Pork Zuppa

Pork Zuppa
Just as good as your favorite restaurant, but healthier.

 

It can be hard to take a loved one with Alzheimer’s to a restaurant. Now you have a soup that is just as delicious to make at home. This rich Italian soup, made with ground pork and potatoes, is sure to satisfy everyone who tries it. Using a slow cooker makes this recipe easy to execute.

Ingredients

Directions

  • In a large skillet cook pork, onion, and garlic over medium heat until meat is browned and onion is tender; drain off fat. Return meat mixture to skillet; add oregano, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add broth and potatoes.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours (see Tip). If using a low-heat setting, turn to a high-heat setting. In a small bowl combine evaporated milk and cornstarch until smooth; stir into cooker. Stir in kale. Cover and cook for 30 to 60 minutes more or until bubbly around the edge of the cooker. If desired, sprinkle with additional crushed red pepper.

Tips

Tip: For easy cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in the recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
