I just thought - if any of you have MasterCook on your computer, you might be interested in this site:
Mad's Recipe Emporium

About half way down on the left are a bunch of crockpot recipes that are formatted for MC and you can import straight into MC with no problems.

Oh, and if you don't have Mastercook, I'm pretty sure he still offers a free viewer - you can download and read them in txt mode, but sometimes they come out kinda wonky.

Default Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder

My Mom had us over for dinner tonight & made this & it was SO good and easy that I had to share. I will be making this often.

Taken from Real Simple magazine.

Serves 4 Hands-On Time: 15m Total Time: 8hr 00m
Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce (found in the Asian aisle of the supermarket)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (optional)
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 medium head bok choy, thinly sliced (about 8 cups)
  • 2 scallions, sliced

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, sugar, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, five-spice powder (if using), ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the pork and toss to coat. Cook, covered, until the pork is tender, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.
  2. Twenty-five minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, skim off and discard any fat from the pork. Gently fold the bok choy into the pork and cook, covered, until heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.

Do it--you won't be disappointed. The flavor is just delicious. Almost reminds me of something I would order at PF Changs--except maybe, BETTER!

Sounds good! I like 5 spice. A little cornstarch in the remaining liquid might make a thicker, restaurant type sauce/gravy for the pork.

Default The BEST slow-cooker pulled pork tacos!

I have had these twice now and they are to die for. We use unsweetened cocoa powder for the unsweetened cocoa that it calls for. For the salsa we use a smoky peach salsa from Trader Joe's. The recipe is from health.com so they have to be somewhat healthy Super easy to throw together.
