Yesterday, we got an unexpected snow day! Monday was so nice and felt like spring and then Tuesday rolled around and it did a 180. They forecasted 8-11 inches so I think that scared a lot of officials and schools because all the closings started to happen. Woke up in the morning and the government was closed so that was a nice :) I already had MLK day off on Monday and yesterday was just extending the long weekend. They said that today’s wind chill is supposed to be -17 degrees. Oh my gosh, I don’t even want to step foot out of my house. I think I’d literally freeze :) not quite sure how the midwest deals with this kind of cold every winter!

A month or so ago, I had a huge hankering for Korean tacos. There’s this food truck in DC that Jason and I LOVE and try to go to whenever we’re at work and the food truck is around our offices. Well, when I had the craving, it was the weekend and we weren’t anywhere near the city so I had to remedy the situation by creating Korean tacos at home. I found this recipe in the cookbook, 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie O’Dea. My friend at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt sent me her book and I couldn’t be more happy with it. Slow cooker recipes are my ultimate favorite and I know they’re your favorite too!

I loved the tenderness of the pork and the flavor! This pork and the sauce that accompanied it is bold, sweet, and tangy. Jason and I probably ate three tacos each and the leftovers were even better!

    I am testing this out this out this week as the head of the food committee for our ski trip! I bought pork loin chops for the inaugural run. Do you think these will cook faster than 9 hours? I wasn’t sure exactly which cut to buy. Any pointers?

      Those should work and yes, they should cook faster than 9 hours :)

    Can I cook on high for 3-4? Will that damage anything?

      No, it shouldn’t damage anything.

    If I double the recipe do I need to increase the cooking time? I’m guessing no but just thought I would check!

      No, you should be okay with the cooking time! Just make sure the roasts aren’t stacked on top of each other.
