I have been eyeing a Crock Pot for a while now because I think it would be something that would benefit me and my family a lot. It has been hugely beneficial and I love it. You put everything in one pot, put the timer on and leave the house (if you want that.) You don’t have to watch it, add more liquid to it, you just wait until it gets done. Making everything in one pot makes me not go insane.
They come in different sizes. I got the big one that holds 5 litres since every other week we are seven people, that’s right, seven. Just let that sink in for a while. Now even though I love food, I do food blogging as my living, cooking everyday dinners for that many people is a challenge. Then, on the other hand, we have the similar problem cooking healthy for two. However, that’s a whole other post.
Back to the slow cooker pulled pork, it’s easy and delicious. Just make sure it’s moist and really well seasoned. You need a lot less fluid when you use a Crock Pot, which is fantastic because you really don’t need to watch the pork. It will be moist. I also made a really nice hot sauce to it for anyone who likes loads hot. Which I myself don’t really like, but I’m the odd one out it looks like.
I also serve it with coleslaw and pickled red onions, it’s such a beautiful way the different textures and flavours meet in one bite.
Not so quick, but easy chilli sauce
You make this after the slow cooker pulled pork is done and use the broth that is in the pan. Now, because you can use the Crock-Pot on the stove too, you don ‘t have to use an additional pot.
1/2 litre of the pulled pork broth
4 tbsp agave syrup or 50 gr sugar
1/2-1 Habanero chilli, chopped. (remove the seeds)
1 tbsp soy sauce
Bring to a boil and cook it for 2 hours, until reduced. It is very tasty! I used 1/2 a habanero chilli, and it was really hot.
