Slow Cooker Barbeque
Turned out really lovely. I used chuck roast and seasoned it with steak seasoning, then browned it first. I always brown meat, no matter what the recipe says. It caramelises and does something yummy with the sugars in the meat, or whatever! Anyway, I did that, then sautéed some sliced onions and garlic. I used a local (Qatari) brand of barbecue sauce, but about 1/3 of a bottle, which was more than enough. I cooked it for about 6 hours on medium heat. The entire family loved it!! There were no left-overs. Even the three-year old was hunting around for seconds. I served this with mayonnaise scones (what you americans call biscuits) and tinned sweetcorn. It all went down fantastically and is definitely going to be on my repeat list. I also used another poster's tip (thank you) about putting dishcloth under the lid of the slow cooker to soak up excess moisture as I find slow cooking always springs too much water. A real winner!!!!

Apple Spice Rice
Very good! All the family liked it. I served it with the pecan and honey pork chops (see review). It went together perfectly. I had some packet mix byriani spices and I added a small amount at the first stage, just to jazz it up a bit. This is a definite winner and I will do it again.

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops
I was a bit doubtful, but my all of the kids, from my 3 year old to the 45 year old liked this one! I made some modifications. First, I always soften my meat by adding a bit of baking powder and oil, which I did in the morning, along with some salt and pepper. I had to keep changing the butter during frying as it went very brown, so I wiped the pan out twice during the process, using kitchen towels. I made the sauce separately using fresh butter and a mixture of honey and maple syrup. It was incredibly sweet at this point, (even for me and I have a very sweet tooth), so I added some water, light soy and a dash of lemon juice and some more butter. I let it all thicken up a bit then poured it over the pork. Also, here in Qatar we can't get Pecans, so I used walnuts. Everyone has asked to for it again. I will try it with chicken as pork is hard to come by here, being a Muslim country. In fact I am so pleased with this recipe I am going to post on our Doha Mums website that I made it, so others can try. A definite winner. I served it along with the Apple Spiced Rice, from this site.
