Shaking Up Dinner, a Twist on BBQ

Posted 05-31-2012 at 11:23 AM by HollyRay

BBQ sandwiches are something of a summer staple. They are easy, they are tasty, and they are simple to make, add some potato salad and watermelon and you have yourself one awesome summer meal. As much as I like a good BBQ sandwich I think it’s time to mix it up by tweaking the same old staple of bread bun -meat with bbq sauce combo. Instead let’s try making fruit bread (cantaloupe or rhubarb) and root beer bbq and enjoying that for dinner. Here’s how it’s done.



1 can of root beer

1 lb meat of choice

BBQ Sauce

1. Cook meat in crock pot with root beer, once cooked drain saving 1 cup of the root beer broth. Add broth and bbq sauce and cook for one hour more.

Sandwich Bread

3 eggs
3/4 cup applesauce
1 cup Truvia Baking Blend or Stevia
2 Cups peeled, seeded, and pureed cantaloupe or pureed rhubarb
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 325, grease two loaf pans
2. Throw everything into a bowl and mix well
3. Cook for 50 minutes
