I wish I had a food processor.
One of the first instructions of this is to put some vegetables in a food processor to finely chop them.
I thought, I’ll use my big knife and my pastry cutter. It’ll go great.
It did not.
Firstly, the onion I got somehow managed to be the most potent thing on the planet. My eyes were not tearing up, they were literally streaming. It was insane.
Then, putting the onion, bell pepper, and celery together was a hot holy mess. The pastry cutter did nothing, especially to the bell pepper. So I dumped it all out and tried to dice it all on a cutting board. Also a mess. So I gave up and dumped it in.
The rest of the recipe is pretty straightforward, and the end result is quite good, mine just had very chunky vegetables in it, which I could have done without.
As for the sauce, the combo of barbecue sauce, salsa, and worcestershire was good, but not mind blowing or revolutionary, I would save the money and time and just use the barbecue sauce by itself next time.
The recipe link suggest serving with mashed potatoes and green beans, and has additional recipes for both. I made my *classic* microwave mashed potatoes and called it a day.
