Since I love cooking at home I was excited to be asked to review VH Sauces. I’m a huge fan of their sauces and dips. All home cooks should keep some quick and easy meal plans in the ready. VH sauces can help you do that. You never know when you might find yourself with guests for dinner or just dropping in for the evening.
I decided to try out a few recipes using VH instead of my own sauce.
Entertaining on the weekend just got a lot simpler for me. First of all I had to decided on a menu! Not too hard really. I chose a vh recipe for flatbread appetizer which I altered for the ingredients I already had on hand and a platter of cucumbers, crackers, cheese and fruit for nibbling. Pulled pork using VH Garlic Rib Cooking Sauce to be served on buns.
Now I had to get to work.
My slow-cooker was pulled out from the pantry and I took 2lbs of pork tenderloin and the bottle of VH Garlic Rib and poured it over top. Set for 7.5 hours on low, shred meat with two forks, return to slow cooker and mix in sauce.That’s it you’re done! That wasn’t so hard was it?
The flat breads are a VH recipe “Grilled Sweet Chili Flatbreads“. A yummy appetizer or evening treat. I made one change and used feta cheese because it’s what I had on hand.
4 Greek style flatbreads about 7″
1/2 cup VH Sweet Thai Chili sauce
1/2 cup green onions finely sliced
1/2 cup goat cheese crumbled
Pam grilling spray
1. Divide the chili sauce between flatbreads, spread evenly, sprinkle with green onion and crumble cheese on top
2. spray grill with Pam and heat to med low and grill for about 8 min
3. cut into wedges and serve.
Yum! Served 6 people with tons of leftovers.
