BBQ Pork Roast Made By Mom

My mom made dinner tonight. She made BBQ Pork Roast. Mmmmm Yum!

Usually, SP and I make pork BBQ by slow cooking pork with BBQ sauce, shredding the pork, and then slow cooking the shredded pork & sauce a bit longer. We eat it on a bun and have cole slaw on the side. Tonight's BBQ pork was a bit different but just as tasty.

Mom browned the pork roast in a bit of bacon fat (we save bacon drippings in a jar) and then roasted it in a glass baking dish in the oven at 325, periodically brushing on a bit of BBQ sauce. It was a 5 lb pork roast and according to the packaging, it should roast for 50 minutes per pound, which is 250 minutes, which is a bit over 4 hours. That would have been way too long! It was done after 3.5 hours - and it was well done but not dried out. Fifteen minutes less would have been good.

She made a BBQ sauce following a recipe in the Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook, but modifying it a bit to suit her taste. Basically, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and onion.
We always have extra BBQ sauce on the table for dipping.

My dad likes rice with his pork BBQ so I made rice. For a vegetable, we had green beans & snow peas. A tasty dinner, made by mom. Not that SP & I don't enjoy cooking, because we most definitely do, but sometimes it's really, really nice to have your mom cook for you!

For dessert, we had Breyer's raspberry chocolate ice cream topped with a squirt of whipped cream and a Bing cherry. Yum!
