There are days when cooking is really not in the cards, but I really love to try to make supper at home most days, even when on a very tight schedule. The Crock Pot is my life saver! BBQ pulled pork has got to be the easiest of the recipes out there, since you can pretty much throw in all the ingredients, run away for 8 hours and have a perfect meal ready when you come home. I've tried a few recipes, but finally came up with one I can throw together with what we almost always have in the fridge and pantry.
3-4 lb pork roast trimmed
2 medium sized onions thickly sliced
1 1/2 cups of apple juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup BBQ sauce of 1 cup ketchup and 2 tablespoons of molasses
I basically put the sliced onions on the bottom of the crock pot, put the roast on top of the onions, then sprinkle and cover with the rest of the ingredients covering with the BBQ sauce last. Set on high for 8 hours or low for 12, depending how long you plan to be away I suppose, cover and walk away. It's done when the meat basically can be pulled apart with a fork. Drain some of the juice/fat from on top if there seems to be too much. You can pull apart right in the pot or transfer it into a serving dish and the add some of the sauce at the bottom. Serve on buns or totillas, coleslaw and pickles make good sides, but you can have any salad and veggies, whatever makes you smile.
