My first crock pot

If I remember correctly I asked for a crock pot approximately a million times in the fall and Santa was good to me and brought me not one, but two =) (that's what happens when you have two families)

So the first thing I made in it was a dessert (are we surprised?!), and that was a bread puddin' with rasins. It was okay but as I threw out almost all of it this morning, I knew it was time to try again. Pintrest to the rescue...

That is the pintrest photo. Here is the recipie and some photos I took from this morning. I'm hoping that these little things will be delcious for my lunch tomorrow in the middle of my EIGHT hour long class.

*Note: I cut everything in half because I didn't think I'd want 4 of these things.

  • 2 pounds ground pork (or a combination of pork and beef)

  • 4 large green peppers

  • 1 large onion

  • 2 carrots

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower (didnt' use because it's not my favorite)

  • 6 ounce can of tomato paste (erm' let's hope I measured 1/4 of the can correctly...)

  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano

  • 1 tablespoon dry or fresh tarragon (I have NO idea what this is and didn't see it in my spice rack, and my hands were already nasty and tomatoey from mixing...needless to say this didn't get put it.

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Bascially I just shreadded the carrots, garlic, and chopped up the onion. Then I added the pound of meat and tomato paste.

     Once it was mixed up I plopped it into the seedfree and topfree green peppers.

    You add a cup of water to the bottom of the crock pot and stick the little green guys in there.

    Then they just cook for 8-10 hours on low. My apartment smells heavenly at the moment, fingers crossed they taste just as good!


    1. these look delicious! def pinning this!

    2. Yum! That sounds so delicious! I'm going to have to do some stuffed bell peppers soon. It's one of my favorite things, I just always forget to put them on my weekly menu!


    Tell me whatcha think!
