I discovered relatively recently that the slow cooker is your best friend. If you find a good recipe that requires little effort but comes out healthy and delicious, that is a sure win.
I found this recipe for a Mongolian Beef Crock Pot on Tip Hero. I added some grated carrots to the recipe for some veggies. You can add others if you want like carrots, peas and corn, or zucchini. Anything fits this recipe.
I chucked it all in the Telfa Cuisine Companion to slow cook and left it for a couple of hours. Served it with brown rice. It was a easy day for me. I didn’t have to spend too long in the kitchen and got to relax a bit more.
The other recipe is Pork and Beans minus all the sugar. It’s my mother’s own recipe. I remember this food fondly because Mama used to cook this for me a lot. It was my special Sunday meal. I had to harass Mama to make sure I got this recipe right.
Mama’s pork and beans
2 cans of organic beans (mixed beans is fine too)
Fry up the garlic, onion and pork belly till the pork is brown-ish. Chuck everything in the slow cooker, including the beans. Add a cup of water or stock. Cook for 1-2 hours.
Serve with rice or eat on its own, up to you. It ended up tasting just like Mama’s.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary Cuisine Companion from Tefal for this partnership.
