One Pan BBQ Pulled Pork and Rice Skillet Supper

     Have you figured out by now we are pork people?  I know I have gone over my love of pulled pork many times.  I love how easy and versatile it is.  What I love even more is playing with the leftovers.  I have turned them in enchiladas, Brunswick stew, even baked chimichangas.  All of which are delicious.  But sometimes you just don't want the hassle of a bunch of dishes, yet you are just not in the mood for another pulled pork sandwich.  What's a person to do?



    I have the solution.  It just takes one skillet, a few pantry ingredients and some leftover pulled pork.  It combines some Tex-Mex Flavors with BBQ for another Mexi-Q dish that is sure to be a hit!  The best part is that it comes together quickly and the cleanup is just as quick!



BBQ Pulled Pork and Rice Skillet Supper

Ingredients:

1 T oil
3/4 cup pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup rice
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes, undrained
1 can black beans, drained
1 cup corn kernels (I used frozen)
1 1/2 cups pulled pork
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
green onions for garnish


  1. Heat oil in large skillet.  Add onions, peppers and garlic and cook until they start to soften.  Season with salt and pepper
  2. Add the rice to the skillet, stirring until lightly toasted.
  3. Stir in rice and tomatoes, bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes.  Add a little more water if necessary to keep it from drying out.
  4. Once rice is al dente, stir in black beans, corn, pulled pork and BBQ sauce.  
  5. Top with cheese and cook until cheese begins to melt.
  6. If you'd like (and you have an oven safe skillet), broil until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.
  7. Garnish with green onions.

    1. We love these kinds of dinners and Matt's favorite dinners are usually my leftover reworks. He thinks I should refocus my blog to doing ways to rework leftovers :-)

  9. This looks right up my alley. One dish, easy cleanup, quick preparation. Boom. Done. I am also a huge fan of rice and beans, it's filling and tasty, but with the addition of the barbecue sauce and the pork, this could become a family favorite!
