What's For Dinner Wednesday

Recently, I found a recipe for Root Beer Pulled Pork that sounded too good to be true. Put a Boston butt in the crock pot, add a quart of root beer and voila, in 5 hours, you have tender meat, ready for pulling.

I didn't believe it could be that simple, so the first time I made it, I added mustard and garlic to the country ribs that I had on hand. It turned out very tender and tasty. It still needed something, but I'm no sure what.

We know when a meal is a hit when the kids start nagging us to make it again. They started about a week ago-can we have the Root Beer Pulled Pork? It's gratifying to make something and know that you weren't the only one who liked it.

This time, I put the simplicity to the test with the Boston Butt that was waiting in the freezer. I decided to follow the recipe this time and only used the root beer. I discovered that it needs more than this-and I use name brand stuff. I ended up adding mustard, garlic and salt at the very end. I think it needs a bit of vinegar, so I'll try that next time.

This has nothing to do with WFDW. However, I am including a comment from another post...
Oops. I am hanging my head in shame. I forgot to include another blog.

I'm blaming my recent memory loss to motherhood (I have 3 and they keep me running).

Am I forgiven??????

Joyce, I hope you know I was just picking on you! :)

SB, It was yummy-but if you keep kosher, I'll have to do this with beef for you!
