BBQ Pulled Pork

IMG_4527

I was going through my weekly menu planning and hit a bump in the road as to what new I could make.  So I went to Heidi (my friend/co-worker) and asked her to give me some good ideas.  This reminded me of the Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls.   I was trying to decide what to eat this with.  Heidi had said she has dinner rolls and coleslaw with hers, so I followed what she made.  But this would be good over pasta or rice as well.

The flavor of this pork is so good.  It was in the slow cooker almost all day.  Soaking in all of the BBQ sauce, garlic, onion…mmmm.  The house smelled amazing!!  Glad there’s a bit left over for me to have some lunch tomorrow!!

Clyde even got to taste it!!  I’m pretty sure he enjoyed it!

yield: 6 servings
Ingredients:
3 lb. pork shoulder (I used two pork loins)
1 cup water
1/2 bottle BBQ sauce
salt & pepper
1/2 onion diced
————————
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bottle BBQ sauce
1/3 cup packed brown sugar (way too sweet, we add 1/4 cup unpacked)
1 tablespoon yellow mustard – I didn’t use the mustard (some aren’t a fan of the flavor of mustard)
salt & pepper

Directions:
In a crock pot, place pork, water, bbq sauce, salt, pepper and onion. Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 hours until very tender. Remove all meat from crock pot. Spoon off fat from remaining liquid in crock pot and discard about half the liquid as well (you want it to be moist but not too watery–mine was a little on the watery side, so remove more then you think and you can always add more back in). Shred pork removing all excess fat. Return to crock pot and stir in garlic, bbq sauce, brown sugar, mustard and more salt and pepper. Cook another hour or so until all flavors blend and the garlic taste mellows out a little. Serve with fresh rolls and coleslaw.

This was exactly what Heidi said…super easy to make.  My son made sandwiches with with the rolls and meat.  I hadn’t thought of doing that.  Add more onion and some cheese!  Hmmm, maybe next time!
Have a great week and enjoy!
