Slow Cooked Pork w/Paprika and Carrot Rice Recipe

I have to admit that I neglected my slowcooker for the last year or so since I bought it. So this week, since I am feeling a little lazy, I decided that this is a great time to resurrect my exploration with my Crockpot!

Earlier in the week I made a version of veggie chili that was decent but kind of underwhelming, but today I made this easy pork and rice dish that hit the spot.

Ingredients for the Slow Cooked Pork

  • 1.5 cups chicken broth (I made it with chicken bouillon powder)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (I used a little more than this)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon dried basil leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon dried oregano
  • Homemade poultry seasoning (I eyeballed this, but mixed some sage, thyme and rosemary together)
  • salt and pepper
  • pork (you could use chops, I used the kind that are technically meant for stew)

Directions for the Slow Cooked Pork

  1. Mix broth, olive oil, garlic, paprika, basil, oregano, and poultry seasoning in a small bowl
  2. Season pork with pepper and salt
  3. Place pork in the bottom of the crockpot
  4. Pour sauce over the pork – if it doesn’t cover it, pour a little more liquid in and a little more oil
  5. Cook in slow cooker for 4 hours on HIGH

I served this on a  bed of rice that I prepared about 20 minutes before the pork was done.

Ingredients for Rice

  • 1.5 heirloom carrots, grated (I used a combo of purple, white and orange)
  • 1 tablespoon of minced ginger (fresh) – use less if you aren’t a ginger fanatic
  • Onion Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • ~2 cups of white rice (this would probably be really great with brown rice too)

Directions for Rice

  1. Prepare white rice in saucepan as you normally would
  2. While rice is cooking, place butter in skillet on med-low heat
  3. When butter begins to bubble a little bit, add in onion powder and ginger and let that cook for a moment
  4. Mix in carrots and salt and pepper, turn heat to low and allow to cook for a few minute
  5. When rice is done, mix in with the carrot mixture

When you serve this, pour a spoonful of rice on a plate, set pork on top of the rice, and then spoon a little bit of the sauce from the crockpot on top.

This has a really unique but delicious flavor, and I will DEFINITELY be making it again!
