Crock Pot: BBQ Pulled Pork

Published January 15, 2016 by lynn k scott

Before heading out the door for work yesterday, I managed to start the crock pot so dinner would be done when I arrived home.

I had thawed some boneless pork roast.  You can use the bone-in kind too, but you just have to remove it from the bone.   That’s a time-consuming task that I’m willing for forego the majority of the time, esp. when we’re talking pennies on the dollar for boneless.

I cut the meat into chunks and placed them in the crock pot.  Then sprinkled with salt, pepper, cumin and paprika.  After giving the meat a quick toss so spread the seasonings around, I added about a cup or so of (homemade) vegetable stock.  I then added roughly a quarter cup of BBQ sauce (gluten-free, of course).  Gave then crock a quick stir, add the lid, set on low for 6 hours and off to work I go.

When I come home, the pork chunks are a bit browner and ready to be shredded.

The easiest way to shred these is put the pork in a bowl with some of the cooking liquid (1/4-1/2 cup or so).  Take your hand mixer and begin shredding.  No need to tear apart with two forks, the blender is king for this task!

Once the pork is shredded, you can add a bit more liquid if you think the meat needs it.  If not, you can add more BBQ sauce or serve it on the side.  Take the shredded meat, pile onto a hamburger bun and enjoy.  When I could still eat hamburger buns, before I added the top of the bun, I’d add some mayo-free coleslaw.  Heaven on a bun!

Coal

Published December 7, 2015 by lynn k scott

I received a text from my daughter’s Ninang (Godmother) yesterday that had me busting up, so I had to share.

She has two boys, ages 5 (Joseph) and 7 (Jordan).  Joseph already had confessed to his Elf on a Shelf that he was running in the house and asked he not tell Santa.  It was really cute, because he told his mom that when she asked about their conversation.  If he only knew.  lol

Joseph had received his naughty list warning from his Elf.  As any little brother would do, he sought advice from his older sibling.  He asked Jordan what would happen if his name gets on the naughty list.

Jordan responded he would get coal.  “What’s that?” Joseph inquired. Jordan tells him, “It’s like the charcoal dad uses in the BBQ”  Without skipping a beat, Joseph adds, “Ohhhh.  Well if I make it on the naughty list and get lots of coal, I’ll just give it to dad so he can BBQ!”

I couldn’t help but laugh.  Joseph has one of the brightest and most positive spins on life.  Not much phases this child.  It was a great way to look a potentially negative consequence.  Who needs a silver lining when you have a coal one?

 

BBQ Tonight

Published March 6, 2015 by lynn k scott

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous today.  We hit 71 degrees this afternoon.  It’s still really nice out, so I thought I’d start the BBQ up and we’d have some bbq chicken and baked potatoes.  I really enjoy grilling and it’s so easy, minimal cleanup and there’s no risk of my over-sensitive smoke detectors being activated.

Seriously, I don’t know who set the settings, but any amount of “heat” will set them off.  Not only do they have an annoying alert, but they also have added, “Warning!  Fire!  Fire!   Oh I despise those settings.

The chicken is almost done.  That’s where I’ve been.  Cooking and making sure the skin is just right before moving it indirect heat to finish cooking.  Grilling outside tells me Spring is on the way.  That’s a half-truth.  If it’s not really windy or too cold, I’ll crank up the bbq just because I can.
