Jack Daniel’s Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Angie’s Sweet & Spicy Salsa Recipe
Crockpot Jack Daniel’s Barbecue Pulled Pork and Brown Rice
- One carton Jack Daniel’s Pulled Pork
- 2-4 servings of brown rice (add water per servings of rice)
- Sweet Tea Marinade (HEB brand, but you can make your own sweet tea and use it)
Cook on low 2-3 hours.
This week I’ve been creating crockpot recipes. Yesterday I needed to have dinner ready at 5:00 pm. For the crockpot menu, I chose brown rice and Jack Daniel’s Seasoned and Cooked Pulled Pork with Jack Daniel’s Barbecue Sauce that you’re supposed to heat and serve.
First of all, I made more rice than I should have. Second, brown rice takes a while to cook in the crockpot. Third, I took a chance and added the pork in the crockpot with the rice. The pulled pork and brown rice medley didn’t get done by the expected time. But I didn’t give up yet. I put some in a dish and placed it in the microwave. After a few minutes, I took it out of the microwave, put it back into the crockpot, and mixed in a cup of my BBQ & Sweet Tea sauce with the Jack Daniel’s barbecue sauce.
You have cooking days like that. Right? You know what I’m talking about. I ended up cooking the rice and pork in the crockpot for a few more hours. Previously, I had made the incredible falling-off-the-bone Crockpot BBQ & Sweet Tea Chicken Drumsticks I blogged about Thursday. To solve the dinner-time dilemma, I heated up the chicken, chopped up and cooked mixed vegetables on the griddle, and served the following menu:
- Left-over-BBQ chicken with BBQ-Sweet Tea sauce
- Green spinach & herb tortillas
- Angie’s Sweet & Spicy Salsa (see recipe below)
- Left-over-Greek salad
- Left-over-vegetable salad
- Stir-fry vegetables cooked on the griddle (with a spoonful of coconut oil):
- Red bell pepper
- Sweet onion
- Yellow crooked-neck squash
- Fresh herbs from the garden: dill, oregano, and cilantro
That may seem like enough food for an army, but it was enough for two people – and was SO good. A little vegetable salad. Just enough cooked veggies.
- 1 Jalapeno
- 3 Large Tomatoes
- Garlic Clove
- Sweet Onion (about 1/4)
- Salt & Pepper
- 1/2 Can Sweet Corn
- Optional: Extra Seasonings
- 1 Can Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies
- Fresh Dill and Oregano Herbs
- Chop all the vegetables.
- Add vegetables and herbs to a blender.
- Add the two canned vegetables.
- Choose the chop, grate, mix, and blend options on the blender.
The meal made perfect burritos, topped off with the salsa.
Today we ate the brown rice and pulled pork. It reminded me of the rice and small pieces of veggies mixed in that you find at a Chinese restaurant. They also make good burritos with, of course, Angie’s Special Sweet & Spicy Salsa.
