Love pulled pork? This pulled pork recipe can be made in either a slow cooker, or a pressure cooker. Either cooking method will give you a flavorful roast you will find hard to resist.

Pulled Pork Recipe from CopyKat.com

Pulled pork is so easy to prepare with a pressure cooker. I personally love my Instant Pot. I use it for rice, beans, roast, short ribs, I have even made macaroni and cheese in my instant pot. This is a great way to cook meat during the summer. By using a pressure cooker you won’t heat up your kitchen by cooking in your oven. It also costs less in electricity to use an electric cooker.

For this recipe I like to use a pork butt roast, they are meaty and do have some fat in there, so you may want to trim this out. I personally like to trim only the surface excess fat, and then after cooking I will trim out the fat. I think this way you get a better flavored roast. Other cuts of pork that this would do well with would be a bone in pork roast, a shoulder roast, or a hind cut. I like to use cuts that have some fat and marbling. I do not think a pork loin would make a good cut of pork for pulled or shredded pork.

This recipe for pulled pork can be made mild or even spicy. The simple marinade of soy sauce, garlic, and brown sugar brings out the wonderful flavors of roasted pork. If you add a 7 ounce can of chipotle chilies in adbobo sauce you will have a wonderfully smokey seasoned shredded pork perfect for tacos. I have made this recipe many times at home with rave reviews.

When I make pulled pork tacos I like to serve this with pico de gallo, limes, and fresh cilantro. This makes for a light meal. You could add shredded cheese and sour cream if you like. This could easily be a complete meal with some refried beans.

Stouffers Macaroni and Cheese recipe has always been a favorite of mine. I have long wanted to put together a recipe for this classic dish just for you.

Stouffer Macaroni and Cheese from CopyKat.com

This copycat Stouffers Macaroni Cheese recipe is made completely from scratch. I know a lot of people want to cut out preservatives and they still want to enjoy their favorite flavors. This recipe uses a couple of types of cheese, and has a wonderful cheese flavor. This casserole then gets baked in the oven and the top can get the wonderful browned bits on top. I know now this dish typically get’s microwaved when you buy the frozen package, but when I was growing up, we cooked this one in the oven. It is because of this dish I have always loved a good baked macaroni and cheese recipe.

This recipe for macaroni and cheese is a basic recipe that starts with a cheese sauce that has two types of cheese in it for rich cheese flavor. I think by using two types of cheese you get a better cheese flavor, as it has more depth. My recipe for the Longhorn Steakhouse Macaroni and Cheese, features four different types of cheese which is wonderful for a once in awhile treat. This recipe is simple, and perfect for everyday.

While we normally use elbow pasta for this recipe, you could use other shapes of pasta if you desire. Sometimes I like to use shells, wheel shaped pasta, or another type of pasta. While the original recipe always uses the elbows you can feel free to substitute what you have around the kitchen.

Captain Ds Cole Slaw is a favorite of mine. Whenever people talk about their guilty pleasures, this would be one of mine. Their creamy sweet and savory cole slaw is simple to make, and it tastes wonderful.

Captain D's Cole Slaw recipe from CopyKat.com

The summer begs for picnics and cool and refreshing salads. Are you looking for an easy cole slaw recipe? This may be the one you like to dry. This recipe is made simply, chopped cabbage, chopped carrots, and a tangy slightly sweet sauce that is drizzled over these freshly chopped vegetables is hard to resist.

I personally am a huge fan of Captain Ds. This is one of the few chain fish and chip places around. I personally love fish when done in this style, while you shouldn’t enjoy it too often it can be a big treat. Whenever I go here, the cole slaw is what I go for first. This is a creamy cole slaw, and I personally love the note of celery seed in this recipe. It adds something that most cole slaw does not have.

I love this side dish, it is an inexpensive recipe to make. So this recipe is perfect for when you have a large crowd to serve. Homemade cole slaw tastes so much than any store bought version. Yes, you can buy a large tub of cole slaw in the store, but I often find the crunch of the cabbage gone, since this isn’t difficult to make, you should give this cabbage salad a try in your own home.

Restaurant Style Sweet and Sour sauce is very easy to make. I know that when you try making your own sweet and sour sauce you won’t buy another jar.
Sweet and Sour Sauce from CopyKat.com

It may seem like a mystery, you know, how to make sweet and sour sauce, but I promise it is very easy to do. You may even have the ingredients on hand if you want to make your own homemade sauce. One of the things I like most about recreating restaurant favorites is that you know exactly what you put in your own food. I know when you try this sauce you will be amazed at how much better it tastes than what you can buy in a jar.

Unlike many other online recipes this one includes actual fruits. Most contain very similar ingredients. They contain ketchup, yes, you read that right, sugar, vinegar, and water. This version has a more complex flavor because we are going to flavor our water with fresh oranges, lemons, and ginger. I think the natural fruit juice and oils that are extracted into the water really makes a large difference in the final flavor.

Many restaurants add tomato shade or red food coloring to the sauce when they prepare it. We kind of expect this sauce to be red. It is not a deep color naturally. It is a pale but dark pink color thanks to the ketchup. You can add a couple of drops of red food coloring to this dish if desired. It is your choice. It will taste the same either way. When you make this sauce at home, you get to choose how you want it.

This recipe will make about a quart of sweet and sour sauce, this will make the perfect amount for making sweet and sour chicken, and this would also go well some cream cheese puffs or perhaps some crab rangoon. You might even enjoy these with some chicken nuggets.

I find this recipe will store for a week to 10 days. So you may want to plan on serving up a couple of Asian inspired dishes so you won’t miss a single bit of this sauce.

Who doesn’t love Chili’s Skillet Queso? We all do. Chilis is known for this famous queso appetizer. You can make this recipe at home, it’s so easy to do, and I will show you how to do it in a slow cooker.

Chilis Skillet Queso made in a Slow Cooker Recipe from CopyKat.com


Chilis Skillet Queso has to be a favorite appetizer at Chilis restaurant. This recipe has been a menu item for over 20 years. Why not recreate this famous recipe at home. This is a nice change from your standard queso recipe. When you make this recipe in a slow cooker you have the ability to start this dip and let it melt and cook together. This means you are free to work on other things. This is a great dip to make for a party.

I love simple dips like this, easy to put together, and this chili cheese dip will make your crowd happy. You can put the ingredients in the slow cooker, move on and get the rest of your party or evening together. This recipe uses just three ingredients. You will want to use processed cheese, like Velveeta, I honestly think for this recipe a store brand works well too, and this way you can save some money and still make a great tasting dip.

The other ingredient is Hormel chili, no beans. Their chili doesn’t have beens in it, and if you want to duplicate this recipe, you won’t to put beans in yours either. I don’t know why, but this brand of chili always seems to go on sale right before the Super Bowl, so I like to pick up a few extra cans so I can prepare this special Chilis Skillet Queso any time of the year for less.
