This tip requires so little cooking, I’m almost hesitant to share it here as though it’s a recipe. It’s more of a faux recipe, and for that, I’m in love. Because sometimes I just don’t have the time or the energy to create a delicious meal. Sometimes all I want, all I need in the world, is my own personal *Jamie Oliver.
*For strictly cooking purposes.
Here it is: You can combine any meat (chicken, beef, pork) with any pre-made bottled sauce (marinades, salsa, marinara, you name it), and set it to cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, and what you will be left with is nothing short of marvelous.
Just two ingredients. One of which you didn’t even make yourself.
Chicken and salsa? It works. Pork and honey barbecue sauce? It works. Ground beef and marinara? Don’t make me say it again.
Use enough sauce to cover the meat (about 1.5 to 2 cups) and let the mix slowly cook all day long. The finished product will be not only infused with the flavor of the sauce (a reason to use only sauces you love!), but it will be so tender it falls apart upon fork contact.
