This post isn’t fair. It’s not, and I apologize. I had a whole lot of delicious holiday food, but none of it is featured here.
I had ham, nice steaks, homemade meatballs, taco salad, potato soup, and lots of other things. That doesn’t even include desserts (even though I’m not usually a huge dessert person, there were definitely some tasty treats!). Perhaps a Holiday Edition of “Best Thing I’ve Eaten This Week” in future years…
Instead, I’ve decided to bypass all of those holiday eats and go with a recent meal that we made for the first time. An easy meal, but one that was quite delicious: pulled pork. It was the first time we’ve done pulled pork, but one that we’ve been looking forward to ever since we got our crockpot about a month ago.
We found a great deal on a pork shoulder at the store and decided to make our move. Here’s how it went:
Now, I know I may be a bit biased, but this was legitimately some of the best pulled pork that I’ve ever had. The meat was so tender and juicy (I guess that’s what about 18 hours in the crock pot does), it was well seasoned, and the barbecue was great. Our first time with pulled pork was a great success!
Here is a price estimation of the meal:
$6.25 – pork shoulder (6.25lbs); we got super lucky to find it on sale this cheap!
$.25 – buns (package of 8); we got these on sale too
$1.00 – bottle of BBQ sauce
~$.50 – onion
~$.25 – tomato
$8.25 – Total Price for 5-6lbs of shredded pork. Pretty cost-effective!
As Always: Eat. Be Happy.
