Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

When it comes to BBQ in Texas, beef is king. You'll find some of the best briskets in the world seasoned with salt, paprika, pepper and more. While pulled pork isn't a Texas staple, a pork butt loves Texas style BBQ seasoning. Here's our recipe for BBQ pulled pork with Texas style seasoning. We use our Texas Rump Rub for seasoning, but you can make your own Texas style rub at home by combining 4 parts salt, 2 parts paprika, and 1 parts each black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and brown sugar. What do you think of our recipe? Do you have a great Texas BBQ recipe to share? We'd love to hear it in the comments below!

Beef Empanadas

Empanadas are baked pastries that are stuffed with a filling and are popular in many parts of Spain, Portugal, South and Central America. We love how easy empanadas are to eat by hand, plus the flavor of flaky bread crust and savory filling is tough to beat! This empanada uses a filling of seasoned ground beef, onions, garlic and cheese and then is served with a fresh chimichurri sauce for dipping. It's really delicious and by using Pillsbury (or similar) Biscuits, it's easy to make the empanadas without being a master baker! Do you have an empanada filling that's absolutely killer? Let us know in the comments below, we always like finding new fillings to try in our empanadas!
