Oooh! Can I tell you how much I am loving my slow cooker?! Not only does it do all the work for me, but cleanup is a breeze and it makes these tougher cuts of meat soooo succulent and, well – I won’t torture you any longer. Today’s dish is a flavorful low sodium pork loin in ONE simple step. Add everything to the pot, place on low and 8 hours later you’ll have a dinner worthy of company. We spooned ours over steamed basmati rice and it was ample enough for a second meal. Recipe courtesy of Kitchen Basics Healthy Cooking with Stock.
