I don’t typically make meals in the crock pot in the summer. We grill a lot, but I just might have to start using the crock pot more often. The house smelled delicious when I walked in the door and 20 minutes later we were eating.
In the crock pot place beef short ribs with
8oz tomato sauce
I have a concentrated chili pepper in a tube I used 2T, you could also use chili sauce
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 Cup beef broth
Turn on High for 6 hours
When we were in North Carolina,
Lexington to be specific we had a BBQ Slaw that was delicious. It’s not your typical white coleslaw and since you know I don’t prefer mayonaise, making a cole slaw that has a different base sounded really good to me, I looked it up and Bobbie Flay had the recipe posted so I gave it a try. My husband LOVED it, it’s nice and spicy. Cayenne pepper, ketchup and vinegar is the base, with a touch of sugar salt and pepper.
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons vinegar
- ½ cup ketchup
- 2 cups cabbage, chopped
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate for an hour.
I pressed Basmati rice in to small heart shaped tins and drizzled a touch of BBQ sauce on top, along side of some roasted corn I cut off the cob. We enjoyed a great dinner.
Do you use a crock pot in the summer, or mainly in the winter. If you can’t tend to the grill, the crock pot is a great alternative.
