The Great Outdoors

We are so excited to start a new league year and celebrate the 10 year anniversary of The Life of the Party!

Florida sunshine makes it hard to resist having friends over for a poolside cookout. I love hosting parties, but hate missing out on all of the fun while preparing food! I learned quickly that having everything finished PRIOR to guests arriving is ideal and much less stressful. The Life of the Party cookbook includes one of my favorite pre-made options! The Pulled Party Pork recipe on page 93 is one that I highly recommend you try at your next get together!

Pulled Party Pork

The Life of the Party

Yield: 8-10 servings

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

1 cup water

1 (18-ounce) bottle prepared barbecue 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.
