You know what it’s like, I know you do. Those days when you don’t have a minute to slow down. Getting kids off to school, getting yourself off to work, making lunches, checking homework, running errands…whatever it is that fills your day and makes life hectic. I’m talking about the days when can’t slow down enough to even think about making a homemade meal for your family. Well, what if I told you that you could put a meal on the table if you have a slow cooker and just 5 minutes to prepare. Could you find 5 minutes to make dinner? Of course you could! That’s less time than it takes to go through the drive-through, right?
So now you’re wondering how in the world you can make dinner in 5 minutes. The answer is Campbell’s new line of Slow Cooker Sauces. Even if you’re running in a dozen different directions during the day, these sauces are a great way to help you cook a real meal. All you have to do is put the sauce and meat in your slow cooker and let it do all the work for you. And there are lots of varieties to choose from: Tavern Style Pot Roast, Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, Beef Stew, Southern BBQ, Sweet Korean BBQ, and Hawaiian Pork. Don’t those sound great! I was recently asked to create a recipe using one of these sauces and I’ll tell you it was even easier than I expected. I popped my ingredients in the slow cooker, switched it on and that was that. Did I say 5 minutes earlier? Yeah – more like 3 for me.
Since I was asked to create something unique with one of the sauces, I did add one ingredient other than the sauce, but you don’t have to! They’re already a perfect mix of flavors and nothing extra is needed other than your meat of choice. The sauce I chose, Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, is obviously meant to be used with pork but knowing that whatever works with pork usually works with poultry, I opted for lean turkey breast. I added some thinly sliced bell pepper and let it all cook together for about 5 hours. At the end of cooking, I shredded the turkey breast into the sauce in the slow cooker, whipped up a little chili mayo, and popped that all on a slider bun topped with whole berry cranberry sauce and a bit of cilantro. Served with sides of sweet potato fries and steamed sugar snap peas – oh my gosh how delicious!
