Pork Power


Miss Piggy better steer clear of our house or  she may end up seasoned, grilled, and served up to this pork paradise family.  Slow sizzled bacon, mouth-watering pulled pork, and char grilled pork steak would be our breakfast, lunch, and dinner in pork heaven.

The Super Bowl requires a super food.   All the latest articles claiming  blueberries, quinoa, and nuts as the “super foods” have it all wrong.  Pork, the other white meat, is where it’s at!  After a hearty, smoked filled pulled pork sandwich I feel super!  Able to leap buildings in a single bound, faster than a speeding bullet, super.  Tonight’s Super Bowl menu requires a porky delight.

No smoker, grill, and little time?  Try my Crock Pot Pulled Pork recipe.

3 lb pork roast, butt, or tenderloin

rub (garlic powder, sea salt, pepper)

Put into crock pot and add 1/2 cup root beer, coke, or Dr. Pepper to the bottom of the pot.

Turn on high 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours.

Pour the juices into a sauce pan and add 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (We use Sweet Baby Rays).  Reduce by half.  While this is reducing, use two forks to shred the meat. Marry the ingredients, add to a fresh onion roll and enjoy!  Sometimes I top mine with a vinegar based coleslaw, beer carmalized onions, or thin slices of sweet peppers.

Now that I wiped the drool from my tablet, I can begin concentrating on the loaded potato skins complete with crispy bacon.  Happy Super Porky Bowl!
