Is there anything cooler than a slow cooker? Prep the meat before going to work, let it slowly cook all day long, then come home to a finished homemade meal!? Self high five!
This recipe was adapted from Skinny Taste. Brown a decent sized pork shoulder on all sides and combine in the slow cooker with chicken stock, adobo peppers, 2 bay leaves, salt, pepper and adobo seasoning. Set the temperature and go about your day!
To build the burrito bowl, microwave or boil one cup of white or brown rice and juice one lime into it. Next come the toppings and you can do this any way you want. Here's how I prefer it: salsa on top of the rice. What kind? Any kind! I really liked Ousley Ouch's Peach Mango Habanero. Next, the pulled pork and some of the juices. The rest is random: fresh lettuce, roasted red peppers, a dab of sour cream, sliced avocado, shredded cheddar cheese, hot sauce and a slice of lime! Boom!
I get flavors of the spicy. sweet juicy pork mingling with the peach mango salsa, the crunch of fresh cut cool lettuce, sweet and charred peppers, tangy sour cream and the soothing noted of creamy avocado. So hard to eat this dish *slow*! (see what I did there?)
Of course, you could also make tacos out of this recipe. That's totally allowable.
Other beers I would like to try with this recipe are: Stone Ruination 2.0, SweetWater IPA, and Terrapin High-5!
Thanks for reading! See you at the dinner table.

Tis the season to grill EVERYTHING! I love it. Not only because I really enjoy the flavor of chargrilled tasties, but also because all you really have to do is chop things up or marinate them then enjoy a cocktail whilst playing with tongs!
I found this pre-marinated pork tenderloin at the store for a decent price, so I decided to give it a try. Half the work was already done, so why not!?
Cue this dinner's theme music.
It was a simple but effective pairing. The ESB was absolutely stunning. Anything that can bring back memories warms my heart and my liver. The power of beer and memory fascinates me!
Meals like this are a good example of taking 2 simple items, in this case, pork and an ESB, and bringing them together to take the dining experience to a new level. The ESB is full-bodied enough to be able to handle the spices while the pork created enough bark to withstand the sweetness of the ale.
The food and beer play off and with each other making you want another bite. The pork alone would be pretty boring. The ESB gave it LIFE.
And that's why I do what I do.
So till next time, eat well and drink happily.
Welcome to my blog! I want to show the world a simple meal paired with craft beer can elevate their dining experience to unique levels. Cheers!
