I recently gave a friend a slower cooker for a bridal gift, and for the card I gave her this new found recipe. With three ingredients, it was a perfect meal for a day of alumni activities.
The only problem... when I ordered my groceries from ShopRite.com, I wanted fresh pork shoulder, but they sent my a 10lb shoulder. WOAH. 10 pounds. This thing still had the skin on it. It just looked like a pig. It was nasty, and made me thing twice about eating it.... hmmm.
After I got the skin and three inches of fat cut off, I cut the pork in thirds, and froze two sections. The third section I tossed in the slow cooker with 12 oz of root beer, generic for 79 cents. Turned it on low, and left.
About 5 hours later, I turned it off and drained the liquid off. I plugged it back in and added the store bought bbq sauce (yes, MK, I didn't make it from scratch- maybe next time...). Let the sauce warm on the meat while I toasted the buns and baked the sweet potato fries in the oven.
