From Mama J’s Kitchen to Yours

As I blog right now, I am making my lunch and cleaning up from the recipe I’m going to share with you. It is to die for. The As are napping, I’m in a wedding on Saturday, and A1’s second birthday party is on Sunday. It’s all out bang-out time.

Four years ago, right after Daddy J and I were married, we got out first iPhones (3G, of course). We perused the free apps in the App Store, and I found this gem: the McCormick app. (*sings* Flavor it up with McCormick!) I added a recipe for crock pot ribs to my favorites list. There is a specific pack of spices you can buy, and, might I add, the other ingredients are cheap.

The packet is McCormick BBQ Pulled Pork seasoning. I am using it for the intended dish this time, shredded pork shoulder/Boston butt roast. It is amazing. Here is the recipe.

BBQ Crock Pot Pulled Pork

3 1/2 lb. pork shoulder roast (that is the maximum one packet will allow. If you have more than that or your roast won’t fit in a 3 qt. crock, then slice it in half after thawing).

In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of ketchup, 1/3 cup cider vinegar, 1/4 brown sugar, and one packet of seasoning. Insert your roast into the crock pot, and pour the contents over it. Cook on low for eight hours. Shred immediately with two forks, making tearing motions until the meat comes apart in thin strands. Enjoy!
