Root beer pulled pork in the crock pot.

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!
