Slow Cooker Chinese Barbecue Pork {Char Sui}

This slow cooker Chinese barbecue pork, or char sui, is pretty much meat candy. It's pork that has been cooked for several hours in the slow cooker, and then brushed with with a Chinese-style barbecue sauce and broiled until crispy and caramelized.

This Slow Cooker Chinese Barbecue Pork, or Char Sui, is such an easy way to prepare pork butt (or Boston butt). I like to make a big batch of it to use in dishes such as barbecue pork lo mein and Singapore noodles. It's also delicious added to fried rice.

Bittersweet Chocolate Caramel Pecan Tarts

These Bittersweet Chocolate Caramel Pecan Tarts are decadent and delicious. They are seriously elegant, and perfect for a small party or a romantic dinner for two.


Bittersweet Chocolate Caramel Pecan Tarts




This recipe for chocolate caramel pecan tarts makes two 4 inch tarts. It's up to you as to how many servings that is. I like a quarter piece, and Mr. Kitchen can easily polish off half a tart (he has the skinny gene). The recipe can also be easily scaled and adapted for a muffin tin or a larger tart. Just bring your geometry skills.

This red clam chowder is incredibly delicious on its own, but I am so in love with how the saltine, parsley, and garlic flavor bomb thickens and flavors the soup when it is added as a garnish.
