Crock Pot Pulled Pork
I have a little problem. I tend to make new recipes when we have company. I know I should stick to something I have made before, but where’s the fun in that. Back when I was planning the Christmas party for my husband’s National Guard unit, I made pulled pork for the first time (I guess I like taking risks). I had no clue of what to do. But it was so simple! All you need:
- Pork roast (I read that the shoulder roast is best)
- Chicken or beef broth (I used chicken)
- Onion (optional)
- BBQ sauce (for making sandwiches)
Go ahead and plop your pork roast into the crock pot. Mine was still frozen. Pour the broth in until it just covers the meat. I had an onion on the counter and thought I would throw a handful of chunks in for fun. I left them pretty big so they would be easy to separate out of the meat. But it would probably taste great mixed in, too.
I turned the crock pot on high for about 4 hours. Once the meat begins to fall apart, it’s ready to be shredded.
I removed the meat from the liquid and used two forks to shred it up into bite-size pieces for sandwiches. I reserved some of the liquid and skimmed off the fat to pour over the shredded pork to keep it moist. You can also use BBQ sauce for this. I prefer a pulled pork sandwich without BBQ sauce. I’m weird. Josh adds sauce to his sandwich. (Try making these rolls! So Yummy!) Seriously, that was so easy. I wish I would just remember to use one of the disposable crock pot liners I have sitting in the cabinet…
