This throw-everything-in-the-slow-cooker dish makes a great summer picnic or gametime meal. Savory Spice’s Caribbean-inspired Bajan Seasoning pairs perfectly with their small batch Black Dip Barbecue Sauce spiked with ground Jamaican allspice berries. The quick pickled carrots add a sweetness to the tangy heat of the pulled chicken and pork combo.


For “chork”:

For quick pickled carrots:

  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and shaved into strips with a vegetable peeler
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. Pickling Spice 


    For “chork”: Place all veggies in the bowl of a slow cooker. Cut pork shoulder into large chunks (about 2- to 3-inch pieces), trimming off any large pieces of fat. Place pork chunks and chicken thighs on top of veggies and season with Salt & Pepper Tableside. In a small bowl, mix Black Dip with remaining ingredients. Pour sauce over meat and veggies. Turn slow cooker to high and cook for 5 hours or until both pork and chicken are easily shredded with a fork. Transfer meat pieces to a bowl and use two forks to shred. Use a sieve to strain remaining sauce from slow cooker over shredded meat.

    For pickled carrots: While “chork” cooks, prepare quick pickled carrots. Place shaved carrots into a glass bowl or jar. Bring vinegar, water, sugar and Pickling Spice to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Pour hot brine over carrots and let cool to room temperature; make sure carrots are submerged in the brine liquid. Once cool, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Best served after they’ve had several hours to sit in the brine.
