SLOW COOKER CHUTNEY PORK LOIN

This slow cooker recipe is a snap to make with a jar of mango or peach chutney, onions, and seasonings.

1 Boneless Pork Loin Roast, About 3 to 4 lbs.

1 Large Sweet Onion (sliced)

Salt And Pepper

1/2  tsp. Garlic Powder or 1 Small Clove Garlic (finely minced)

1 Jar (12 oz.) Mango or Peach Chutney

2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp. Grainy Mustard

1/2  tsp. Ground Ginger

1 tsp. Curry Powder

Wash roast and pat dry; trim excess fat. Put sliced onion in the bottom of a 5 to 7-quart slow cooker. Lightly salt and pepper the roast then rub with the garlic powder or fresh minced garlic. Place the roast in the slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients and spoon over the roast. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour, then reduce to LOW and cook for 6 to 8 hours longer, or continue cooking on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours longer. The roast should register at least 160° on an instant read thermometer or meat thermometer inserted in the center of the roast.

Remove the roast from the crock pot and keep warm; pour juices into a medium saucepan. Simmer the juices for about 5 to 8 minutes to reduce by about one-third.

VENISON SAUSAGE AND POTATOES

I make this at every deer camp that we have & all our hunters just absolutely love this. It’s great for breakfast or brunch.

4 lbs. Deer Sausage

5 lbs. Russet Potatoes

3 or 4 Large White Onions

2 Large Green Bell Peppers

2 Large Red Bell Peppers

2 Sticks of Butter

Cajun Spice Seasoning

Salt and Pepper

In a large pot, brown the sausage & drain. While sausage is draining, wash & cube potatoes into 1⁄2” cubes. Peeling the potatoes is your choice. I have found out that we prefer the skin on. Also, cut up the onions & peppers. When sausage is cooked & drained, return it to the pot, add potatoes, onions & peppers. Stir, and add seasonings to taste. Unwrap 1 stick of butter & place it on top & in the middle of the mix. Let the mix cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring about every 5 minutes. As you stir, work the stick of butter closer to the bottom. If it seems to get dry, add more butter as needed. Cook mix until potatoes are done.

I used to cook it in a large cast iron skillet on a large round kerosene heater, outside. The aroma of this cooking would roll through the valleys and bring the other hunters in!

TIM’S CARNE GUISADA

Carne Guisada is a Tex-Mex dish of meat in a spicy gravy. Makes excellent soft tacos with flour or corn tortillas. This is a good recipe for meat that tends to be tough, such as the shoulders.

3 or 3 1/2 Lbs. of Venison (diced)

1 Large Onion (chopped)

1 Large Green Bell Pepper (chopped)

2 or 3 Large Cloves of Garlic (minced)

2 or 3 Jalapeno Peppers (seeded & chopped)

1 Can Tomatoes & Chilies

2 1/2 tsp. Cumin

1 tsp. Chili Powder

1 Tbsp. Of Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Water as Needed

Cornstarch

Sauté the minced garlic in the olive oil for a minute or so, then add the meat and brown all sides. Once meat is brown, add the tomatoes, onions, peppers, and spices. (Add water as needed to prevent scorching. It’s OK to be on the watery side while cooking.) Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 3 to 4 hours. Stir occasionally. Once cooked, combine a tablespoon of cornstarch with a little water, then add to the meat to thicken the gravy. Enjoy with tortillas!



RUSTIC ROAST CHICKEN

Golden chicken with slow-roasted vegetables, drenched in their own glorious broth. The perfect Sunday treat. The outcome is simply delicious.

1 Medium Chicken

1 Large Lemon

4 Celery Sticks

2 Leeks

1 Onion

1 Garlic Clove

3 Carrots

A Few Sprigs of Thyme

4 Tbsp. Olive Oil

4 Tbsp. Butter

6 oz. Chicken Stock

Sage

Rosemary

2 Bay Leaves

Salt And Pepper

Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

Open the neck of the chicken and stuff with half a lemon and the sprigs of rosemary.

Secure the chicken by passing the string around the back of the bird, behind the wings. Then bring it up from underneath and around the ends of the drumsticks, binding them together firmly. From there, wrap the string once under the body and bring it back up to tie on top over the tips of the drumsticks.

Rub the chicken with a little olive oil and season all over with salt and pepper.

Roughly chop the vegetables into chunks and put them into a bowl. Cut the garlic clove down the center and add it to the bowl with the other vegetables.

Place a frying pan over a high heat and add the rest of the olive oil. When hot, add the chicken, brown it on all sides and remove.

Put the vegetables into the same frying pan and season with salt and pepper. Stirring occasionally, continue frying until they are lightly browned.

Place the chunky vegetables into a roasting dish, add the remaining herbs and butter and place the chicken on top.

Place the roasting dish on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 30 minutes. After half an hour, open the oven and spoon the juices from the dish over the chicken, this will improve the flavor and color of the bird. Then bake for a further 30 minutes.

Pour the chicken stock into the roasting dish and cook for a final 20 to 30 minutes.

Insert a knife into the thick part of the leg. If the juice runs clear, it is ready to remove from the oven.

Remove the string before carving.
