Bobby (*_*)


This morning , it was cold outside (22 degrees), and I wanted something hot and filling. I looked inside of the fridge, and found a head of cabbage, 1/2 pound of bacon, 2-1/2 lbs Pork loin roast, and a bag of baby carrots.

Pulled these items from the fridge, got a can of vegetable broth, a couple of large russet potatoes and spices and went to work on my CABBAGE, POTATO, LOIN ROAST and BACON creation.

    baby carrots
  • 1 can(s)
    (14 oz) vegetable broth(s)



  1. One slow cooker.
  2. First, lets get all the ingredients together.
  3. Take the 2-1/2 lbs. of loin, and cut it into thirds. Take the 2 tbsp of garlic pepper and rub each section of meat good, and let rest. It you need more garlic pepper to finish the meat, help yourself.
  4. Now lets do the bacon. Fry your bacon, in a large skillet, on medium-high heat, until the grease is out, about 5 to 8 minutes, and the bacon is just about crisp.
  5. Take bacon out of the grease and set bacon on side for later. Take skillet, and sat it off the burner with the hot grease.
  6. Lets go to the cabbage. Cut the core out of cabbage. Shred the cabbage by cutting it into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch shreds. Now take the skillet, place it back on the medium-high heat, and place the cabbage in the skillet.
  7. Cook the cabbage until it's crisp tender. While the cabbage is cooking, peel the potatoes. Set them in a pan of water.
  8. Take the cabbage after it has cooked crisp tender, and place the cabbage in the slow cooker. Put 1 tbsp of kosher salt and 2 tsp of coarse ground black pepper on the cabbage.
  9. Now it's meat time. Take the skillet and wash it out. Now use 2 tbsp of vegetable oil, place the skillet on high heat. Get the oil hot and sear the meat on all sides. Once the meat is seared, set it out in a plate.
  10. Take the peeled potatoes out of the water, and slice them in forth.
  11. Now, take the potatoes and slice them into 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices.
  12. Take the sliced potatoes, and place them in the slow cooker on top of the cabbage and spread out. Put 1 tbsp of celery flakes on top of potatoes.
  13. Now it's carrot time. Open the bag and wash the carrots. Place the carrots in the slow cooker on top of the potatoes and celery flakes.
    Now place the seared meat on top of the carrots.
  14. Now we will go back to the bacon. Take the bacon, and cut it up in about 4 slices.
  15. Take the bacon and lay it around the meat. Take 1 (14 oz) can of vegetable broth and pour around the vegetables but not on the meat.
  16. Put the top on the slow cooker and turn it on low, and let it do it's thing!!!

    NOTE: Cook in slow cooker for about 4 hours. Then open the slow cooker, and make adjustments to the seasoning and stirring.
  17. Take the meat and place the meat in the plate.
  18. Take and stir the cabbage and other ingredients in the slow cooker. Taste to find out if it needs more salt and pepper.
  19. I had to put 1 tsp of kosher salt and 1 tsp of coarse ground black pepper in my.
  20. Put the meat back on the vegetables, turn the meat over if you want to.
  21. I then took a cup of HOT water, and poured it along side of the meat, until the water just comes to the top of the vegetables. NOT the meat.
  22. Put the top back on the slow cooker, and cook for another 3-1/2 to 4 hours. Or, until vegetables are tender, and the meat is done.
  23. After it's done, fix you a plate with a side and cornbread. Dig in and enjoy...!!!!
