slow cook recipe

Via Tasty!

1 (4 lb) Pork shoulder roast
1 Yellow onion - sliced
Root Beer (about 1 Liter)
1 Bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
8 Hamburger buns

Place the pork into a slow cooker. Add sliced onions, and add root beer until the meat is just covered.
Cover and cook on Low 7-8 hours - or High 5-6 hours. Checking occasionally.(Times may vary depending on individual slow cooker)

Meat is done when it easily pulls apart and off the bone. Drain root beer, shred pork, and finish with your favorite BBQ sauce. Serve over hamburger buns and enjoy!

@elfyourmother replied to your post: “Today. I make bacon jam.”:

oooh what recipe are you using? i’ve been thinking about it for a while

i’m using Martha’s slow-cooker bacon jam recipe…not too many ingredients (most of which i already have), and easy to add to (i’ll throw in some cayenne, which goes well with the brown sugar and maple).

Slow Cooked Pork and Acorn Squash 🎃

The Slow Cooker is a cooking tool that every busy household should have! Prepare your ingredients ahead of time, turn on your slow cooker in the morning and come home to a fully cooked meal! Not to mention the house smells wonderful when you walk in! One recipe we love to make in our Slow Cooker is Pork Roast! Slowly cooked on low heat all day in it’s own juices, this meal is a little piece of Heaven!

1 Raw Pork Roast (It does not matter which cut you use as long as it’s a size that will fit in your slow cooker)
1 onion - cut in quarters
1 whole bulb of garlic, cloves peeled and left whole
Fresh Rosemary
1 medium size Acorn Squash
Salt and Pepper
3 tbsp of butter

Pork ~ In the bottom of the slow cooker, add the onion and garlic. Salt and pepper your meat on both sides and place it on top of the onion and garlic. Add the rosemary and 1 tbsp of butter. Close the lid of the Slow Cooker and set to high heat. Cook for 4 to 6 hours or until meat is tender (Cook time will vary per size).

Squash ~ Cut the Acorn Squash in halves and place on a cookie sheet. Put 1 tbsp of butter in the center of each half. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (F), bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven and baste each half with the butter from each center. Return to the oven and cook for another 30 minutes (or until tender).

Serve together and top with the juices from the Roast, or you can combine the juices into a gravy mix.

concept: steve does age kinda normally, he just. he's one of those people who ages Really Well? he's getting a little soft around the hips but he blames it on sam's mom's slow cook chicken recipe. he's squinting at his phone screen but it's a joke, really, haha the hundred-year-old man, but it's also not a joke? finally they're lazily making out one morning when sam stops and grabs steve's head and turns it and there are definitely little silver hairs at his temples. and they cry and so do i

oh myg od please im crying

sam kisses his temple really gently and then leans his forehead against steve’s. there’s not much to say, really–there’s relief, there’s sadness, there’s joy, but no words to properly describe how they’re feeling–so after their moment of tender intimacy (sitting on their COUCH while their dog is fast asleep in the other room), sam murmurs “i love you,” real soft and gentle. steve’s lips curve upwards instinctively, the way they do every time sam opens his mouth.
“i might be getting old, but you’re getting soft,” he teases gently, which makes sam whack his arm lightly. “i love you too.”

Slow-cooked Scrambled Eggs

This recipe is perfect if you’re craving creamy, cheesy scrambled eggs but don’t have milk or cheese (or don’t eat them). All you need for the basic recipe are eggs!


  1. Preheat your pan over low heat. The lower the better.
  2. Crack however many eggs you want to cook into a cup or bowl and mix them well with a fork. You can add your seasonings now if you want.*
  3. Coat your pan with a bit of the oil/butter/spray of your preference.
  4. Pour the eggs into the pan and stir the edges of the pan with a spatula or spoon over the course of 15-20 minutes** until desired doneness.
  5. Enjoy warm! :)

* Salt can affect egg texture so it’s usually recommended to add salt towards the end of cooking. Any other seasonings are fine though.

** Cooking eggs low and slow with lots of stirring is the key to creaminess. Cooking eggs this way causes the eggs to curdle, which makes it seem like there is milk or cheese when there isn’t any. 

I know 20 minutes is a long time for eggs and I usually only cook them this way when I want an indulgent weekend breakfast because they come out incredibly creamy and delicious without any add-ins. You can bump up the heat a bit and cook them faster but know that a 5-min slow-cooked scrambled egg won’t be as creamy as a 20-minute!

General tips:

  • Don’t use a metal utensil on a non-stick pan, use plastic, wood, or silicone.
  • Eggs will keep cooking from the residual heat in the pan when you turn the heat off or remove it from the burner, so it’s a good idea to move the pan juuuust before the eggs are where you want them to be to prevent over-cooking.
