Crock Pot Shredded Pork with Sherry-Orange Dijon Sauce

Crockpot Shredded Pork with Sherry-Orange Dijon Sauce at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

Do you have a favorite crock pot shredded pork recipe? I bet that you make it with barbecue sauce! How about slow cooking some shredded pork with a Sherry-Orange Dijon Sauce with Holland House Sherry Cooking Wine instead? I made this for Christmas dinner and served it over brown rice – delicious! I loved combining the pork with the dried cherries, though you could use dried cranberries, golden raisins or even dried plums. It’s an elegant twist on an old favorite and very easy to make any night of the week.

Serve the shredded pork over brown rice or quinoa. Or buy some whole wheat or gluten free buns and make sliders for your next football watching party!

Thanksgiving sides: Okra Pickles

Okra Pickles at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

I’ve decided to serve a southern style Thanksgiving this year. Well, what could be more southern than okra pickles? Even better, this recipe gives me a chance to use Holland House’s White Wine Vinegar along with several spices that have been crowding my cupboards for years.

This is also a great recipe for those who are new to canning or making pickles as it’s very easy to do. To sterilize your mason jars, you can wash them on the hottest setting on your dishwasher or boil them in a big pot.

The recipe is based on this one from the November 2012 issue of Saveur magazine. I used two quart jars for the pickles, since that’s what I had on hand. Feel free to do that or use a two quart jar instead. Since pickles can be refrigerated for up to a month, this is perfect for making a week or two before Thanksgiving!
