Slow Cooker Dry Rub Pork Roast
I hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day! My kids are off school today, and are in the other room in a chocolate coma, giving me a few minutes to type. You'll love this pork. Unless you don't like pork. Then you should use a beef chuck roast or something similar. I had a frozen pork butt/shoulder in the freezer and wanted to make a pulled pork of some sort but wasn't feeling in the mood for barbecue sauce. I threw together this dry rub in a few seconds using pantry staples, and was really happy with the end result. The meat is perfect--- not gloppy wet, not dried out ---- just perfectly seasoned with a very pleasant flavor. The secret is the anise . Don't be scared that your meat will taste like black licorice --- I'm a red vine kind of girl (THEY ARE NOT GLUTEN FREE!) -- and always steered clear of anything black licorice, and I promise you that the anise just gives a lovely flavor you're not going to be able to recreate without it. A bottle will last you for quite a while, and if you have extra, my friend Jenny made some awesome cookies using anise . The Ingredients. serves 6 - 8 1 onion, peeled and sliced into rings 3 to 4 pounds pork roast (butt/shoulder) 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon ground corriander 1 tablespoon paprika 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon anise seeds 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 to 2 limes, for serving (optional) The Directions. Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Place the onion rings into the bottom of your cooker, and spread them apart a bit with your fingers. Place the pork directly on top --- my meat was still frozen. If there is netting on your meat, cut it away. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and all dry spices to create a rub. Using your fingers, rub this all over the meat, flipping a few times to ensure good coverage. Cover, and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until meat has lost shape and pulls apart easily with a large fork. Serve over a bed of rice or quinoa, or stuff into pita pockets, lettuce leaves, etc. I squeezed a bit of lime onto our servings, and enjoyed the contrast in flavors, but it's certainly not necessary. We had enough leftover for me to reheat on the stovetop ( or in the Ninja! ) with a 1/2 bottle of barbecue sauce the next day for sandwiches. The Verdict. I used to be allergic to pork; this last pregnancy re-programed my body , and I'm so happy that I can now add this meat into our meal rotation. I like how this seasoning blend doesn't create an overly sweet or sticky or gloppy meat --- not that those features are bad --- I just wasn't particularly in the mood for that, and this fit the bill! in other news: I made a DIY standing desk for myself out of an ironing board! I'm going to be on the Rachael Ray show again next Friday, the 22nd UPDATED: it's NOW TUESDAY, the 19th!! f or a few minutes. It's a 5-year follow-up to the first time I appeared. The premise of the clip is how "Rachael Ray changed my life" and I pretty much cried through the whole thing.... I promise to be more composed next time. :-) have a wonderful day!! . . . .
