Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pork Loin

Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pork Loin



This week, I decided to go easy on the grocery bill and use up some of the meat in our freezer.  I found a 2 pound pork loin (not a tenderloin, like I am used to making), so I wanted to use ingredients I had on hand to fix it up.  The result was a tasty, if a little dry, pork loin that Mister Spice and I ate on for a few days.

Crock Pot BBQ Beer Chicken

Last week, I worked close to 12-hour days Monday-Thursday, so cooking was the last thing I wanted to do when I got home!  I needed some new Crock Pot recipes to try, and this recipe from Jessica over at How Sweet it Is blog looked so delicious, I couldn’t wait to try it! How nice to throw a bunch of stuff into the Crock Pot and walk through the door after work to a meal ready to eat!

I love barbeque.  Do you love barbeque?  I’ve never met a pulled pork bbq sammy I didn’t like.  In my freezer, I had a 2.5 lb pork shoulder to use up, so I thawed it out and decided to throw it in my Crock Pot before I left for work.

Pot roast: one of my ultimate comfort foods.  I believe there are probably a million pot roast recipes out there, and for this particular recipe, I combined some of my favorites to create a tender, flavorful roast.  I like to cook roasts in my slow cooker, but on this particular night, I was cooking for my family and didn’t have the 7-8 hours that I prefer to have when cooking a roast, so I used my dutch oven instead.
