Oh joy… Long weekend for Andres!😜 Mik’s flight was in the afternoon yet, so I knew I will have the morning all by myself because he’ll be getting up late in the morning. 😊 I had my usual coffee and then leisurely, I tried to organize my stuff in the kitchen. I also washed and set up my new “toy”, my slow cooker, and then I started to make Barbecue Pulled Pork in the slow cooker. For lunch, I made Beef Curry. 😋😅 The house smelled of curry and barbecue. 😁 I had to open all the windows! 😜
For the Pulled Pork, I based the mixture from this recipe, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/92462/slow-cooker-texas-pulled-pork/. I added half a teaspoon of liquid smoke to the mixture to give some smokey taste. (This is optional, I just happen to have some. 😜) The barbecue sauce, I made from scratch. 😋 (Mixture of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, salt, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder and brown sugar…. I let it boil over fire) I also set the cooking time to 6 hours on high.
For the Beef Curry, I used this, http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/fragrant-beef-curry-with-rice-104202, I used sukiyaki beef. (curry powder and chili powder can be adjusted, I added more curry powder.) 😋😊
Late in the afternoon, I also made some coleslaw to go with the pulled pork. I used 1 head cabbage and 1 carrot (shredded). I mixed in some minced onions, sugar, salt, pepper, white vinegar, lemon juice, milk and buttermilk. I let it rest in the fridge before serving.
I served the pulled pork on toasted bread with butter with the coleslaw as side dish. 😊😘 Andres loved the cole slaw!!
My new toy passed with flying colors! 😜👍🏻
