Mason Jar BBQ Sundae Supper

When I read this article in Southern Living I knew then and there that I had to recreate it for our next Sunday Supper…

“From his Ole Miss days, Foods Editor Scott Jones fondly remembers the BBQ Sundae served at the Rebel Barn BBQ in Oxford. An entrée, not dessert, the sundae layers pork, slaw, and baked beans, all covered in thick, sweet red sauce.”

…and boy am I glad I did.  It would be darling and practical for feeding a crowd as well.  (It’s not often that I can put “darling” and “practical” in the same sentence…just ask Honey.)
May 2012 828 copy Here’s how to pull it off – this will serve 12 in the small size mason jars:
– 2 cans baked beans
– 1 recipe of my easy slaw
– 1 recipe of my hands down never had better crock pot BBQ
– jar of bread and butter pickles
– Layer beans, slaw, bbq and then top with a pickle garnish.
– Swoon from Southern goodness

My Easy Slaw

  • 1 bag shredded coleslaw mix
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1 T honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
    1. Whisk together everything for sauce.
    2. Mix into shredded coleslaw and chill until ready to serve.

    My Hands Down Never Had Better Crock Pot BBQ

    • 4 lb. eye of round roast if you’re feeling spendy; 4 lb. piece of pork if you’re not
    • 1 tsp salt
    • large can tomato sauce
    • 12 oz. bottle chili sauce
    • 1 chopped sweet onion
    • 1/2 cup vinegar
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
    • 1/2 tsp chili powder
    • 1/2 tsp paprika
    • buns (if you’re not serving in a jar, of course)
    1. Place roast in crock pot.  Sprinkle with salt and add water to cover.  Cook on 6 hours. 
    2. In the last hour, stir together tomato sauce and next 10 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
    3. Shred meat and mix with sauce.

    Both recipes from Southern Living back in the day.  I apologize for not having dates/issues but I’ve had these cut out in my recipe book for ages.

    Happy eatin’ y’all!

    Excited for the features on Huffington PostTip Junkie and Artsy Girl!

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I've been reading your blog for quite some time now, but this is my first time to comment. Thank you for the BBQ crock pot recipe. I'm an avid foodie, but have never really mastered BBQ pork. Your SL recipe looks like exactly what I need. And, what a fun idea, layered BBQ in a mason jar!

    2. Thanks for sharing! I will have to give it a try. I had never made pulled pork before and I tried your "easy" recipe from one of your Sunday suppers. It was delicious and a real hit around here. We even served it at the birthday girl's family birthday dinner.


    3. I am saving both these recipes. I always find you have the greatest recipes here and there are a couple that I have used several times already. I was just looking for a BBQ crockpot recipe yesterday- couldn't find a good one so did them in the oven. Thanks- xo Diana

    4. This looks yummy to me, but I don't know if my very northern-born & bred hubby will go for it or not. Well, I can always serve his on a plain ole plate — boring, but ya know how hubbies can be sometimes!

    5. Oh my goodness, I love your blog! I came across it from Kelly's Korner and am so glad I did. You've done such an amazing job with your home renovations, and your family is just beautiful! Thanks for sharing this recipe, it looks yummy. I will definitely be trying it soon :)

    6. WOW, totally featuring you tonight.. YUMNESS.. THIS ROCKS… Can I have a jar pweeease..? :)) Thanks SO much for linking / sharing last week via Pin'Inspirational Thursday.. LOVE it.. ; ))
