One Pan BBQ Pulled Pork and Rice Skillet Supper

One pan BBQ pulled pork and rice skillet dinner is full of flavor and texture.  It will have everyone coming back for a little more and leave you with very few dishes too! 



     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!

        The only thing I love more than a good pulled pork recipe is a quick and easy dinner recipe.  You know, the kind that you can start when you get home from work and still have dinner on the table before your family chases you down like a pack of hungry wolves! This is definitely one of those.



       Other than a little chopping and stirring, there is very little effort required. When you put that skillet full of goodness down on the table and they smell the BBQ and see the golden melty cheese, everyone's appetites will be ready to scarf it down!



       What are your favorite weeknight meals? Do you have fun ways to use pulled pork leftovers?

BBQ Pulled Pork and Rice Skillet Supper

One pan BBQ pulled pork and rice skillet dinner is full of flavor and texture. It will have everyone coming back for a little more and leave you with very few dishes too!
prep time: 10 MINScook time: 30 MINStotal time: 40 mins

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 14.5 oz can diced 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 or cilantro for garnish

instructions

  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 the tomatoes and water, 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.

  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!

  16. Hi Carlee, great recipe! Do you think I could freeze this beforehand? Want to take it camping but the weekend is a few days away.

    1. I can't see why not and then just heat it back up when it's time to eat? I'd keep the rice a little al dente so it doesn't blow out when you warm it back up. But I think this would be a great camp meal!

    1. I'd love to come cook for you! I tend to gravitate towards certain kinds of foods when I'm at the store too. Then by the end of the week I wonder why I didn't buy more variety! Luckily between the freezers and pantry I can usually come up with something different!

  36. Found this and want to try it. Question...the rice is uncooked?

    1. Yes, you start with uncooked rice and it absorbs the flavor and cooks with everything else!
