Taking low carb cooking to the South for a bit

Did a bunch of home cooking over the weekend so I can have goodies for the week.

I’ve been wanting to do a copycat recipe of Popeye’s Durty Rice so I substitute Riced Cauliflower for real rice. Finally got around to doing it the past weekend and it came out great, only thing missing from the ingredient list was Celery Flakes. Might have to check the natural food stores for that one since two other main supermarkets here didn’t have it.

The coleslaw is not flashy but tasty since I won’t be eating any macaroni salad soon.

The Pulled Pork is the star and was made in the oven, it took forever to cook but came out nice and tender inside with carmelized bits on the exposed parts. Looked even better straight out of the oven after being pulled apart but this is a photo of it reheated.

The Carolina Mustard Sauce was something I made to offset the sweeter taste of the meat and it came out pretty good, the apple cider vinegar in it is a little strong, I may cut that back a little next time I experiment. It has the right amount of heat. Probably good on the meat in a sandwich too or spread on during a BBQ.
