Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Thanks for joining me again…

Tonight, well, let’s just say dinner was OK, but William made himself a sandwich…

So, here’s what I cooked:

BBQ Pork 

2-3 pound pork roast

2 quarts water

1/2 cup dried onion flakes

1 Tbsp minced garlic

2 Tbsp kosher salt

1/4 cup butter

1 Tbsp paprika

1 Tbsp chili powder

1 1/2 Tsp crushed red pepper

1 cup cider vinegar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce

1 cup tomato paste

1/4 cup molasses

Place everything in a crock pot, cook on LOW 8 hours.  Remove roast from pot, slice and shred.  Strain juice from pot into stock pot, add in:

1 Tbsp chili powder

1 1/2 Tsp crushed red pepper

1 cup cider vinegar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce

1 cup tomato paste

1/4 cup molasses

Bring to a boil and cook 15-20 minutes or until thickened.  Mix several cups of this BBQ sauce with the shredded pork and serve on buns.  Keep remaining sauce for use as BBQ sauce for regular use, if you like it!

Cole Slaw

1/2 head shredded cabbage (I used my cool little chopper I got for Christmas, it’s AWESOME!)

5-6 carrots, peeled and shredded

1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup vinegar (I used red wine vinegar this time)

1/4 cup sugar

Mix mayo, vinegar and sugar in a small bowl, mix into cabbage and carrots, mix WELL.  Serve!

The BBQ didn’t taste like I expected BBQ to taste, but it wasn’t bad.  I guess I should maybe stick with bottled sauce, or maybe start experimenting with BBQ recipes…  hmmmm….

Sorry, no photos tonight, just wasn’t feeling it!

Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
