I returned home from Toronto Monday afternoon completely exhausted from my trip – but in a good way. I was able to get out of having to cook that night because my parents invited us over to a 4th of July BBQ dinner. Yay!
Yesterday I was still really tired and since my daughter and I are leaving tomorrow for a road trip to visit her cousins in Georgia, I was busy all day cleaning, doing laundry and running errands. Again, I did not feel like cooking.
Luckily, I had received a package while I was away…Byron’s BBQ sent me a package of their famous Byron’s BBQ pulled pork and Dominex Eggplant Veggie Fries to review! Quick, easy – and most importantly, no real cooking required.
We are a big BBQ loving family, and my personal favorite happens to be pulled pork, so this was right up my alley! As soon as it began cooking, that sweet BBQ aroma began to fill the house…
My husband and daughter weren’t too thrilled with trying Eggplant fries but I happen to love eggplant and trying anything new, so I was pretty excited. My daughter liked them but my husband refused to try them…that’s okay, it just meant there was more for me!
The Byron’s BBQ was delicious – it’s a slow cooked pulled pork recipe that comes fully cooked, but frozen. All I had to do was remove the paper packaging and pop the tray (aluminum) in the oven at 350 degrees for about 75 minutes. I took it out about halfway through and stirred it up so that the juices would be nicely distributed but that was the extent of my “cooking!”
It was so tasty – it was real southern BBQ. It had a hint of spiciness to it that my husband and daughter prefer and a hint of sweetness to it that I love in a good BBQ.
I served the BBQ on little French sandwich rolls, but it was so good that I am sure I could serve it just on it’s own with beans and corn on the cob. I really loved the Dominex Eggplant Fries – I was actually surprised at how much I liked them! A great benefit to the veggie fries is that while they have all the crunch and tastiness of fries, they have 65% less sodium than french fries and have 4 grams of fiber per serving.
Definitely check out Byron’s at your local Sam’s Club or BJ’s and Dominex’s Veggie Fries at your local grocery store, I promise that you won’t be disappointed!
