Having good neighbors is a gift in and of itself, but I’m especially blessed in that one of my neighbors is not only a phenomenal cook, she’s generous. Last week she sent me some pulled pork she’d made in her crock pot. It was so good I’m thinking of buying a crock pot for myself, just so I can make this one dish. Like all really good things, it’s incredibly easy. She gave me permission to share it, so here it is:
Put a boneless pork roast that’s trimmed of fat in a crock pot. Add a can of undrained back beans and a large jar of salsa, mild or medium, depending on how spicy you like things. That’s it. No spices, no more liquid. Cover and cook on low all day. Use two forks to pull the meat into pieces, stir the whole thing and serve it over yellow Mexican rice. How much easier can it get? And it was, I promise, delicious.
