I can’t believe it has been almost 6 months since I wrote anything for this here blog. I think it comes from being unemployed. I do not know how stay-at-home moms get ANYTHING done! So I was reading Suburban Bliss (a blog I’ve been reading for a long time and think you should read too) and decided to comment with my pulled pork recipe. Then I decided my comment would make a good blog post, since I haven’t posted squat in 6 months. (I’m really sorry about that too – I like having a blog.)
I do a more North Carolina-ish version than the one Melissa posted. I like the vinegary meat with the bbq sauce. Here it is …
Slice an onion (I like sweet white ones) very thinly and put it in the bottom of the crock pot.
Put a pork butt/shoulder roast in the crockpot.
In a measuring cup mix about a half a cup of apple cider vinegar, some splashes of Worstershire (sp?) sauce, a couple of spoonfuls of brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chili flakes if you’re brave (I am not). Wisk for a second and pour over meat.
Cook 10 hours on low. 8 hours is not enough! Shred and put back into sauce to keep meat moist.
Get bagged coleslaw mix and add coleslaw dressing. Also get good buns. On the bottom half of the bun put bbq sauce, then put meat on top. On the top half of the bun put cole slaw. Carefully put the two halves together. Serve with a lot of napkins. This is so good my picky pants kids eat it!
