Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork–and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw………………………….

Five-Spice Pulled Pork Sandwiches
These pulled pork sandwiches are designed to travel to a tailgate or picnic. Plan ahead to prep the pulled pork in the slow cooker a day ahead. Tote the pork in an aluminum pan and reheat it on a portable grill…………………………………..

This recipe for bison and vegetable kabobs with couscous salad is a great way to bring big flavors to a healthy diet.

Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup and 1/4 cup, extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
