Crock Pot Mango Pork

In a crock pot:

large portion of frozen cubed pork
(approx 4 chops)
2 tsp Cajun seasoning ***** I would only use 1 next time!
(I found an easy one on line)

1\2 cup of water

Place lid on crock pot and turn onto low heat.

In a food processor (or by hand):

2 stalks of celery
1/4 of a green pepper
a splash of veg oil
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp mustard powder (or reg mustard)
1 lime's juice

Chop to desired size.
Add to your pork mixture in the crock pot and stir.

Cut 1 onion cut in size desired, add  to top of crock pot mixture but do not stir in.
This will steam the onion to a softer consistency but not drown it.

Replace lid.
(at 3pm)

Add 1/2 bag of frozen mango.

Replace lid
(at 4pm)

Choose side dish of rice or egg noodles and prepare.

Serve with a salad and bread.

Bon Appetit!

NOTE: This was delicious. Doritos burn my tongue and although this was spicy I ate my dinner with pleasure!

Stuffed Zucchini Boat

I found a HUGE zucchini at 
the Talbotville Berry Farm yesterday 

and knew I had to stuff it!

1) Trim off the top of my zucchini, 
so it looks like a boat.
Then hollow out the seeds, 
reserving any of the meatier parts.

2) In a food processor blend:

reserved zucchini
green peppers
***but you could any vegetables like:
carrots etc.

to make a vegetable chutney.

3) In a bowl mix: 
any ground meat (beef and venison here this time)
bread crumbs
1 egg
salt and pepper
italian seasoning

4) Stuff the meat into the zucchini

5) Pour the chutney over the length of the zucchini

6) Bake at 300 (I had to use my turkey roaster) for about an hour.

7) Sprinkle with grated cheese or parmesan

8) Broil for a short time to melt the cheese

Serve with rice or egg noodles, by slicing off "steaks".

The family liked it "plain" this way, but I would have liked a sauce of some sort. I keep thinking bbq sauce, but next time I think my vegetable chutney may be added to a tomato soup sauce or spaghetti sauce.

"Bon Appetit!"
