Barbecue Flapjacks

I am not cooking at all since my injury and repair of a ruptured Achilles tendon.  This does not mean we are going hungry because many kind friends are bringing us meals. I will take this “off” time to post some old recipes, family favorites in years past. No photos to go with them, but why don’t you try some of these and send me a photo of your results?

My mother, Opal Teal, sent me a recipe card on which she had written this recipe. I treasure the card with her handwriting. We had this often when our sons were “growing boys.”

Barbecue Flapjacks

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. barbecue sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
dash Tabasco sauce
1 can refrigerated baking powder biscuits (12 biscuits).
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Root Beer Pulled Pork, Slow Cooked

IMG_0466If you haven’t discovered using your slow cooker for pulled pork, you will be surprised how easy it is to produce this tasty barbecue.  A list of simple ingredients  a crock pot left simmering on the counter, and voila! you have enough tasty barbecue for at least 12 hearty sandwiches. We like to pass a tangy cole slaw to heap on the bun along with the tender shredded pork. ,  https://kitchenkeepers.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/tangy-cole-slaw/

Root Beer Pulled Pork

2 pounds pork tenderloin

1  12 oz. bottle root beer

1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce

Spray bottom of slow cooker with cooking spray, place tenderloins inside, pour barbecue sauce and root beer over the top.  Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.  When ready to serve, lift pork out and place on platter.  Pull, or shred, with a meat fork. Serve on toasted buns with a spoonful of sauce and top with cole slaw.  Serves 12

This is great to reheat for later.
