Cooking Past Midnight
by Courtney C Horne @FireezDragon
Around 6 pm I put some pork, seasoning, apple juice, garlic, worcestershire, pickle juice, and ketchup in the slow cooker before I went out to an open mic night.
*note to white libertarian suburban boys trying to rap- you don’t sound cooler when you say misogynistic shit*
Around 1 am I pulled the pork out of the slow cooker, and used the liquid to start my sauce.
The full ingredient list:
For thickness- Ketchup, Marinara Sauce
For tang- Pickle juice
For heat- Srirachi
For spice- Sweet and Smokey rub, applewood rub, smoked sea salt, garlic, and onion powder
For sweetness- Apple juice and brown sugar
For unami- Worcestershire sauce
I used my immersion blender to smooth out the garlic cloves into the sauce. And right now it is simmering in the crock pot so that it can thicken up some.
