    Crock Pot Loin with Roasted Red Peppers
    After our 4th Annual Manday event I had a leftover 2lb loin and some roasted peppers in a tupperware container, and since I hate to waste anything and Sunday was a get together with my family for Amanda's Birthday, I figured I would have plenty of Guinea Pigs to try this out.

    Fortunately everyone liked it but most everyone thought it was chicken.

    For a smoky flavor  to your pork Loin you can score the top and cold smoke for an hour or so, you can also use liquid smoke[​IMG].

    I did not use exact measurements, this is one of those throw it in there recipe.

    • Line the bottom of your crock pot with 3/8" - 1/2" thick onion slices, turn the crockpot on high.

    • Crosshatch the top of the loin (opposite fat side). Place fat side down on the onion slices

    • Season with your spices, I used Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Minced Onion, coarse pepper and Old Bay

    • Add a few wet ingredients, I used Mustard, Ketchup and Honey.

    • Top with Roasted Red Peppers

    • Using a fork pull on the pork, When the pork is starting to get flaky, place the onions on top and slice them up a pit, then pull the pork with a fork, shredding the roasted peppers along with the pork, you can use a coarse pull or cook longer and shred. There should be plenty of liquid but if it looks too dry, you can add 1/4 cup of Pineapple or Apple Juice.

      • Coarse pull

      • Shredded

    I plan on doing this with several other variations
    • Roasted Red Peppers and Pineapples
    • Red Peppers, Pineapple, Coconut Rum
    • Mango, Roasted Red Pepper and Roasted Garlic
    • Buffalo Style: Creole Butter and Red hot

    I think it was 1 hour high then when it started bubbling I turned to low for 3 or 4 more hours

    Tacos sound great. season with cumin , chili powder and some taco seasoning
