Spring Rolls

These were so inexpensive and easy! Justin was on the counter "helping" so I cooked the cabbage a little longer than I would have liked and then I pulled them out of the oven just a bit before they were quite crispy way or another they were still really good:) I wish I could remember where I found this recipe!
1 bag of coleslaw shreds (or shred your own cabbage - 4 cups raw)
2 chicken bullion cubes, or 2 tsp bullion powder
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp olive oil
Soy sauce
Egg roll wrappers (I found them at Walmart near the bagged salad for about $2.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Saute the cabbage, bullion and ginger in olive oil on high heat, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted but not mush. Add a couple splashes of soy sauce (remember both the bullion and soy sauce are salty, so you may want to taste.)

Lay a wrapper on the counter with a corner facing you. Put a couple tablespoons of the cabbage mixture 2 inches from that corner and fold the corner over it. Fold the side corners in and roll down to the farthest corner. (I guess you could also roll them like a baby burrito, if that makes you happier.) Place seam side down on an ungreased cookie sheet, or pizza pan, etc. Repeat for all 12 wrappers. Spray the rolls with olive oil or Pam (for browning.) Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. They will be very hot when they come out, so it's a good idea to let them rest a few minutes.

SL Slow Cooked Orange Pork Roast Tacos

This sounded like a great way to make something besides the usual tacos with ground beef. I also never buy this cut of meat. It was good! I don't know that it was worth the price of buying orange marmalade but I would definitely cook another pork shoulder in the crockpot! Day two I shredded it and we had bbq sandwiches for lunch that were really good. To make this again I would start it the night before because at 8 hours it was nowhere near done. I removed the fat, turned it over and continued cooking it to get it done.
Also I used flour tortillas because we don't like corn.

SL Slow Cooked Orange Pork Roast Tacos

Recipe courtesy Sandra Lee


* 1 medium onion, chopped * 1 (10-pound) bone-in pork shoulder, picnic cut * 2 tablespoons soy sauce * 1 tablespoon chopped garlic * 2 teaspoons salt * 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper * 1 cup orange marmalade * 20 corn tortillas

Also buy:



Place the onions in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker. Place the pork shoulder, fat and skin side up. in the slow cooker. In a medium bowl stir together soy sauce, garlic, salt pepper and orange marmalade. Pour mixture over the pork. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove shoulder to a serving platter and let rest for 5 minutes. Break up some of the meat with a fork and arrange on platter. Leave the rest of the meat on the bone to keep it warm and moist and let your guest pull it off the as they need it.

Wrap the tortillas in damp towels, 10 to a towel and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Set out pork and tortillas with Cabbage Slaw and have guests assemble their own tacos.
