Pulled pork is a dish that I have always wanted to make, but just never got down to it. Not having much time to watch it cook, I decided to use my trusty crock pot. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is the way that it is listed on the internet, and most of them call for a bottle of one's favorite BBQ sauce poured over a shoulder of pork and just left alone. Well, I poked through my pantry and found another packet of McCormick's Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork packet of spices. I buy packets of spices when they are on sale so that I can used them during the week to jazz up my dishes. This packet of spices requires a 1/2 cup of ketcup, a 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar. Mixing the ingredients together, I carefully painted the shoulder of pork with the marinade and left it to marinate (in the fridge) overnight. On Thursday morning, the pork went into the crock pot (low for 8 hours) and I went to work.
On the way home, I picked up some hot rolls from Jon's market and a head of cabbage. Grammy Betty was kind enough to make her coleslaw. I don't have a recipe for this, but as soon as I do, I will post it; however, I saw her add evaporated milk, apple cider vinegar, and a bit of pepper. Dinner was tasty, quick, and comforting - what I look for on a Thursday night.
