None of this meal was cooked on my stove. Rather, the pork roast was in the slow cooker from about 4pm to 8:30pm when we ate. Mark seasoned it with seasoned salt, garlic powder, fresh ground pepper, and red pepper flakes. Then we pretty much left it alone until we ate. I sliced it against the grain and arranged in the serving bowl.

The rest of the meal was cooked in my rice cooker/steamer. I cooked the brown rice first, then transferred it to the bowl and covered it loosely with a clean towel in order to keep the warmth. After that I added more water to the rice cooker, then sliced 3 zucchini directly into the steamer basket. I like this method because cooking rice creates a bit of a rice film on the bottom of the cooker, and heating the water to steam the vegetables softens this film. This makes it much easier to clean.

After moving the zucchini to its dish, I seasoned it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and butter. We each had a nice cold Fat Tire with dinner. It was great!
