The good thing about prepping for a storm, whether it hits or not, is that I won’t have to cook for for or five days.
Yesterday I made Root Beer Pulled Pork in the pressure cooker.
If our power stays on, I can make pulled pork quesadillas with the electric quesadilla maker. If the power is off, I can make them in the skillet on the stove. If the power stays on, I can bake potatoes, add pulled pork, cheese, chives, yogurt and butter. If the power goes off, I can chop potatoes, cook those in a skillet, add the pulled pork, butter, cheese and yogurt. We can have pulled pork sandwiches. There’s almost no limit as to what I can do with pulled pork; and besides that – it’s one of my favorite meats.
I put all the meat in the half gallon jar. I’ll shred it just before we use it.
I put all the liquid in the quart jar. The grease will harden at the top and I can scrape it off and throw it away. Then I’ll reduce that liquid, add more BBQ sauce and we’ll have Root Beer/BBQ pulled pork!
