Game Day Goodies

Its Superbowl Sunday! Time for the big game and big food. Along with the snacks for the pre-game munchies, I made a 7 pound pork roast. Nothing fancy. Just hearty and delicious, fork tender pork ready for game day finger food…tacos.

I dont typically measure when I season large cuts of meat. I usually eyeball it and this time was no different. I took salt, pepper, dried rosemary, and minced dried onion and added it to a large cup. I mixed it well and used it as a dry rub. I took 2 cartons of low sodium Swanson’s chicken broth and poured it into the bottom of my roasting pan. Bright & early at 7 am, this bad boy was popped into a 500 degree oven for 30 minutes before the temp was dropped to 300 degrees.

As it roasted, I brought out the lighter snacks than I normally put out. Its usually sandwiches, wings & lil smokies but this time I kept it small since its just the two of us. Chips, pretzels, dip, salsa, potato salad & veggies. Still a lot to munch on but not nearly as heavy.

After 7 hours and a house filled with the aroma of mouth watering deliciousness, it was time to tear into this juicy beast. I probably should have taken more pics of the tacos and toppings…but its time to grub so use your imagination.
