Creators of deliciousness: Freefoodbaby and Guest Chef
We have been a very busy group of people lately and I (FFB) managed to wrangle our dinner group together on a Monday night. For a group that calls ourselves the Monday Night Dinner Crowd this is a very rare occurrence.
I managed to be at my grocery store the day they mark down all the older meats in the case and snagged an $18 pork roast for $9 and this became the basis for my menu. This was my first attempt at purposefully making pulled meat (see Bring the bowl..). Using the crock pot and the tenderizing power of ginger ale it turned out really well. The recipe was pretty simple, put thawed pork in the crock pot add about 1 can of ginger ale and set on high for 5 hours. Drain the meat pull it apart and add BBQ sauce, leave in crock pot on high for another hour.
The biscuits full of gluten were a departure from my usual drop biscuits, easy and delicious. I was able to make them large enough for pulled pork sandwiches.
Guest Chef prepared the coleslaw based mostly on the linked recipe above, but with a few of his adjustments that I didn’t see.
