Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Tag Archives: green beans

Side note here for those of you who care about my fashion posts: Today’s outfit post will be delayed until tomorrow as Michael took our good camera with him to Vegas and only left me with the spare who’s battery was dead. It is charging now, so hopefully I will be able to get some photos when I get home today (because I am finally wearing a dress!)

Onto the recipe:


About 2 lbs. pork tenderloin – but I’m guessing this would be good with any pork or chicken really

2 apples, cut into chunks

1 onion, cut into chunks

1/2 cup white wine

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. gluten free soy sauce

1 tsp. powdered ginger

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Onion Salt

Garlic powder


Salt and Pepper


Put apples and onions in bottom of slow cooker (I do all chopping the night before and just put pot in fridge)

Put tenderloins on top of the onions and apples

Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, onion salt, garlic salt and thyme

In a bowl mix together soy sauce, white wine, apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard and pour over tenderloins (I promise it looks a whole lot better than this when you come home! )

Cook on low all day and come home to this

Then enjoy! Michael told me this was his favorite pork yet! I served along with soy-ginger green beans (just sauteed frozen green beans with 1 Tbsp. butter, a few splashes of Tamari sauce (gluten free soy sauce), salt and a sprinkle of ginger.

You don’t even need an ingredient picture for this one, here it is – Chicken, Salsa, salt, pepper

Yep, that’s it. Put about 2 lbs. of chicken in crockpot in the morning, I used thighs and a few breasts I had left over – you can even just stick it in there frozen. Then put a little salt and pepper on chicken and cover with a container of salsa. I used an all natural mango lime salsa I picked up randomly at the Macy’s cafe, can’t remember what brand, but very good. It had no funky ingredients, and no added sugar.

Served it up with a side of green beans. Just sautee frozen green beans in skillet with a Tbsp. of butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add a little feta cheese if desired to skillet for a minute at the end.

Seriously, how easy was that? And not only easy, it was delicious! Don’t tell me you can’t open up a can of salsa and a bag of frozen green beans! : )
