Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Yesterday, National Can-It-Forward Day, was a great success! I gave away over 1,000 of my Nano-Canning: Specialty Jams, Jellies, and Marmalade eBooks AND as an added bonus, I got a 5-Star review of said book from a top 500 reviewer on Amazon who is also a member of the Voice Vines ! The giveaway plus the positive review drove that little eBook from # 246 to #39. I sure would appreciate it if any of you who got the eBook would put a review on, it sure would help me out. If you can get your eBook to #12 (the first nano-canning book is currently #16) it gets on the first page which gives it better discoverability. So many bloggers shared my post about the giveaway I want to thank all of you who did, it certainly helped get the eBook out there!

This morning, I was telling Mr. Picky-eater how bloggers and Facebook Buddies shared my post, how that helped me give away so many eBooks and finally I mentioned that Brandie, at www.thecountrycook.net  had posted on her FB page where it made a HUGE difference in the number of people able to see it because she has so many followers. My husband’s response? “Brandie? That Country Cook woman? Yeah, she’s the one who you got that pulled pork recipe from, right? Why don’t you make that for dinner tonight?” Sooooooooooo………I was feeling pretty darn successful and all the hubs got out of it was Sunday night dinner. He keeps me grounded and I love him. Hey, he bought me a new purse this weekend so I’m okay with it.

He is actually the reason that this pulled pork is so good! I usually get a different brand of meat rub at the store but this time, I used one that he got at an Oklahoma Grocer’s Association conference he had a booth at last week. My husband is not a grocer; he works in finance and has something to do with how grocer’s get paid through a certain electronic payment system. While there, he was offered a free sample of Head Country Bar-B-Que sauce and Championship Seasoning rub. I’m not a big sauce person but I DO love me some rub, and this stuff rocked. Mr. Picky-eater likes both. You can find Head Country here: www.Headcountry.com So, here’s the pork recipe………….

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

It only takes the following ingredients:
Pork – roast, butt, tenderloin (tenderloin is what I had)
Meat dry rub – I used Head Country Championship Seasoning
12 oz. can of Coke, Dr. Pepper, Pepsi or whatever cola you have
1 Tablespoon of liquid smoke
Onion and pepper chopped – optional
1 Crock Pot – the crock pot liner you will see is optional but wow, is it convenient.
Wash and pat dry the pork, pat the dry rub all over, place in the crock pot and pour the pop and liquid smoke around the edge of the crock pot and drop in chopped onion and peppers in.

Dial the Crock up to high and let it go for about 5 hours and turn it over once.

Then shred it up with 2 forks like this.

Put the pork back in and mix with any leftover liquid in the crock. Let it heat for about 30 minutes then take it out and cover loosely with foil for a few minutes. Then make your sandwich with whatever fixin’s you prefer. This is how we eat ours!

    I managed to buy the e-book before I realized it was being offered for free, but I’m glad I have it.
    The pork sounds wonderful.

      I know Lillian – I feel so bad about that. but I must say I am so pleased that you got it because I consider you an expert on the subject and am honored that you would buy my eBook! That pork IS wonderful….yum! We are having leftovers tonight. As an aside: I’m filiming 2 more caretaker videos today and I”m very excited! These videos are about how caretakers can help seniors move better and fall less. The other one is about caregivers taking care of themselves and how important that is!

    Hi Kelli, Nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by my website. It’s pretty impressive to publish your own ebook and I’m so glad you’ve gotten so much exposure. I’ve cooked crock pot pulled pork before too but your’s looks delicious!

      Thank you so much! I’m working to learn to cook by the time I’m 50 – about 2 months left to go…..Loved your challenge. Luckily, my nana taught me to can but she just couldn’t teach me to cook with any consistency!

    Hey all – I was going to make and post about New Year’s Day Posole today. However, last night about 8:00 PM CST Top Girl’s Father-in-law – who had gone to a doctor appt. yesterday morning and put in ICU – passed away. This causes great sadness in our family. Although he and his wife were “new” members of our family, they were wonderful members! I will be using the pork tenderloin I was going to make the Posole with and will be making the recipe below to be taken to the family later today. We are spending our day with Rocket as Top Girl, Son-in-law and his 3 sisters help his mother make final arrangement for this former military pilot and great man. Thank you for understand. Kelli
