I'm still trying to figure out how to find time to put all of it together. It's gonna happen and I'm gonna figure it out. I just....haven't yet. So, now and lately, I'm mostly posting recipes because, 1) I love sharing recipes (duh), and 2) I do somehow make time to cook and simply taking pictures and writing up a post of the recipe is pretty easy. Not too time-consuming.
But I want to share more! So I will. It just might take a little time (like, maybe after I defend my master's thesis in 10.5 days AHH). I appreciate the couple of requests for posts I've gotten and I do plan to follow up on them (hints: organization, healthy snacks, at-home workouts). Just so you know. In the meantime, however, don't be disappointed that this post is another recipe because it's AWESOME.
The recipe my mom is most known-for is this barbecue. Our extended family calls it Ruth's Butt (her name is Ruth). When we'd have family gatherings at our house growing up, if we were lucky, my parents would make this barbecue. My mom made the pork and my dad made the sauce. Everyone loves it, and why wouldn't they? The pork butt is slow-cooked with apple cider vinegar in a low-temp oven allllll day until it's fall-apart tender, then topped with a spicy and unique vinegar AND tomato-based barbecue sauce. It's amazing. And somehow I hadn't made it myself until this weekend! My mom emailed me the recipe and I had to try it. The result? *Almost* as good as the original :)
This recipe is an all-day thing. Perfect for a lazy Saturday or Sunday or when you have guests coming over for a casual dinner one weekend night. It won't disappoint!
