Really, I’m making no promises, but I’m trying! I was looking through recipes on Sunday evening and this one for BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches in the crockpot caught my eye. I picked up a bottle of A&W at the grocery store on Monday and pulled out a hunk of pork last night; this morning I got it into my crockpot before I left for the day. Dinner!
I have to admit, though, that I didn’t read the end of the recipe carefully. The pork cooks for 7 hours in the crockpot, yes, but then you shred it and cook it for another hour, and THEN you drain the root beer, add the BBQ sauce, and cook it for ANOTHER 30 minutes to an hour. The steps were quick and easy, but I should have put it in an hour or so earlier. On the other hand, it was still easy and tasty, and the kiddos all ate it well. I could taste more pepper than I would have preferred, thanks to the Montreal Steak Seasoning, but I’m well aware that I’m freakishly sensitive to black pepper. (I doubt most people would even notice.)
Bottom line? It was easy and the (very tender) meat made lovely sandwiches, so I’ll likely make this one again. Give it a try!
