Pork and Pepper Stew
Way too much grease and butter! I used 2T bacon grease for browning the pork and 1T butter for the onions. Add a pinch of salt while cooking the onions to help them soften and get sweeter. There is no need to use expensive tenderloin for this. Pork loin stands up better to long slow cooking. To reduce the heat, remove seeds and white membranes from the Jalapeno peppers. The tomato paste should be sauteed until it darkens and caramelizes before adding the beef broth. That removes the harsh acidic taste and adds a mellow sweetness.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
This is very similar to Chinese Steeped Chicken. I've made that in a pot on the stove, so I wanted to try this in the slow cooker. It was tender and tasty, and as one person said, even better the next day; however, the presentation was blah. Fall-off-the-bone tender means I served a pile of chicken chunks. That is fine for the 2nd day, but on the first day I like to present a whole chicken. In Steeped Chicken, they keep the skin on and simmer the chicken (breast side up, with sauce barely shimmering, NOT boiling) for 15 minutes. Then you turn off the heat, put the chicken breast side down, cover the pot and let the chicken finish cooking while it steeps in the sauce. After an hour it will be done. I often move the pot to the fridge and let it steep overnight, to serve later. Before serving, I put it in a HOT 550 degree oven for about 7 minutes to crisp the skin. It comes out with crispy skin and tender, flavorful, juicy meat.

Savory Onion Bread
I made this today and it was excellent! I mostly followed the recipe, but I doubled the amount of onion and added a Tbsp of onion powder to deepen the oniony flavor. I also added about 1/3 cup minced parsley to round out the flavors. I made it with white cheddar cheese and it was lovely. Those who said it was dry may have over baked it. I used a 9" square pan and it was perfect in just 20 minutes.
