Easy Bar-B-Q Pulled Pork

I know this is not Russian or Ukrainian. But it’s a great dinner idea and it’s super easy to make! And it tastes great too! Andrey actually told me that he could eat this all day.

Here’s what you need:

1 Bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce

1-2lb Port chops, pork loin or pork roast (cut into smaller pieces)

Slow cooker!

Put the pork into your slow cooker. I have just a little simple one that was gifted to me for my wedding 7 years ago. Still works!

Pour the entire bottle of barbecue sauce on top of the meat.

One of Andrey's favorite BBQ sauces and very inexpensive

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. The longer it cooks the softer the meat and the easier it is to pull apart.

When the meat is done cooking I take 2 forks and start pulling apart the meat. The picture above is the result.

To stay somewhat on the healthy side I chose whole wheat hamburger buns and toasted them. I topped them with the pulled pork (about 2-3 tablespoons). I like my sandwich with tomato.

For the side I decided on sweet potato fries that I baked in the oven following Martha Stewart’s recipe.

So easy…soooo good!



Rice Noodles with Pork

Warning!! This is not a Russian or Ukrainian dish. It is made by my mother who is Ukrainian so it made it to my blog. My husband and I enjoy this dish very much and we would like you to enjoy it as well. My mother uses bean noodles instead of rice noodles and it tastes amazing. This is a pretty easy dish and you can add whatever veggies you have on hand to create your own rice noodles with pork.


1/2 -1lb pork (depends on how much meat you want on your plate)

1 cup chopped white mushrooms

2 cups shredded cabbage

1 cup chopped bell pepper

1/4 cup green onion chopped

2 garlic cloves grated

1/4 cup vinegar (plus more depending on your taste)

salt and pepper

3 tbsp oil

What to do:

Heat oil in a large skillet and add pork. Cook pork until completely done. Add mushrooms, garlic, and cabbage. Cook on medium high heat until the veggies are soft and cooked down.

Cook the rice noodles or bean noodles according to package directions. If directions are not in English just place noodles in boiling water and cook until done, about 10 minutes. Do not overcook the noodles because they will get too soft and fall apart.

When the cabbage has cooked down add the bell peppers. Stir fry for a couple minutes until the bell pepper is slightly softened. Add salt and pepper to taste.

When the rice noodles or bean noodles are done cooking add to the pork and vegetable skillet. Add the green onions and vinegar. Softly stir everything together.

Place on a plate and enjoy!

Sooo good!
