Slow Cooker Smoked Pork and Vegatables November 27, 2016

Smoked pork gives a lovely amount of smoky flavor. Cooking it in a slow cooker only requires a few ingredients to produce a flavorful dish. You can add just about any veggies to this dish, cabbage, bell peppers, onion, and anything else, and wait for your meal to be ready.

Just a shame I didn’t have any celery or garlic to add to it as I think it would have been even better!

 

Ingredients

1 medium savoy cabbage, shredded

1 red bell pepper

1 yellow bell pepper

1 onion, diced

450g smoked pork, diced, but not too small

300g potatoes, diced, but not too small

300ml cold water

salt

pepper

1 Oxo cube, or similar

 

Method

 

Pour the water into the slow cooker, crumble the Oxo cube over the water.

Add the peppers, onion, pork and potatoes, season to taste with the salt and pepper.

Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 4 hours.

After that, add the cabbage and continue cooking for 1 more hour.
