We topped off our sandwiches with some Pineapple Slaw and had a Watermelon Margarita and our meal was complete. So, if you can't cook outdoors, adjust your thinking and BBQ indoors. A crockpot, a grill pan, the oven. Nothing should keep you from enjoying a great BBQ - not even the weather. Enjoy.
Pulled Pork (the crock pot method)
Makes 10 servings.
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast, well trimmed
1 package McCormick Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1. Place pork in slow cooker. Mix Seasoning, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar until blended. Pour over pork. Cover.
2. Cook 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH. Remove pork from slow cooker.
3. Shred pork, using 2 forks. Return pork to slow cooker. Mix and heat with sauce before serving. Serve on sandwich rolls, if desired.
Cabbage Pineapple Slaw
3 1/5 ounces pineapple tidbits in juice
1 1/5 cups shredded cabbage
½ cups shredded carrots
¼ cup finely chopped jalapenos
2 celery stalks, chopped
½ cup craisins
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
Drain pineapple, reserving 3 tablespoons of juice. Combine drained pineapple, shredded cabbage, celery, craisins, carrots and jalapenos. Combine reserved pineapple juice, mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add to cabbage mixture and toss lightly. Spoon into serving bowl, cover and chill until serving time.
3 tablespoons coarse salt
1 lime wedge
1-cup watermelon puree*
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup tequila
2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur
1 cup ice
Chill a margarita glass in the freezer for 30 minutes. Place the coarse salt in a shallow dish or saucer. Wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and dip the glass into the salt, coating the top edge. In a cocktail shaker, combine watermelon puree, lime juice, tequila, orange-flavored liqueur, and ice. Shake until frothy and well chilled, at least 1 minute. Strain into the prepared glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
* To make the watermelon puree, remove seeds from fresh watermelon and cut into large chunks. Place in a blender and process until smooth and well pureed.
