Lazy dinner

Tonight's Menu

  • slow-cooker barbecued pork on buns
  • leftover coleslaw
This could not have been easier if we'd ordered takeout. All I did was dump a pork roast (sirloin, I think? or shoulder? you could use any cut you like) into the slow cooker, pour a bottle of Carolina-style barbecue sauce on top, cover and cook on low for about 8 hours. When it's done just shred the meat with two forks and ladle some of the sauce on top. Serve with some sandwich buns and thinly sliced sweet onion, and Bob's your uncle.

The coleslaw was leftover from Wednesday.

The girl child ate a pork sandwich AND some coleslaw. Unbelievable! I don't know who kidnapped my daughter and replaced her with this changeling who actually LIKES TO EAT, but I'm sorry, I'm keeping this one.

This is one of my all-time "lazy" faves too. And, being from Eastern NC, Carolina sauce is the ONLY one that will do! Have you ever tried this with a pork shoulder or tenderloin and your favorite salsa in the slow cooker? Once it's all done and fork-shredded, it makes an awesome filling for carnitas-style soft tacos, burritos, whatever!

Ooh, that sounds good! My mouth is watering at the thought of pork tenderloin with peach salsa stuffed into soft rolls, or shoulder with chipotle salsa on tortillas. Yum! Will have to try that soon!
