Around Town: Oysters and Theatre

Posted on January 22, 2015 by

Lowcountry Oyster Festival2

Haven’t made it to the Lowcountry Oyster Festival? Make this year your year! It’s THE Charleston not-to-miss event in January, and you haven’t missed it (unless you’re reading this post after January 25th, 2015, in which case you have). We won’t recreate the wheel and provide you with all the details when you can simply visit the Festival’s website but we will let you know a couple of things that maybe you didn’t about this event:

  1. It’s more than oysters. What? Yep–although oysters are obviously the pearl of this event (sorry, we’re awful), there are PLENTY of other restaurant vendors to buy from if you’re not into the oyster scene. And plenty of beer and wine. Enuf said.
  2. It’s kid friendly, and they’ll actually learn something! Check here for details on Pluff-a-Pallooza Children’s Area by GoodCleanFun. Yes, you read that right. Check it out!
  3. It may seem expensive, but proceeds from the festival go to some pretty amazing charities including: The Ronald McDonald House, Hospitality Heroes, Hollings Cancer Center, Shriners Hospitals for Children and Charleston County Schools Science Materials Resource Center

So what should you know?

Date, Time, Location: Sunday, January 25, 12-5, Boone Hall Farm

Price: Entry $17.50 in advance, $25 at the door; does not include oysters, drinks or other food; Oysters are $14 per bucket

So show up and have a blast!

Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Some folks are a fan of crock pots, some are not. If you’re in the latter category, we have a recipe that may very well change your mind. Give this Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork a shot. Put the ‘work’ in in the morning, and come home to a delicious smelling house in the evening!

Ingredients:

1 large Vidalia onion, sliced thin
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (4-6 lb) boneless pork butt or shoulder
¾ cup cider vinegar
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 ½ teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoons dry mustard
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions:

1. Rinse pork roast under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

2. Place onions in crock-pot. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, paprika, kosher salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. Rub mixture all over roast and place the roast on top of the onions.

3. In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, Worcestershire, red pepper flakes, sugar, mustard, garlic salt and cayenne pepper; whisk to combine. Drizzle about 1/3 of vinegar mixture over roast. Cover and refrigerate remaining vinegar mixture.

4. Cover crockpot; cook on low for 10-12 hours. Drizzle about 1/3 of reserved vinegar mixture over roast during last ½ hour of cooking.

5. Remove meat and onions; drain. Chop or shred meat and onions. Serve with remaining vinegar mixture or your favorite barbeque sauce.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Sam’s Wholesale Club sells pre-made, pre-cooked meatballs in seven pound packages. They have a wonderful flavor, but can be a “tad” greasy. The grease can be combatted by baking the meatballs on a cookie sheet and blotting them with paper towels. Cover with the Sweet and Sour recipe below, and serve warm.

Ingredients:

3 1/2 pounds premade, precooked meatballs

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup cider vinegar

1/4 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons dry sherry

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/3 cup pineapple juice

DIRECTIONS:

Combine sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, and sherry in a saucepan. Dissolve cornstarch in pineapple juice and add to sugar mixture. Bring mixture to a boil; cook one minute or until thickened, stirring constantly.

NOTE: Double recipe if using Sam’s meatballs!
