With the fabulous news, the rest of the day went by pretty quickly! As 8pm rolled around, I hopped in my car and headed home for some food! Yesterday I had made some Pulled Pork Tacos in my crockpot which were insanely amazing, and we had SO much leftover, that tonight I couldn't wait to enjoy some pulled pork again! Only tonight, I ate it on my whole wheat sandwich thin instead of a tortilla.
This is seriously one of the easiest, cheap recipes that will leave you with leftovers and a smile. :-)
Pulled Pork Tacos
Easy Crockpot Recipe!
1 pork butt or shoulder
1 bottle BBQ Sauce
2-3 cups of water
1 medium onion
a few tortillas, or buns/sandwich thins for sandwiches
Take thawed pork and rub with seasoning. I used garlic salt and a tiny bit of cajun seasoning for a kick! Chop the onions and place those in the crockpot. Once the meat is seasoned, place on top of the onions in the crockpot, and fill the pot with about 1/4 inch water. I always put the crockpot on high for the first hour, and then set to low for the rest of the day. Usually about 7 hours.
Once I got home from work, I drained out the water and kept most the onions in there. I used two forks and started pullin'!The pork is so tender and juicy it will make your mouth water. I filled the crockpot back up with my favorite BBQ Sauce which is Stubb's Spicy BBQ sauce. Absolutely amazing!! I let it sit for about another 30 minutes or so
Once he got home, I jumped right back into the kitchen and heated up some tortillas! I topped my pork taco with a tiny bit leftover pico de gallo, and a small handful of a five cheese blend. These babies were so delish, look at these tacos....
Tonight I took advantage of my leftovers and made a pulled pork sammy!
I zapped the sandwich thin and a slice of meunster cheese in the oven on broil for a few minutes and went to town! Best part about this meal? The price. Check this out:

So cheap and so amazing! Leftovers usually last at least a few more lunches/dinners.You should totally try it. :) Anyway, we're chilling at home tonight watching the ESPY's. Tomorrow, my sales team is having an offsite at the lake! I am so looking forward to a few hours of sunshine, frisbee, sand volley, football, and free lakeside restaurant food! Yay!
