BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

My sister told me about this recipe and I made them yesterday. They are very good, and quite easy to make. It uses a seasoning packet and is made in the crock pot, so the meat turns out very tender. You could easily use your own homemade sauce, or a bottled one, but this is very good, too. It has a nice, smokey flavor to it.



Printable Recipe

3 pounds boneless pork shoulder, well trimmed of fat (I used a boneless pork loin roast)
1 pkg McCormick "Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning"
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

Place pork in crock pot. In a bowl or saucepan, mix together the seasoning packet, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar and pour over the roast. Cover. Cook on LOW for 8 hours, or on HIGH for 4 hours. Remove pork from crock pot and using two forks, shred meat. Return meat to crock pot and continue cooking for about 5 - 10 minutes to heat the meat back up. The sauce is quite thin, so you may want to add a little bit of bottled bbq sauce if you desire a thicker sauce. However, if allowed to sit for several minutes, the meat will absorb much of the sauce. Serve on buns.

The roast I had was closer to 5 pounds, so I cut it down to 3 pounds. If your roast is larger, you will need to cook it longer than the specified time.
