Mediterranean Pork Loin with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Olives

If you follow me on Facebook, or on Instagram, you know that I ROYALLY screwed up this week.

After a busy winter baking, grilling and with the kids coming home from college and doing a BOATLOAD of laundry, I ran out of propane.

Totally my fault as I was supposed to call and ask for a refill, but.... you know you get busy. Life happens, right?

Well, that meant I had no stovetop, no oven and no grill to make dinner. What's a girl to do?

Whip out the Crock Pot!

I went to the freezer and grabbed a package of good old pork loin. I threw the whole thing in frozen (yep, no way to defrost it!) and stared at my spices trying to get creative.

My Spice Cabinet, LOL. (And YES- you can get the top labels! Click here.)

 

What we wound up with for dinner was nothing short of delicious!  This week I bring you Mediterranean Pork Loin with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Olives. OMG YUM!

As always, you start out with some simple, fresh ingredients:

Throw everything in the Crock Pot and then walk away.

The dinner that emerges 4 hours later is SOOOO delicious! I sliced the pork, drizzled with a little of the broth in the bottom of the slow cooker and served it with a big old salad to rave reviews.

 

Once again, necessity proves to be the mother of invention, LOL. If you're looking for quick, easy and delicious, this one is for you!

While I'm happy to say that the screw up of this week turned into a great recipe, I"m also happy to have my tank refilled and be back up and running!

Happy Cooking-

Stacey
