I would become a vegetarian if it wasn’t for my love of the pig! Ha ha. I love this pork recipe to death! It is unbelievably easy and so tasty.
Here we go. Buy a pork shoulder (2-3 lbs or so) and place it in your crock pot, set on low, and add one bottle (individual sized) of root beer soda. Yes, that’s it! It actually acts as a tenderizer. And cook it all day (6-8 hours). Take it out prior to serving, drain the drippings, and place it on a platter. Take two forks and shred it. Then it’s time for seasoning. We love cumin in my house! I use a lot of it in this recipe. I normally use about 2-3 capfuls (of the seasoning container), along with garlic powder, a touch of cayenne, salt and pepper. You should add what you like and how much you prefer. I then ladle some of the drippings back on the meat and then serve on a bun.
Hubby roasted some purple fingerling potatoes with some beautiful cauliflower too. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Drizzle with some olive oil, Rosemary, salt and pepper. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25-35 minutes or until fork tender. Enjoy!
