I like to call this "The Worlds Greatest Sandwich". Cooked overnight in a crock pot, the meat is tender, juicy, and messy..the way a BBQ sandwich should be. Top it with your favorite cole slaw, and you have one tasty meal.
There is just something about pork and a sweet sauce. This easy and fast dish fits well into a busy weeknight but is dressy enough for company. Topped with a sweet honey pecan glaze that will tempt even the pickiest eaters. The cayenne really makes this come to life, however if you have little ones please feel free to reduce or eliminate it. The small amount here is just enough to tingle your taste buds not set your mouth on fire.
Chef Tom Kenny of Mike Ditka's Restaurant in Chicago is the creator of this delicious marinade and Orange Aioli. I confess I've left the pork in the marinade for up to a couple of days and I think it tastes even better. And the Orange Aioli is to die for and in fact tastes good as a chicken sandwich dressing. All in all, it's a great sandwich and very easy! Prep time includes marinating the pork.
This has been a family favorite for years, it's an easy recipe that may also be made in an electric skillet instead of the oven, I have made this using cubed pork in place of the pork steaks/chops, and you can also make this using chicken pieces, see recipe#348602 the pork steaks can be browned in a skillet first if desired for extra flavor, use only low-sodium soy sauce for this, serve with cooked rice
This recipe is from "Our School Cookbook", a cookbook compiled by elementary students in a school from Truro, Nova Scotia. I like recipes that are easy, flavorful and look appealing when being served. All in all, a great pork chop recipe.
These have to be, hands down, the BEST meal I have EVER made in a crock pot. I borrowed a friend's crock pot one weekend and made this for my honey. Low and behold, I got a crock pot for my next birthday along with a request for this recipe to be the first thing I made. I really wish I know where I got the recipe from because I would LOVE to give credit for it. I beg of you, do yourself a favor and try this. You will NOT regret it. Let me know what you think!!
This meal is one we always eat too much of. I recommend using Sweet Baby Ray's or Jack Daniel's original BBQ sauce. A good quality sauce makes a lot of difference. I serve it with my Sweet, Creamy Coleslaw #100526.
