I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Pulled Pork Fajitas

This is good served as fajitas or served on rice.  You could also roll them up like enchiladas and keep them warm in a casserole, with sauce poured over top.

Serves 4-6 people
(or 2 with leftovers for the week)

2-3 lbs boneless pork shoulder butt, trimmed of fat
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cola beverage
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsps rice or white wine vinegar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
1 tsp red pepper flakes

8 large flour tortillas

Place pork and onions in a deep casserole (narrow enough that most of the meat is covered with sauce).  Pour sauce over top.

Bake at 300F for 3-3 1/2 hours or until pork is tender.
If you want to use a slow cooker cook on low for 6 hours.

Shred using two forks and combine with sauce and return to oven to keep warm until ready to serve.

I tried serving some pulled pork on top of Spiralized Potato Latkes. Not traditional I know, but soooo gooood!
Here's the link to the latkes

Note: Reserve any leftover sauce/juices from the pulled pork and freeze.  You can add it to this old fashioned baked bean recipe. It's the "secret" ingredient!
