Walk through a timeline of iconic frozen dessert moments in America's history.
Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket
A spice rub with paprika, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, cayenne, and garlic, and a smoky-sweet barbecue sauce with chipotle chiles lend mouth-watering layers of flavor to beef brisket, which gets incredibly tender after 10 hours in the slow cooker. Slice or shred the brisket and serve on good, sturdy bread for the ultimate BBQ sandwich, or make a combo plate with meat, slaw, baked beans, potato salad, or other classic BBQ sides.
Slow Cooker Pork Ramen
A simple but delicious version of Japanese ramen, this soup starts with pork cooked to perfect tenderness in the crock pot, with garlic, ginger, leeks, mushrooms, and onions rounding out the flavors. The noodles are cooked separately just before serving, then the shredded pork and fragrant broth, with a little soy and sesame oil added, are ladled over top. A soft boiled egg makes a great garnish, as do shredded scallions or chopped baby spinach. Add some chile oil or Sriracha if you want to spice things up.
