Mom Monday: Pork! It’s Whats For Dinner!

Mom Monday

I didn’t intend to post this as a Mom Monday but I’m having a hard time making a grocery list today much less an inspiring blog post! So, since cooking is part of my “job” and I happened to make something really good recently here it is for you to enjoy.

I tried a new recipe and it turned out SO good I had to take pictures of it and blog about it! Usually when I try something different it turns out to be a major flop or I like and Bill doesn’t or Bill likes it I don’t. (Will likes everything!) But everybody thoroughly enjoyed this dinner as evidenced by cleaning their plates. So excited to have something new to add to the dinner rotation.

It’s Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches and I found the recipe on Bubblecrumb. The best part about it is that it’s a crockpot recipe – and you can’t really mess those up especially when there’s only 2 ingredients: pork roast and 12 oz. of root beer. (And it doesn’t taste like root beer at all! I promise, because I don’t particularly like root beer.) And the second best part is that it’s a very inexpensive meal, about $15 because I had to buy pork, buns, pickles, BBQ sauce, & potatoes. It made enough for 2 nights so $7.50 a dinner. Awesome!


You just put your pork roast and root beer in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. When it is done, remove the pork roast from the crockpot and pull it apart with forks.

Pile your bun up with pulled pork and your favorite BBQ sauce. The recipe said to mix your pulled pork with BBQ sauce but we prefer to just put it on top of our individual sandwiches. And Will ate his dry with “dip” on the side.

A BBQ dinner isn’t complete without homemade potato chips and the world’s best pickles. (Pickles counted as our vegetable!)

Will ate his dinner with great gusto!

Thomas was upset that he didn’t get any BBQ so he tried to eat the high chair.

Have you tried anything new for dinner lately? Was is a major flop or did you love it? Leave your recipe as a comment or leave a link to your blog or the recipe online. I’m always looking for new things – much to the dismay of Bill :)
