Pulled Pork, Crash Hot Potatoes and Coleslaw

Make this dinner! That's an order. It is so good. M'kay!

Pulled Pork
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 2 pounds boneless pork roast (I used pork shoulder, and only half of it, it was too big for my crockpot)
* 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
* 1 medium onion, chopped (I used a yellow onion, very roughly chopped)
* 4 cloves garlic, crushed (I used the minced stuff in the jar)
* 4 cups water (or watery chicken broth, since I used less meat I only used about 3 1/2 cups)
* 1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring
1. Cut the pork roast into large chunks. Season generously with the Cajun seasoning. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and brown on all sides. Remove from the skillet, and transfer to a slow cooker.
2. Add the onion and garlic to the skillet, and cook for a few minutes until tender. Stir in the water scraping the bottom to include all of the browned pork bits from the bottom of the pan, then pour the whole mixture into the slow cooker with the pork. Stir in liquid smoke flavoring.
3. Cover, and cook on High for 6 hours, or until meat is falling apart.

Crash Hot Potatoes

* 1 bag of shredded carrots and cabbage (by the salads in the grocery store)
* 1 cup mayonnaise
* 1/3 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup cider vinegar
1. In a large bowl, combine cabbage and carrots. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar. Pour over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon.

This was seriously one of the best dinners ever!!!
Oh and serve it with a really good piece of White Bread (the kind from the store that seems like it's homemade, but it's just the regular stuff in the bag, uh does that make any sense?!)
I like to spread the coleslaw on a piece of bread, top it with pulled pork, spread some BBQ sauce on top and then eat it like a taco. Perfection!

(Sorry you can only get this BBQ sauce at Wallaby's smokehouse in Lindon Utah)
