It’s Day 26, and I bet you’re as sick of cooking as I am. I understand how you feel; I’ve been cooking — AND BLOGGING! — every night for over three weeks, and quite frankly, I’m ready to keel over. Sadly, kvetching ain’t gonna put food in our bellies. But who says we can’t throw together a dead-simple meal and spend the rest of the day sprawled out on the couch? (Err…I mean, sprawled out on the grass like Mark Sisson. Outside. Synthesizing vitamin D. Barefoot. In the freezing cold.)
Let’s make Slow Cooker Cheater Pork Stew!
The secret to this easy meal is to just dump a bunch of umami-laden ingredients into your slow cooker, including marinara sauce out of a jar. Sandra Lee calls this “semi-homemade” cooking in an attempt to make it sound respectable, but let’s call a spade a spade: This is a cheater’s recipe. But who cares? It’s Whole30-compliant, requires minimal prep time, and explodes with flavor.
