Pulled Pork Sandwiches

So, you know by now my affinity for ridiculously easy recipes, and now that I have my Little Black Book of Recipes to start filling up, I thought it would be smart when I browse the book to include a yummy-looking photo of each of our favorites.  Have you ever noticed when you look at a menu with photos, you’re drawn to the items pictured?  I figure, it sure can’t hurt, anyway!

So even though this is a 2-ingredient recipe (three, if you count buns), it’s one of our favorites.  And favorites are meant to be shared!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

  • 3-4 lbs. pork loin, fat trimmed off (you can also use chicken, if your family prefers it!)
  • 16 oz. bottle of BBQ sauce (our family uses Sweet Baby Ray’s Original)

I cut my pork into chunks so that to will shred easier later, but it’s probably not necessary.  Toss it in the crock pot on low in the morning, and it will be ready at dinnertime.  If you’re at home at all during the day, stirring it here and there will help the sauce soak into the meat as it breaks up.  It should cook for 6-8 hours on low.

The key is finding a sauce that everyone loves – not too hot, not too mild for your tastes – so that you don’t have to add any additional ingredients (although you can – I insist that a little brown sugar never hurt anyone, but that’s up to you!)  Also, we like our meat to be really saucy (obviously, LOL) so I never use more than 3 lbs. of meat for one bottle of sauce.

BBQ goes great with coleslaw (so great, in fact, that there was none left by the time I had a chance to take a photo, LOL) and it warms up wonderfully for lunch leftovers!

What are your easy, go-to recipes?

    Mmmmm,…pulled pork is one of my favourite weaknesses. I should have had a bigger lunch before reading your post, lol. For go-to recipes, I love to whip up soups with whatever is on hand, or stews if I get distracted and leave them on the stove too long. ;) I also just love roasted veggies with some goat cheese and a piece of crusty loaf. Now I'm insanely hungry.

    That is a great idea, to take photos, this looks delicious. You can also through your favorite cola in there (root beer, dr. pepper, etc.) And it helps tenderizes the meat, and gives it a little flavor.
