Tasty Tuesday

As Mother Nature and Ole Man Winter are ‘loving’ each other and burying my small part of the world… I seek comfort food. Some of my favorite comfort food is made in my trusty crock-pot (my most loyal friend in the kitchen).

This recipe traditional uses sherry BUT I use Merlot (mainly because I always have some handy ;D)

What you need…

  • 2        Tablespoon unsalted butter or margarine
  • 3        large red  onions, thinly sliced
  • 1        cup pearl  onions, blanched and peeled
  • 1/2     teaspoon salt
  • 1/2     teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-1/2  pounds boneless pork loin, tied
  • 1/2     cup Merlot
  • 2        Tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1-1/2  Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2        Tablespoons  water

What you do….

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add the butter  and melt.
  2. Next, add the red onions and pearl onions.
  3. Sauté until vegetables are soft.
  4. You want to season with salt and pepper.
  5. Rub the pork loin with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker.
  6. Add the sautéed onions, sherry and parsley.
  7. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours.
  8. Remove the pork loin from the slow cooker and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
  9. Combine the cornstarch and water and add to the juice in the slow cooker to thicken the sauce.
