Slow Cooker Pork and Noodles

This has been a weird week with the weather however, it is Illinois and the weather is always unpredictable. It was cold and rainy this past Sunday and we were in the “lazy day” mood. I whipped out my magnificent slow cooker and threw some things together (thanks to my great friend Ryan for texting me most of the ingredients) and I covered it. I was hoping to make another amazing pork steak meal in the slow cooker but the meat fell apart and that’s when I decided to add the noodles and extra broth. I was a little worried at first but it turned out to be a great meal! I love going to the Amish shoppe and I had purchased some garlic egg noodles. I hardly had to use any seasonings at all. It was fantastic! I will definitely make this again! Hope you give this a try and PLEASE ENJOY!!

Makes: 6 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:

pork and garlic noodles 001

2 pork steaks (about 1 1/2 pounds total)

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup + 3/4 cup water

5-6 cups of water

16 oz egg noodles (or kluski noodles and add 1 tsp garlic powder-when you add the noodles)

Cover and let cook for approximately 8 hours (my pork steaks were frozen) time will differ for thawed pork steaks. Once they are cooked then pull the bones out and tear up the meat. Add the remaining 5-6 cups of water….

You may need to add more water, depends on how thick you like the sauce….(pasta sucks up liquid)

This has great flavor and we didn’t add much salt since pork is usually salty….This would also be great with sweet peppers and a little parsley….
