The Boys of Fall

Tailgating season is here and what better tailgate fare than something that is easy to prepare so you can relax and enjoy the tailgate and game!  I recommend The Bacon Broccoli Salad found in Tampa Treasures and the Pulled Party Pork found in The Life of the Party.

Pulled Party Pork

Life of the Party, page 93

1 (3-lb) pork tenderloin or Boston butt roast

1 cup water

1 (18 oz) bottle prepared BBQ sauce

¼ cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Combine the pork and water in a slow cooker.  Cook on high for 7 hours.  Drain, reserving 1 cup liquid.  Shred the roast in the slow cooker with a fork.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Add the reserved cooking liquid if necessary.   Cook on low for 1 hour.  Serve on rolls for sandwiches if desired.
