I must say, last week’s Hunk of Meat Monday link ups were quite inspiring. I get in this “I must grill out every single day” mode that I have been ignoring my poor crock pot most weeks. And then I saw these amazing recipes from The Rickett Chronicle, Pinke Post, and Goodeness Gracious.
And then I was reading through Basilmomma’s Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork recipe and decided, I could convert that to a crock pot recipe with no problem. Plus I had half of a Boston butt or also known as a pork shoulder I needed to use.
Just a few ingredients to get this recipe going.
I decided the pork needed four or five pieces of smashed garlic.
Then I shredded up the pork with my salad choppers.
Turned the crock pot down to stay warm till we were ready to eat. The pork was spicy and sweet. We made sandwiches out of the pork and added some cheese and BBQ sauce to the pork.
It was a little bit of heaven with our Indiana sweet corn and tomato pasta salad.
