Cooking With Kids and a Killer Pulled Pork Recipe #ClubHouseRecipeMix #Giveaway
We have done pulled pork before here on Cooking With Kids, but this week I got a great variety of spices from McCormick’s and Club House, so because pulled pork is such a hit with the whole family well I just had to try this one immediately. As I said, we have made pulled pork here with my own recipe, but I wanted to see how much punch the ClubHouse Recipe Mix for Pulled Pork added. Now, my kids, at this age and stage of their development, are fussier than they ever were as toddlers. They eat well most days, and they love their fruits and vegetables, but I don’t know what it is about dinner that makes them turn into two-headed monsters, but that’s generally the scene at dinner.
What are we having? –quickly evolves into a battle that is “I’m not eating that!” Or “I’d rather have a peanut butter sandwich,” which makes me want to quit cooking forever.Then I am on the defensive and peaceful family dinner unravels. But well, there are a few dishes we all agree on. Pizza. Chicken with the marinade I often make here that’s really simple. Macaroni and cheese. Lasagna. And pulled pork. They’ve helped me make pulled pork before and they love it. It’s a simple dinner dish and delicious as well as affordable. My regular recipe is just brown sugar and barbeque sauce with a bit of onion in a crock pot. This ClubHouse Pulled pork spice packet asked for brown sugar, cider vinegar and ketchup. Mix that with the spice package and cook your pork shoulder roast in the crock pot for the day. Low temperature is good enough. So, was it as good as mine? Was it better?
Unfortunately, you can’t ask my children because they were too busy eating quietly, happily, and peacefully.
“What’s for dinner?” they asked when they got in from school the other night and I told them. “ClubHouse Pulled Pork.” I can’t tell you how great it is to hear peaceful eating at dinner and to hear your kids squeal with joy for dinner. Be still my little heart. Oh and then: “Can we take it for lunch tomorrow,” they asked. Oh my! Sweet sweet ClubHouse.
My assessment of this delicious recipe mix. Well, it sure packed a punch. I liked it in a different way from the one I make. The one I make is super sweet and my husband occasionally finds it a bit too rich with sugar. (Oops, my bad!) This ClubHouse one didn’t overdo the sweet flavours at all. It was a recipe with a distinct kick. Not positive what the mysterious punch was in there, but it was strong without being overpowering. Loved it. It was a very adult recipe for pulled pork.
Truthfully, I am not a natural at combining spices. I have to work at it. Once we went to a spice your own dish kind of place on date night and I combined so many tastes that my dinner was repugnant. It’s not intuitive for me as a chef or a Mom. I prefer sticking to the recipe books. It’s better for the tastebuds. So, as far as I am concerned ClubHouse is perfect. For all the Moms who aren’t quite ready for Master Chef, ClubHouse Recipe Mixes take the difficulty out of cooking. I can’t wait to see what the rest of these recipe packets have in store. Oh and by the way ClubHouse will be offering a special on line contest near the end of September in preparation for Thanksgiving. Simply log onto clubhouse.ca in the last week of September and you can win a prize valued at $1,000!! That’s a lot of turkey!

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE CLUBHOUSE PULLED PORK MIX IS GLUTEN FREE?
I don’t know but I will try to check for you.
I just emailed you the answer that McCormicks sent me. Okay? Thanks for reading. Essentially it says this one does not have any gluten in it at all BUT it is not made in a gluten free facility so ….Also they noted that all the bottled products are made in a completely GF free space and are GF. Thanks for reading and thanks for asking the question.
