Slow Cooker Magic Makes RV Meals Easy

Janet Groene’s
Slow Cooker Pork Cassoulet
    Don’t call it pork and beans! This gourmet recipe cooks carefree in your slow cooker.
Traditionally made with lamb, cassoulet is much more affordable with pork. No, you aren’t seeing double. Some ingredients are added twice. To stretch the recipe to feed more campers, add another can of white beans.

About 2 ½ pounds lean, bite size pork cubes
1 teaspoon each dried rosemary, rubbed sage and garlic granules
1 teaspoon dried lemon zest (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Large onion, diced fine
14-ounce can tomato sauce
3 to 4 cups canned white beans, undrained
1 teaspoon dried, crumbled rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley

Salt, pepper to taste

Put pork in a sprayed slow cooker. Sprinkle with rosemary, sage and garlic.  Add lemon
zest. Drizzle with olive oil and cover with diced onion. Pour in the tomato sauce and cook 5 to 6 hours on Low. Stir and add white beans. Sprinkle with rosemary, olive oil and parsley. Increase heat to High and cook 20-30 minutes more until everything is heated through. Adjust seasonings.  Spoon into rimmed plates and complete the menu with toasty garlic bread and cole slaw.
