Today we had a field trip to a dairy farm, so the last thing I wanted to do was to be worried about what was for dinner. I asked the man to get my crock pot down and a pork roast out of the freezer before he left for work.
I wanted to make pulled pork for dinner. It just sounds so good. My blogging buddy Kathy, posted a recipe awhile back and then I got a new crockpot cookbook with a recipe in it. I never follow recipes, but I use them for background. I came up with my own formulation and this is how it turned out….
I can only say it was delicious!! And that’s putting it mildly. I decided that since I’m going t be using my crockpot a little bit more often, that I’d share my recipes with you. Below, you’ll find the recipes for this entire meal!! I hope you enjoy and let me know if you try any of it out!!
Pulled Pork in the Crockpot
pork roast, approx, 3 lbs. 3/4 bottle of honey or smoked bbq sauce squirt of mustard
2 Tablespoons brown sugar 10-12 splashes of worsteshire sauce pinch of red pepper seeds
salt and pepper to taste 1/2 large onion, diced
Put pork roast in the crockpot. Add all ingredients on and around the pork roast. Set on “low” to cook 6-8 hours or “high” to cook 4 hours. With an hour remaining prior to serving, pull pork roast apart and mix with all juices in the crockpot. Let cook for remaining hour on “low”. Serve on large buns, with or without sesame seeds.
Quick Baked Beans
1 large can pork & beans 1/4 large onion, diced 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 bottle honey or smoked bbq sauce salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a large pan over low heat. Simmer with lid on for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let finish cooking, approximately 10 minutes with lid off over medium heat. Serve.
1 packed pre-shredded cabbage or slaw mix squirt of mustard
salt and pepper to taste 1 cup of mayo or salad dressing
Mix all ingredients together. Mixture should be creamy, but not “wet”. Serve immediately, although tastes best if you let sit in the refrigerator over night.
