Carnitas by Sergio Hernandez

Carnitas are the Mexican version of pulled pork. Braised first in a spicy sauce, pork shoulder is slow cooked until so tender the meat just shreds easily with a fork, then it's roasted at high heat to make crispy browned bits full of flavor.

Barbacoa De Cabeza

Barbacoa De Cabeza by Sergio Hernandez

Barbacoa de Cabeza is a slow cooked dish prepared with parts from the head of a cow, such as the cheeks. Popular in South Texas, I've adapted the dish to be cooked using your Slow Cooker, Pressure Cooker, or Smoker/Oven Combo to create this tasty dish.

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet by Smokinhotchef

This recipe sings low country with high notes. A very significant part of African American heritage and culture. Pig's feet, along with the other 'undesirable' discarded parts, like ears and chittlins' were a staple in the slaves' diets as well as pinto beans and cornbread, also their personal vegetable gardens. This was sustainable…

Braised Beef Short Ribs

Braised Beef Short Ribs by John Spottiswood

We have a couple of recipes for short ribs, and this is probably the most traditional. It has a rich beef flavor and the meat falls off the bones. If the choice is available, we normally use English style short ribs instead of Korean short ribs (also called flanken-style) because the English shortribs are usually cheaper and it…

Chiapas Pot Roasted Pork - Cochito Chiapaneco

Chiapas Pot Roasted Pork - Cochito Chiapaneco by John Spottiswood

I adapted this delicious, crispy-edged meat recipe from Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen. Nancy and I used to eat at his restaurant, the Frontera Grill, when we lived in Chicago. I served this over black beans and rice along with my spicy Ropa Vieja recipe and it was a huge hit. This would be a great alternative to carnitas for a…

Oven Brisket with Au Jus

Oven Brisket with Au Jus by myra byanka

This brisket recipe makes a very flavorful natural gravy that can be used for French Dip Sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and other things. Since beef broth is complicated to make, I save the leftover au jus and freeze it.

Carnitas by coachjeff

Of all the mexican style meats, Carnitas is by far my favorite. Its great to serve in simple tacos or as a main course. Made of flavorful pork with minimal seasonings, its the two step cooking process that puts carnitas over the top. First its braised, or slowly roasted until its fork tender. Then its fried until a fine crust adds a…

Pork chops with chops! These nicely spiced cuts can be toned up or down, depending on your taste. Gluten-free diners will enjoy these with King Arthur, Domata or Hodgson Mill flour. All Purpose works just fine. Thanks to Chef Austin for the inspiration!

Coffee Braised Beef with Bacon and Mushrooms

Coffee Braised Beef with Bacon and Mushrooms by Michael Montgomery

Coffee Braised Beef with Bacon and Mushrooms I have a confession to make. I really like my Crock Pot. Yes it's true. It does a great job on slow braises like this. Now that that's out there, I'll raise my head up high and tell you how to make this. The bacon, mushrooms and coffee give this a real depth of flavor. You don't really…

The amount of spices in this particular recipe is left up to your individual taste.

This dish is especially perfect for those cool winter days as well as rainy ones when you yearn for the smell of long cooked meats to…

Slow-Braised Atlanta Brisket

Slow-Braised Atlanta Brisket by Foodiewife

Brisket is a cut of beef that can be very tough, unless it is slow-braised or with a slow barbecue method. The patience pays off, because the meat becomes very tender and moist. I saw this recipe on Cook's Country, and was intrigued that the recipe name comes from using Coca Cola (from where the soft drink originates). Instead of…
