I realize that all my posts in 2012 have, so far, been about food. That’s because my projects have either been failures (had to completely un-crochet something that was nearly 1/2 done), something I can’t talk about because it is a gift, or something too boring to discuss (more of my cloth “paper towels” for someone else.) So food it is!
I found this recipe online for pulled pork made in the crockpot and it was incredibly good and easy. Check it out at http://southernfood.about.com/od/pulledporkrecipes/r/bl10512b.htm
I was looking for the easiest one I could find and this one also made the most, so I could share. I slow cooked a pork shoulder overnight and I woke up a couple of times smelling it throughout the house. It smelled incredibly good when it was only meat, salt, pepper, garlic salt and onion. Then you drain off the juices, take out any noticeable fat and shred the meat. Add it back to the cooker with vinegar and your favorite barbecue sauce and cook for one more hour. Done!
I served it with baked beans and cole slaw, which is very traditional. Here are the photos (wish we had “smell-a-vision.”)
