Pulled Pork Sandwiches (serves 8)
1 boneless pork shoulder (2 lb.)
1 onion, sliced, separated into rings
1-2 cups Barbecue Sauce, optional
8 rolls, split (I like deli kaiser rolls or mini french loaves)
8 slices cheese of your choice
Place meat in slow cooker; top with onion slices and barbecue sauce. Cover with lid. Cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours (or on HIGH 4 to 5 hours).REMOVE meat from slow cooker; cut off and discard excess fat. Chop meat into small pieces or pull apart into shreds. Return to slow cooker; stir to coat with sauce.FILL rolls with meat mixture and cheese just before serving.
Corn on the Cob with Garlic Butter
4-6 TB unsalted butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, chopped
salt & pepper
4 ears corn, cleaned
1 fresh lime, quartered
Make the garlic butter:
Combine the butter and garlic in a food processor or with a mixer until smooth. (To mix by hand, let the butter get very soft, then beat in the garlic, finely minced, with a large wooden spoon.) Season to taste with salt and pepper. (The garlic butter can be made in advance, covered, and kept refrigerated up to 2 days, or frozen for a week. Bring to cool room temperature before serving.)
Make the corn:
If you are buying fresh corn, be sure they are cleaned and shucked well. Wash the corn and choose a pot large enough to hold the amount of corn you want to cook, with room for water to cover the corn. Cover pot and bring cold unsalted water just to a boil on high heat….. never add salt because it will toughen the corn. Add corn ears and bring the water back to a boil on high heat (covered or not). Since corn tends to float on top of the water, I cover the pot. This helps the water come back to a boil faster and helps the corn cook. Once water comes back to a boil, immediately remove the corn ears from the water. The corn is now cooked perfectly and NOT overcooked.Boiling time is a matter of taste; some people like to just boil them a minute or two to warm their corn on the cob, leaving the kernels crisp and fresh. Others like to let them boil 3 to 10 minutes for softer kernels.Spread or brush with garlic butter.
Squeeze the limes on top and serve immediately.
I’m receiving the gift of limitations this week! I’m letting someone else do the work for me & I’m using canned baked beans. So what?? They were on sale.
