Easiest Crock Pot Recipe Ever

23

If the 1000 Awesome Things blog doesn’t have “Walking into your house after a long day of work, to the smell of dinner bubbling away in the crock pot” – well, it really should.

Today, the smell of the easiest crock pot recipe known to man greeted me at my front door. It said: “I know you’ve had a long day, but don’t worry. I’m here and I’m all ready for you to eat. Don’t you love me?” I DO! I do love you!

During the course of the day, my thoughtful crock pot cooked up some Shredded BBQ Pork Sandwiches!

All I did was take 1 pork shoulder roast, cut it into big chunks and threw it in the crock pot with 1 packet of dried onion soup/dip seasoning, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/2 cup water. I cooked it on low all day (7am-5pm) and when I got home from work, all I had to do was remove the pork from the liquid in the crock pot, shred it all up and add BBQ sauce!

The thing about crock pot meals is that they’re supposed to be easy. Therefore it makes no sense to me when I see crock pot recipes that have 15 ingredients and involve the stove or oven in addition to the crock pot. Hmmm, I’ll stick with my no muss, no fuss 3 ingredient recipe, thank you very much! :D

I sandwiched the shredded ‘Q in between a toasted, whole-wheat English Muffin. Dy.no.mite.

Fun Fact: there’s one vegetable in the world that I like canned as much as I do fresh – green beans! There’s something about the soft texture that I just love – plus I grew up eating them!

Seriously – this meal deserves an I Freaking Love award. I think I said it about 20 different times, about every part of the meal…the Chewy English Muffin, the Tangy BBQ Pork, the Nostalgic Green Beans. YUM YUM YUM!!

In other news, I hit the gym after work today! I ran for 30 minutes at 6.6 and kicked it up to 7.0 for the last two minutes. That’s fast for my short-ay legs! Then I power walked for 15 minutes while watching the most depressing Oprah show I think I’ve ever seen…did anyone else catch it? Basically…it made me really happy that I have the family and life that I do. Money cannot buy you happiness, sobriety, safety or real love. Remember that people!!
