipes

Kimchi pork roast

Over a decade ago when I lived in Shanghai, I created a crockpot recipe. It went like this:

  • Step 1: Dump a pork roast into a crockpot
  • Step 2: Dump some kimchi into the crockpot
  • Step 3: Cook (8 hours on low, or 5 hours on high)
  • Step 4: Serve with rice.

As you can see, it was stupid easy. For the video above, I chopped that pork into cubes, but on subsequent trials, I just left the roast whole and liked it better that way. This recipe works great with beef too.

I may have based this recipe on my friend M’s Kalua Pig Recipe.

Kalua Pig with Cabbage.

  • Step 1: Dump a pork roast in to a crockpot (I ilike pork butt or shoulder)
  • Step 2: Season with Hawaiian salt and two drops of liquid smoke.
  • Step 3: Cook (8 hours on low, or 5 hours on high)
  • Step 4: Remove meat from crock pot and let it cool/rest.
  • Step 5: Shred cabbage and toss it in the fat of the meat. Let it cook for an hour.
  • Step 6: Shred meat and return it to crockpot.
  • Step 7: Serve with poi. Or rice.

Here’s a new one. My sister and brother in law can’t get enough of it.

Bratwurst in a Simple Ragù

  • Step 1: Dump one tetrapak of tomatoes in the crockpot and set to high.
  • Step 2: Grill some bratwurst. Don’t bother cooking all the way through, just get some grill marks and char flavor.
  • Step 3: Dump the bratwurst into the tomatoes and leave them there for 5 hours.
  • Step 4: Serve with pasta or something.

I’ve been using bratwurst because of some dietary restrictions, but Italian sausage sounds more appropriate.

Speaking of dietary restrictions, I don’t eat any of this stuff anymore, I’m a pescatarian. But I am feeding my family with these recipes still.
