The story: When we asked our farmers’ market customers to pin their favorite slow cooker recipe to our ideas and favorites board for new zen blends, Pulled Pork was in popular demand. This smoky and savory Smoky BBQ is our answer to what is clearly an American classic.
Zen Spice Spotlight: Paprika has a deliciously deep orangey red color and lends a smoky note to the pulled pork. Cayenne brings a generous helping of Capsaicin which delivers a natural, pleasant happy feeling.
Occasions: Smoky BBQ is a perfect addition for any party, whether it’s a July 4th potluck celebration or an appetizer for SuperBowl Sunday, it takes the heat out of your kitchen and makes a flavorful dish for friends and family.
Complete your meal: Serve red cabbage, carrot and onion coleslaw with a reduced fat creamy mayonnaise, sour cream and lime juice dressing.
To drink: Fresh lemonade or tart hard cider pairs well.
