A few days ago Dorthy (our next door neighbor) called me over and asked me if I could do her a favor. She needed a 40 some pound pork shoulder carried to her car. She needed to take it to be sliced and she couldn't carry it.

I told her that it would be no problem and a few minutes later went over and did it.

Later that day she called me over again and handed me a few slices from it for us to use.

Now I have never cooked pork shoulder before so I really had no clue what I was going to do with this salt cured hunk of meat, but I took it anyway.

I took a short stab at googling pork shoulder recipes but nothing I saw looked interesting.

Yesterday I picked up some sliced potato cans and sliced carrot cans at the grocery figuring I couldn't go too wrong with crock potting it.

This morning the boys got me up early so I figured I might as well do it...so I put two slices of it in...a pound bag of pinto beans, I think three cans of potatoes...2 cans of carrots and enough water to cover it...and set it on low.

Smells great...I taste tested a bit of the sauce around noon and it didn't seem too salty to me (but I love salt). I added some minced onion and some garlic powder and some pepper and a bit of a Mrs Dash ripoff.

I taste tested it again a bit ago and it tastes pretty good...I turned it to warm to wait till [livejournal.com profile] starsongky gets home.

The boys were even interested (I don't expect them to eat much...they usually don't like things out of their experience.)
