Slow Cookin Crazy Que

When slave first heard about this taste combination, the first thought was: “Are You Crazy?” But this simple dish with it's four ingredients produces a great taste that has lasted in various recipes for decades. It is so easy why not try it?

This makes a great rainy day barbecue that cooks itself while you are busy doing other things. No one will be able to guess the secret to the wonderful

1 thick cut pork steak, or any thick cut of pork approximately 1½ - 2 lbs.
2 medium onion sliced thinly
1 12oz. jar of shrimp cocktail sauce
1 18 0z. jar of grape jelly.
Season as you wish.

Wipe out your slow cooker, spray it with cooking spray and set it on low.
Peel and slice the onions thinly. If using a mandolin slicer PLEASE use the handle that came with it so we don't have to taste the cut off end of your fingers. Leave the onion slices in a large bowl.

Heat up 2 tbs oil over medium heat in the skillet. While that is getting hot, trim as much of the fat as possible from the piece of meat. If you were frying or grilling, even if roasting, that fat would help make the meat tender. HOWEVER in a crock pot, that fat just stays there in the meat and sauce, making it greasy. So trim as much as you can.

Sear the sides of meat in the skillet, no more than 3 minutes per sides. You don't want to cook it, just turn it a nice shade of brown.

Dump half of the onion into the pot and nestle the meat in that bed. Cover with the rest of the onion.

Now in that large bowl mix the cocktail sauce with the grape jelly. Whisk it until all of the purple has mixed into the dark red.

Pour this over the mound of onions and meat.

Let it cook for 6 hours. That's the whole thing, that all you have to do.

Now slave invited a next door neighbor over for dinner and fixed green beans and some brown rice to finish off the full meal.
What a taste treat!

Remember this number one hit? Nancy Wilson

It is so much fun creating meals like this that no one suspects.


To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
