Today I made slow cooker pork quinoa congee. It’s getting closer to ANZAC day, which means for Canberra residents it’s time to turn on our heaters. With the horrible cold Canberra weather coming it’s time for more comfort food. Over the last few weeks I’ve made tinned corned beef and chicken giblets congee in my pressure cooker.
This slow cooker pork quinoa congee was made with pork spare ribs and made succulent with the fat from some speck.
