Someone requested a recipe blog post and since we know how popular those are, here is mine.
Mama B’s Combo Recipe
Quarantine Cooking: Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker
*Chunk of pork
*I used a 2 pound pork top loin boneless roast. I wish it had been bigger and a different cut of meat. I used a shopping service since I have not been inside a store since the second week of March. They substituted the best they knew how I guess. I am upset that they didn’t read my note and get the buy one get one offer, but that’s another story.
Then I made a rub with
1 TBSP paprika
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp packed brown sugar
Stir together the above ingredients, it’s quick and easy using a cereal bowl and a fork! Than rub it on the entire roast.
Place roast in crock pot, aka slow cooker.
Sprinkle on top:
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
Add 1 tsp chicken bouillon to ¾ cup water and pour in bottom of crock.
Cook on high for 2 hours and low for 4 hours, or use any variation of time that gives you shred-able cooked pork.
- Finally, remove the meat from the pot
- Save the saucy juice
- Scrape off top heavily seasoned layer of fat
- Shred meat with forks.
- Return shredded pork to the pot
- Add ½ cup of the saved juice, 1 cup of BBQ sauce, and ½ cup or more of water. Stir together and add more water or sauce for desired consistency.
We enjoyed it with coleslaw on a whole wheat bun. Some folk like to add the slaw to the sandwich, some prefer it on the side. Include a small side of BBQ baked beans (Bush’s Smokehouse Grillin’ beans are our favorite, second to homemade.)
If I do not eat all the kettle cooked potato chips, we will have those on the side too.
**This is what I call a “combo recipe.” I pull ideas from several different sources. While some of my COMBO recipes (unmeasured ingredients which are often just eye-balled) do not turn out, this recipe was voted a huge success.
Please use a larger roast, especially if you enjoy leftovers. This 2 pound roast made 6 generously portioned sandwiches.
Always characteristics of my favorite recipes!
We love spices, especially these:
