Pulled Pork And Strawberry Shortcake

Summer's definitely here! It's been very hot here lately so I've been taking the kiddies out to the pool. Yesterday was family day so I've planned what we were going to do and that's to go out to the pool and swim. Do you ever find yourself quite hungry after swimming? We do.

This time I was prepared I decided to make Honey BBQ Flavour Pulled Pork. I went to the supermarket and purchased all of my ingredients and got everything in the oven before we went swimming. This roast was cooked in the oven for 6 hours and oh my gosh! The meat just fell apart after it was cooked and it melted in your mouth like butter.

This is an 8 lbs. roast that was cooked in a Dutch oven with Honey Barbeque Sauce. We took it out the dutch oven, placed it in a shallow bowl and pulled it apart with forks. It wasn't much work since it fell apart so easily.

After I've skimmed the fat off its juice and BBQ sauce we placed the roast back in its sauce to absorb more of the flavour.

For our sides we baked a Southwestern Potato Au Gratin from a carton and some Garlic and Herb mash. I couldn't be bothered to make it from scratch instead it was semi homemade and it was really good!

Supper!!! Yummmmmmmm..........

A meal is not complete without dessert. The kiddies and I assembled our own Strawberry Shortcake and the dark chocolate drizzle was a must!!

Today, were doing and eating the exact same thing again....: )

Ingredients for our version of Strawberry Shortcake..


8 lb. Roast Pork
2 onions
Honey BBQ sauce
2 cloves garlic (I forgot to add)


Preheat oven to 300F.
Place quartered onions on the bottom of  Dutch oven.
Place the meat on top of the onions and drizzle with BBQ sauce all over.
Cover with lid and put it in the oven and cook for 6 hours.


  1. Oh my! This looks like the perfect dinner and dessert combo. The pork does look beautifully slow cooked. I love to slow cook all my meats, the tenderness is definitely a winner!

    Are those yorkshire puddings? I've never thought to even make a dessert out of them even though they're made with the same ingredients as a regular pancake (which I laden in sugar after!) Either way, looks heavenly! I'm hope I'm invited to dinner over at yours, lol.

    1. Yes, you're invited : ) I have made the strawberry shortcake with yorkshire puddings as well. Sometimes we just drizzle them with warm dark chocolate. So delicious! This one's a store bought mini sponge cakes. You can host next tea and have me over : )

    2. Everything looks really delicious! I especially like this desert!

  2. Mmmm... they both look delicious. I like the way you have done pork. Bookmarking this.

  3. When I saw the title of this post I thought you might have combined pork and strawberries in the same dish - now that would have been adventurous but probably unpleasant. I soon realised my mistake. The pork looks delicious - in any weather - and I'm always ready for strawberries.

    1. Lol!! You're so funny : ) Yes, that would be quite an adventure. Thank you, I was thrilled that it came out the way it did and we all enjoyed it! : )

  4. What a fantastic meal!! I've actually never made pulled pork but always wanted to - I thnk you're the inspiration!

    1. Thanks Mary, I've never made them either. This was my first time. I love the fact that you just put it in the oven and not having to mess with it. : )

  5. Oh WOW! Your strawberry shortcakes look so special! I love the drizzled chocolate on top :) Perfect for Memorial Day!


    1. Yes, perfect indeed it has been a hit here for the past couple of days. I do love a dark chocolate drizzle! : )


Thank you for stopping by....
