A few Thursdays ago, I gave Matt the option of picking one of the five features and I would make it for him. He eliminated the pasta because he isn't the biggest fan of chopped tomatoes. He really wanted a dessert and an entree but I made him choose for the time being as I already had an idea for dessert. (mock Reese's PB Cups).
pork burritos and they seemed simple enough to make on a Sunday and reheat at his place on Monday night.
My mom helped me pick out a nice piece of pork for the meal. (I cut the recipe in half and bought a 2 pound pork rib roast.)
I browned each side of the pork roast after liberally salt and peppering it. My mom said I only needed to brown the big sides, but I wanted a nice light char all the way around.
Then because I used a smaller roast, I cut the crock-time to 3.5 hrs. I checked it at 3 and it was at temperature but wasn't pulling apart yet. I gave it another half hour and it was perfect!
I pulled the roast out and it almost fell apart while I was using two forks to shred it - easiest shredding ever!
I put all the shredded pork back into the crock and added the sour cream/flour mixture to the meat and stirred. 30 minutes later, the house smelt spectacular and I couldn't stop stealing bites.
The burritos were spectacular. I'm sorry I forgot to take the final image, but we were enjoying it too much to stop to take a picture. And the PB bars were a really good replica cup and I'll post about those soon!
