Restaurant Review: Hand-Me-A-Rib Barbecue In Vacaville, California
Do you like the idea of putting together an entire meal in ten minutes or less and have it look like you have been slaving in the kitchen all day? Use a slow cooker! You can put the ingredients in the slow cooker the night before and turn it on before you leave for work in the morning. You can be gone the entire time your meal is cooking and come home welcomed by the scent of heaven. There is no need for constant attention or stirring. All you have to do is add the ingredients and turn it on!

Yes, a BBQ joint - suspend disbelief for a second. Find a cute halter top and some city slicker boots and scoot on down to this country-moderne resto. Smoke't channels some of that good ol' Southern charm for ladies on Wednesday nights. From 3p to close, wines by the glass, martinis and appetizers (it's ok to get a bit down and dirty with the sauce) are half off. And from 4p - 7p, ladies score free glasses of bubbly to wash down those lip smackin' slow cooker pulled pork shoulder sliders.

Choosing between their brisket and ribs is tough -- neither option is wrong, but whichever one you choose, you always feel like you're missing out on the other one. But, although I could have gotten the combo plate, I was really feeling ribs, so ribs it was.

Hang a motivational poster. Something like "You become a success the moment you start moving toward your goal" can make you feel great every time you step on the treadmill. The motivation does not necessarily have to be exercise related, and can be work or family related. For example you may want to have pictures of Oprah Winfrey your own pictures when you were younger or business goals on a chart slow cooker pulled pork to motivate you.

To keep your lean cut of meat tender, I suggest cooking your healthy pork roast in a slow cooker. The slow cooker will gently cook the meat without removing any of the juices. If you choose to leave the layer of fat on the roast, put it fat side up so that the fat can help keep the meat moist. By the time your healthy roast is done, it will be so tender that it will be falling apart. I usually let my roasts cook 10 to 12 hours on low, but the time will depend on your slow cooker and how hot it gets.

I say, forget the grill on Memorial Day and stick how long to cook beef in slow cooker the oven. Choose an inexpensive cut of meat and braise it over low heat for a very long time. The results will be more free time for the host, a mountain of meat for your guests and a load off your wallet.

Also, remember that a perfectly acceptable barbeque sauce can be whipped up pulled pork recipe slow cooker uk nothing more than ketchup and a few other ingredients. Search out a few recipes and make your own. It lasts for weeks in the refrigerator, is much tastier than the bottled versions, and most likely contains less salt and preservatives.
