BBQ is hands down my favorite food to eat. Matt and I once went on a BBQ road trip for our anniversary and we never got tired of eating it. We don’t usually make our own barbecue but when I saw this recipe I had to try it. The sandwiches turned out pretty darn good and we enjoyed them with good company and tasty side dishes.
Crock Pot Barbecue Pork Sandwiches
from the Pillsbury Savvy Shopper’s Cookbook
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 lb boneless country-style pork ribs, trimmed of fat, cut into 2-inch pieces
6 kaiser rolls or burger buns, split
What To Do
Spray a 3.5- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker, mix both sauces and garlic. Stir in pork to coat.
Cover; cook on Low for 8 – 10 hours.
Remove pork from slow cooker; place on plate. Shred pork by pulling apart with 2 forks. Return pork to sauce in slow cooker; mix well. If desired, to toast rolls, place cut sides up on an ungreased cookie sheet; broil 4 – 6 inches from heat for 1 – 2 minutes or until toasted.
I put my garlic clove through the mincer.
I did not remove the pork from the slow cooker to shred it…it was easy enough to shred it right in the slow cooker.
As you can see in the photo, I did not use kaiser rolls or burger buns, but pretzel buns. YUM. Use whatever you like.
While technically this isn’t barbecue (I’m sure the BBQ University guy would freak out), this is a great alternative if you don’t have a grill or smoker or any other necessary equipment for “real” barbecue…like a whole hog and a giant pit in your back yard…so if you have a hankering for some easy-to-make pulled pork sandwiches, I recommend giving this recipe a try.
