3 Dinner Roast Pork Shoulder. Delicious and cheap!

Perfect Roast Pork Shoulder

I think many folks are intimidated by a big hunk of meat like a boneless pork shoulder, but in reality, it’s one of the easiest things in the world to cook. It also happens to be inexpensive, and delicious.

My favorite combination!

Here’s a three-dinner plan (for four), to make the most of that big hunk of perfection!

First and foremost, is roasting up a great pork shoulder…

Now, once you’ve let that bad boy chill in the fridge overnight, you can divvy it up for dinners you plan to make immediately, or vacuum-seal and freeze portions for quick dinners down the road.

On to the recipes…

Finally, here a new (to the blog, but an old favorite in my family) recipe, for a delicious, soul-warming stew that was built on making the most of what you had, in tough times.

Brunswick Stew is an iconic dish here in the south. Folks in the Georgia branch of my family tree know good Brunswick Stew when they see it and you best not mess it up! In the old days, it was usually an old, stringy chicken and a couple of wild rabbits, or fried squirrels (both of which are delicious, btw!)

This is a more “modern” version, that my father learned to make, as a young cook in Georgia. The slow-cooker touch is my own.

It’s…awesome!

Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew

3 cups poached chicken, large cubed
3 cups large-cubed pork from roast recipe
2 cups pork stock
1 medium onion, diced
5 Yukon Gold potatoes, quartered
1 lb. frozen Butter beans
i lb frozen sweet corn
1 (24-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 cup homemade BBQ Sauce
1 lemon, juiced

Add chicken and pork, to slow cooker. Top with stock, onion, potatoes, beans, corn, diced tomatoes, bbq sauce, and lemon juice.

Cook on low 8 hours. Stir well, and let rest at least 30 minutes with the heat off.
