Whenever we were becoming an adult, we ate Christmas dinner at our Grandma's house each year. She is simply a small little factor, but she will prepare like it's nobody's business!
Certainly one of my personal favorite Christmas dinners is her scrumptious pork. I'm able to still remember entering her house and smelling that tasty pork cooking within the oven.
This recipe is fairly near to the pork that they makes, however i managed to get a bit simpler by tossing it within my slow cooker.
Should you prefer a scrumptious Christmas dinner,
Slow Oven Honey Baked Pork
7 pound spiral pork
two tablespoons Dijon mustard ( Spicy, brown )
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup water
Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (for those who have a sluggish oven liner, I would recommend utilizing it- it'll make clean-up very simple!). Place pork within the slow cooker.
Combine sugar, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and mustard inside a sauce pan on medium heat. Let prepare for just two-a few minutes (until ingredients melt and mix) and whisk completely. Remove from heat.
When the lid doesn't fit over your pork, you may make a aluminum foil tent (I made use of an 8 lb pork also it did not easily fit in my 6 quart slow oven).
I made use of two sheets of aluminum foil which were each about 12" lengthy. I tucked the ends all over the edges from the slow cooker after which collected them together in the centre and folded the ends lower (The plastic round the edges is my slow oven liner).
To help keep heat in much more, I placed a towel outrageous of my aluminum foil tent. It labored perfectly!
Prepare the pork on low for six-8 hrs. Baste the pork using the juices towards the bottom from the slow oven once every hour (if you would like, you may also turn the pork every hour to make certain that sides are becoming cooked within the honey mixture, but after concerning the third hour, my pork was too tender and merely fell apart).
When your pork is completed, take it out of your slow oven. Pour the juices towards the bottom of the slow oven right into a medium saucepan. Mix together two tablespoons of corn starch with 1 Tablespoon water and pour in to the saucepan. Prepare on medium heat until it begins to thicken. Use that like a glaze within the pork or perhaps like a gravy for taters.
Even without having a sluggish oven, you may still bake this pork inside your oven. Once more, create a tent with aluminum foil and bake 15-20 minutes per pound at 350 levels. Baste the pork once every half an hour.
