SLOW COOKER BBQ PULLED PORK NUMBER 1
I’ve revised this recipe a bit since I purchased a new slow cooker:
Put a three pound boneless pork loin roast with 1 cup water in slow cooker. Add a small chopped onion. Cook on high for 4 hours or so or on low 6-8. What you are looking for is meat that is fork tender. Drain some of the liquid, leaving some to moisten meat.
Shred with fork. Add 1/2 of a 28oz bottle bbq sauce, more or less to your taste, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire and 1 tablespoon hot sauce or to taste. If you have your favorite BBQ seasoning, sprinkle some of that in, too. Cook on low for 1 hour. Can be frozen.
SLOW COOKER BBQ PULLED PORK NUMBER 2
This is a rather messy, but oh-so-delicious sandwich. Serve with a side of slaw and you’ll get rave reviews! You could also bake this, covered, in a slow (275 degrees) oven for several hours, or until fork tender. You may need to add more sauce after roasting, since this is a dry heat.
3 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1-1/2 cups favorite bbq sauce
1 small onion, chopped
Couple dashes garlic powder or ¼ teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
Extra barbecue sauce as needed
Trim fat and cut meat in half. Put into crockpot. Pour barbecue sauce on, add onion and garlic powder and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove meat and pull into shreds, using two forks. Add sauce from the crockpot to the meat, going to taste on amount. Serve with more sauce for passing. Serves 8-12.
