Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Bourbon-Peach Barbecue Sauce

Summer months are just meant for barbecue. And not just barbecued foods on the grill; your slow cooker can make some mean pulled pork for you as well! This recipe is perfect for a crowd and is great on a kaiser bun with some coleslaw! I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine, made it over the weekend, and enjoyed it during the week for a quick meal to assemble. I also froze half of the pork to bring to the beach for my extended family to enjoy and it held up great! I changed the recipe a bit because I ended up with a 5.5 pound pork shoulder so I altered the amounts to compensate for that. Ingredients: 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 (5 1/2-pound) bone-in pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), trimmed 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup unsalted chicken stock 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar 2/3 cup molasses 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper 1 8 oz jar peach preserves 2 cups vertically sliced onion 8 garlic cloves, roughly chopped 1/2 cup bourbon 3 tablespoons cold water 1 tablespoons … Continue reading

Not only is my recipe now available through Cooking Planit, but I also won some snazzy prizes, including an amazing assortment of Formaggio products.

I’ve had smoked mozzarella in the past and found the flavor to be a bit… overwhelming… so I was interested to see if I could get it to work well in a recipe instead of becoming the only flavor you can taste. But Formaggio’s smoked mozzarella was a pleasant surprise! The smoky flavor is present without being overpowering and works to enhance other flavors instead of covering them up. I found this recipe for Pasta Rustica with Smoked Mozzarella on Bon Appetit and altered the amounts of the ingredients to fit my taste.   Ingredients: 16 oz package frozen cheese tortellini 4 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium onion, sliced 12 … Continue reading
