It’s been a hectic time around here, and the blog has been neglected. I apologize. Things seem to be settling down a bit and we are getting into a nice flow.
This weekend we really wanted to take it easy. Nowhere to go and no company meant we were pretty much free. I was missing my foodie friends, so I decided to see how the Ottawa Foodie Challenge was shaping up. We met the foodiePrints crew down at Isobel’s Cupcakes new location in Hintonburg and were able to enjoy a good coffee and great conversation.
Taking time to do a few things we wanted meant a good supper with little work. Before we left I started my pulled-pork in the slow cooker. I have been asked for the recipe several times because it’s so easy and good.
Here it is:
1 really good pork roast 2-3 pounds (not tenderloin)
1 bottle of Root Beer ( the single serving size, I prefer A & W)
Roast, root beer and some salt and pepper in the crock-pot on high for 5-6 hours. At the end of 5 hours drain the root beer off, shred the roast, pour a good bottle of barbecue sauce over the shredded pork (some folks like a little less, use your own judgement) and cook on high for another 30-45 minutes.
Serve on crusty rolls with your favourite coleslaw.
There it is folks an easy recipe that will let you enjoy your day. My good man makes his oven baked fries to serve with this.
