Party Food

What’s the first step of having a party? Planning the party food. Easier said than done, right?

Don’t let your fun turn into a frenzy; with pork, your Big Game gathering is sure to be heavy on taste, light on stress – and neither your guests’ tummies or your bank account will grumble from being empty.

So what’s going to headline your party food menu? May we suggest:

Buffalo Pork Ribs

What’s a more ideal party food than ribs + buffalo? This easy three-ingredient ribs recipe is simple on every level. Pork ribs aren’t as difficult to prepare as you might think – these ones call for just one hour in the oven plus a few minutes of broiling, followed by rest time.

Chili Rub Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is the ultimate party food – serve it on a bun, lettuce wraps, nachos, tortillas or eat it plain. This slow cooker pulled pork recipe is the perfect choice for an easy party recipe that will have your guests asking you where you got the idea. Before putting this roast in the slow cooker, brown on all sides in a skillet, creating a nice crust. If you have a pork shoulder on hand, that will work well for this recipe, too.

Plate any of these pork party food recipes as grab-and-go bites and your game-day crowd will cheer. With just a handful of ingredients and minimal prep times, they are easy to make and let you spend time with your guests instead of scurrying about your kitchen and sweating through your team’s apparel.

In the unlikely event that your Big Game watch ends with leftovers, any of these party food recipes lend themselves well to reheating the next day – so act fast! Quietly slip into the kitchen, package your ribs and pulled pork into containers, and hide them in your fridge before anyone else sees. On the other hand, you could graciously send these party food leftovers home with your guests as a thank-you or head start on their post-Big Game recovery.

There, you’re set. Party food is planned – all you have left to do is get to the grocery, send your invites and vacuum. Have fun!
