Mexican pulled pork recipe

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.18.2008

I am SO proud of Captain Caffeine! He bought a pork shoulder that was on sale and decided to make Mexican-style pulled pork in the crockpot.

Holy smokes, that stuff was good!!!!

So, not to be outdone, I made homemade flour tortillas (they're actually pretty easy) and we had a DELISH dinner the other night.

Captain Caffeine has graciously agreed to share his magic recipe (although I don't know if it's really magic since he only made it once).

4 pounds pork shoulder blade roast (pork butt)
12 ounces green salsa
1 packet taco seasoning
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 onion (optional)
2 jalapeno peppers (didn't have these, but next time I'll try)
1 beef bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup water

Dice onion and place in bottom of crock pot. Place pork on top of onions, sprinkle taco seasoning and cayenne pepper on top of pork. Add green salsa and beef bouillon mixture.

Turn crock pot on "high" setting for 6 hours, or until pork can be shredded by fork.

Serve with home made tortillas.

Update: Here's the tortilla recipe. I used this one from, but I also used the cooking instructions in this one from as a guide when pan frying them. I used my cast iron skillet without oil to cook them.


  1. this was a perfect Sunday football recipe! I love pulled pork and this style of making it...makes me love it even more! We just got our pork order in from so we are good to go fro this Sunday! Go Chargers!

  2. MMMM, that looks good. I may have to fly into Calif. just for that.

    BTW, I've tagged you for a meme, if you have the time to answer.

  3. That sounds delicious! What's the recipe for tortillas? I'm sure it's something simple, but I'm just not that good when it comes to cooking.

  4. Seconding the request for the tortilla recipe! My family loves tacos, and I hate having to resort to tacos salad whenever we're out of soft shells!

  5. Your post inspired me to make my own tortillas on Sunday and they turned out great! Thanks! :)

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
