When it comes to cooking at home, it's so easy for us to get into a rut and cook the same thing again and again. That boredom dulls our desire to cook, even though we know it will save us both time and money.
So, last week I put out a request for your easy to make mid-week recipes to give us new meal ideas and keep us inspired to get in the kitchen.
Dorothy Kerr of Albuquerque, NM sent us a link to one of her recipe staples, BBQ Pork. It's a slow cooker recipe that has just three ingredients:
BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
3 pounds boneless pork ribs
1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
Pour can of beef broth into slow cooker, and add boneless pork ribs. Cook on High heat for 4 hours, or until meat shreds easily. Remove meat, and shred with two forks. It will seem that it's not working right away, but it will.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Transfer the shredded pork to a Dutch oven or iron skillet, and stir in barbeque sauce.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until heated through.
I'm particularly excited to post this recipe because this is also a staple in our household. Boneless pork ribs reguarly go on sale so I can make many meals out of it for around $6 - $8 worth of ingredients.
Often, we will eat the pork with homemade cornbread the first night. We will then turn the leftovers into sandwiches one day and then BBQ Pork Tacos the next day just by adding corn tortillas.
