Slow Cooker Pulled Pork BBQ
1 pork roast (about 3 lbs)
1 18 oz bottle of sweet barbecue sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup chicken stock
1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 onion, thinly sliced into half circles
Sweet hawaiian buns for serving
Pickles, cole slaw, cheese – whatever you like on your pulled pork sandwich!
This is a set it and forget it recipe. Combine all the ingredients BUT the pork in the crock pot, mixing it up well. I used sweet baby ray’s hawaiian barbecue sauce and it was a bit more tangy than I liked, so that was my reasoning for the brown sugar. If you’d rather it be tangier then you are welcome to omit the brown sugar. Once everything’s mixed, dip the pork in for a bath, turning it a few times to coat. Turn on high and cook for six hours, turning periodically.
At that six hour mark, it’s time to pull the pork. I took it out in chunks and did it on a paper plate, then put it back in. Basically take two forks and pull the meat apart and it should shred off. Do it all and put it back into the slow cooker, and let it took for another 30 mins – an hour. Basically the longer it cooks, the more saucy and flavorful the meat will get.
Serve that baby up. this makes a ton and for two people, well we have plenty of leftovers. I’m using it instead of turkey in my turkey enchilada recipe from the other day. It’s going to be delicious! Here is a pic of my sandwich with sliced pickles and a little bit of shredded cheese with my reheated sweet potato corn cakes.
