My cooking triumphs
I recently made a recipe from this site called Iowa Pork Steak. Thanks to CATMANIACS for submitting it. Instead of putting it in the oven though, I put it in the slow cooker. I also didn't add the fresh mushrooms (didn't have any) and I used less water. Other than that I did and added everything according to the recipe. They were the BEST pork steaks I have ever eaten! They were so flavorful and tender. We ate them with rice using the gravy to pour over the rice. I think I'll only make pork steaks like this from now on. LOL Thanks again CATMANIACS.
My cooking tragedies
I made some porkchops in the slowcooker. I think this was when I was just starting to cook in there. Nobody told me how to cook in it (didn't come with instructions), so I didn't put any liquid in with the chops. After awhile it really started to smell. It was so disgusting that I was nauseous for the rest of the night. We definitely didn't eat them, they were way too dry anyway.
