Random Pork Roast.
I needed to clean out some veggies I had laying around before they finished going bad. Grape tomatoes, a bell pepper, shredded carrots.
Into the crockpot goes a bottle of beer that Katie hasn’t drank yet, a can of low sodium beef broth, half a container of grape tomatoes, and a bag of shredded carrots. I was expecting the carrots to cook down to nothing, they almost did.
Off to the store I went. Pork Rump Roast, cheap. Large yellow onion, a red potato and a white potato. I wanted to see if I could tell the difference in the end.
Once home again, the roast gets cut in half, cleaned up a little bit and browned all the way around. While the meat is browning, I remembered I had the red bell pepper, that gets cut up along with the onion and into the crockpot they go. Meat goes in on high.
I do some chores, clean fish tank, talk to Matt, do whatever for a couple of hours. I then cut up the potatoes and add a dollop of Hoison sauce for a bit of flavor and saltyness.
I go take a walk along the beach for a couple of hours.
Upon getting back, I add some tapioca to thicken the liquid into a gravy.
It looks good. I am not sure what all to season it with. I forgot I had bay leaves, so those didn’t go in. Bummer.

Bottle of Beer
Hoison Sauce (Vietnamese sauce that I can best describe as a thick soy sauce)
For being something just thrown together, it actually is pretty good. It needs a little something-something, I don’t know what, but it is good nonetheless.
