Wednesday- What's Cooking?

I had some friends over on Wednesday and we pre-assembled 3 crock pot meals into freezer bags. It only took us one hour. I even doubled some of the recipes so I have more meal options. This way when I know a crazy day is coming, I am ready to throw dinner in the crock pot without all the preparation. Here is the recipe I think we will like the most.

Teriyaki Apricot Pork Chops- serves 4
4 pork chops
2/3 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce (La Choy and Tamari wheat-free are gluten free. If you don't have teriyaki in the house, you can make your own with equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar)
1 teaspoon dried ginger
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

The Directions.

Use a 4-quart slow cooker. If you only have a super large cooker, that's okay. You can throw in some baked potatoes or corn, or you can put an oven-safe dish into your cooker (Pyrex, corningware, baking pan) to create a smaller cooking vessel--- then load the porkchops into it.

Put the chops into your slow cooker. Frozen is okay. In a small bowl (sorry about this, you're gonna have to wash the bowl. bummer. ) mix together the sauce ingredients and then pour evenly over the top of the chops. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours, or on high for 3 to 4. Your chops are done when they have reached desired tenderness.
Serve with rice and sauce spooned over the top.
