Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork

Thanks to everyone’s new best friend, the Instant Pot, this BBQ pulled pork is on the table in two hours, with very little work from you. The BBQ sauce just might be the BBQ sauce you’ve always been searching for. It’s tangy, spicy, slightly sweet, and takes about 5 minutes to make. It’s easy to imagine brushing this sauce over brisket and grilled chicken, not just pulled pork.

The recipe for the BBQ sauce starts with blackstrap molasses for its depth of flavor and thick, syrupy consistency. Only a tablespoon, so the flavor of molasses doesn’t overwhelm the sauce, but you still get a nice dose of magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese. This BBQ sauce is yet another delicious way to work blackstrap molasses into your diet.

Thai Larb

Larb can be a delicious low-carb choice from the menu of a Thai restaurant. It can also be a quick and easy meal to make at home. In this Primal larb recipe, fish sauce brings salty umami flavor and slightly sweet coconut aminos stand in for sugar. A squeeze of lime, a chopped hot chile (or dash of Sriracha sauce), and loads of fresh herbs make this “meat salad” an addictive meal.

Lucikly, larb addiction is nothing to worry about. High in protein from the ground meat and high in antioxidants from the herbs and hot chile, larb has plenty going for it. Spoon the meat into lettuce leaves, or just throw it into a bowl with baby greens. Either way, it’s a quick, easy, hugely flavorful meal.
