Drunken Pulled Pork

No no, I wasn’t drunk! I did, however, get the food tipsy! I love the convenience factor of this recipe. That all you have to do is mix some stuff together (and, in my case, steal a beer from my husband), chop a few things and pour into a slow cooker is very appealing to me when I’m having a lazy day. It is tender, people, so very tender, and tasty too. You can add barbecue sauce to the pork once you’ve shredded it, that’s entirely up to you. I popped some bread rolls into the oven and crisped them, added the pork and mustard and served with potato wedges. It’s so easy! This is the perfect recipe to put on in the morning, go about your day and come home to a perfectly cooked piece of delicious pork, or put on before you go to bed and wake up to a kitchen that smells irresistible!

Drunken pulled pork 2 2Carefully remove the meat from the slow cooker and shred. This is easy because it’s so tender and basically just falls apart. Scoop out the carrots from the slow cooker and discard. Put the shredded pork into a large bowl and mix some of the juices with it.

Slow Cooked Teriyaki Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken 2

Do you ever have days where you want something tasty for dinner but don’t feel like slaving? Of course you do! Enter this recipe. Sweet, succulent, tender chicken breasts with zingy ginger makes this meal delicious and best of all, it’s easy, as in 5 minutes of prep time easy. In requires one step. Yes, one, which goes to show that delicious food need not take you all day!

I favour bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts. The meat falls off the bone, falls! It’s tender, juicy and packed with flavour and requires very little PT. Mix the ingredients, pour over the chicken and slow cook for a few hours, turning once. That’s all there is to it!
