Adventures with Crockpot Pork

While my husband was out golfing during the day, I spent Saturday taking care of the home-front. Sleeping in, I cleaned the apartment and prepared the pork butt to cook slowly all day in the crockpot while I hit the gym and caught up on my favorite TV shows. By the time my husband arrived home from 18 holes of golf and some time at the driving range, I had a full dinner ready for him.
Homemade guacamole
Fresh with cilantro, ripe avocados, tomato, jalapeno, onion and lime.
Salsa Fresca
Tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeno and lime.
Slow-Cooked Black Beans with jalapeno, onion and cilantro.
Pork butt after 6 hours of cooking in beer and spices.
Pulled pork for tacos with corn tortillas.
With tons of leftover pulled pork, I put most in the freezer to use another day. The rest was used in BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw and black bean soup with pulled pork.
With a bottled BBQ sauce on toasted potato buns, the pulled pork sandwich is made more interesting with the fresh coleslaw with vinaigrette dressing.
I combined the leftover black beans with sauteed mushrooms, red bell pepper and pulled pork to make a hearty soup.
