Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

vaguely vietnamese tacos: results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas

Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for it, yesterday, when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I hope you’ll think these Tacos are worth that little delay.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

It IS possible to make great ribs in the slow cooker - one's that aren't cooked to death, limp soggy slap you on the chin when you try to take a bite ribs. These are succulent, juicy and have the perfect "bite!" And they taste great!

Does it seem you wait and wait and wait for Summer and all of a sudden it’s just too dang hot? And as we’ve all heard, “It’s not the heat it’s the humidity.” What exactly IS that supposed to mean, anyway? Don’t ever say that to me. I’ll be cranky when it’s too hot and give you a “look.” You know the kind of look I mean…the one that says “What in the H E double hockey sticks are you talking about?!”

Slow Cooker Barbacoa (Shredded Beef)

Slow Cooker Barbacoa - a family favorite. A handful of ingredients and the pay off! Makes enough to freeze some.

I’m always on the lookout for budget protein and when I saw this Rump roast at a great sales price I picked it up. Rump can be a tough, dry cut, sometimes a bit tasteless but cooked long and slow in a flavorful bath of aromatics and spices I knew it would be luscious.

Ropa Vieja

Ropa Vieja - National dish of Cuba. Beef cooked with peppers and onions until it's beautiful shreds.

Ropa Vieja. Translates to old clothes or old rags – gosh that name just does not do this lovely meal justice! Slowly simmered beef, simmered until it’s all but fallen apart, with garlic and cumin and aromatics. And peppers. Oh my.
