Hey, I'm heading to hunting camp this weekend, and am looking for a good crock pot recipe of some kind. I like to prepare something at home, so when I get to camp (actually, camp is a farm house in the country), I can plug in the crock pot when I leave in the morning. When we get back to camp after a day of hunting followed by drinking, dinner is ready with minimal activity.
In the years past, I have made both green and red chili, pollo con arroz, and Slovakian goulash. I thought I would poll the master chefs at the forum here, to see if anyone has developed a killer crock pot recipe.
To start it off, here's the Slovakian goulash recipe:
4 lbs. Pork shoulder (Boston butt), cubed
- 1 tbs ground black pepper
- 2 large onions
- 1/3 cup of oil
- 1 tbs cumin
- 2 tbs sweet Hungarian paprika
- 2 tbs hot Hungarian paprika
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 lbs sauerkraut
- 1 cup cream (sweet)
- 1 can beef broth
- 1 can vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon of salt
Put the oil (or pork fat) into a pot and then fry the diced onions. Then add the pork (which should be cut up into cubes) to the frying onions. After 15 minutes or so, once the juices are escaping from the meat, then tansfer to the crock poyt.
Add the salt, cumin, pepper, paprika and pour in the broth. Set the crock on low.
When you get back to camp, add the saurkraut and cook for an hour. Meanwhile, boil up a pot of egg noodles.
Add the cream to the pork n kraut and let it cook for a further five minutes.
Finally add the soy sauce and cook for the remaining five minutes.
Serve over the noodles.
