Celebrate The Kentucky Derby with a party. If your event is planned for the evening – record the race and show it when your guests arrive. My menu includes Mint Juleps, Grilled Prawns, Sweet Potato Fries and Derby Day Pulled Pork Sliders. Tell everyone to wear a festive hat. You can even play your own horse race game with dice and stick ponies.
I found this slow cooker idea online. Cut 2 small pork tenderloins in half and sprinkle with sea salt. Place in a slow cooker along with the contents of 1 can of root beer. Cover and cook on low for at least 7 hours. Remove meat to a cutting board and pull apart with 2 forks. Transfer to a large bowl and mix with 2 cups of your favorite barbeque sauce…Or, for my special Derby Day Sauce: Combine 1/4 cup Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey with 2 cups of your favorite barbeque sauce in a saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes over low-med heat, then mix with the pulled pork. Serve with caramelized onions.
Cook, Eat, Laugh…Claudia
