Cultivating Traditions [crock pot balsamic pork roast]

It’s weird to think of something my husband and I do as a tradition.  Our little quirks and eccentricities can’t qualify as traditions, can they?  They’re just routines, or habits. We haven’t been together long enough to have traditions, have we?

Dear readers, we totally have.

And if you’ve been spending enough time with someone that you’ve repeated a certain habit or routine more than twice, I’m going to declare you have too.

One thing I made a habit of doing in our last house was cook a hearty Sunday dinner most weeks of the year.  At least, most weeks when it made sense to get a hearty Sunday dinner on the table.  It was probably more of a fall/winter thing.  Summer Sunday dinners became grilled affairs.  But anyway.  It was a cold-weather tradition.  It helped shape our weeks, and it was something I looked forward to planning and executing.  Now that we’re in a new space, it’s something I need to consciously think about again.  It’s no longer part of the routine, but I would love for it to be again.  We pulled out an old crock pot favorite to kick things off in La Moneda.  Cheers to finding many more hearty Sunday dinner ideas.

To make crockpot balsamic pork for about 6 people, you will need:

  • 2 pound boneless pork shoulder roast (sirloin roast)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Season the pork with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes and place it into the slow cooker. Mix together the broth and vinegar and pour it over the pork, then pour the honey over and set the timer for 4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low.
