In honor of the recent $1.00 off fresh pork coupon, let me present: Easy-peasy, don’t want to deal with cooking tonight, everyone likes it and won’t complain, BBQ pork in the slow cooker!
Here you see: One bottle of BBQ sauce (I think it was $.25 at Ultra after coupon last summer), and one little boneless sirloin pork roast ($1.99/lb at Pete’s Market through today). I bought this Sunday before the coupon came out, so my 2.56 lb roast cost $5.09. You’ll want about 2.5-3lbs of pork roast for this, and use a nice thicker sauce like KC Masterpiece or Sweet Baby Ray’s if you have it.
So you take your pork roast. You put it in your crock pot. And you pour in a whole bottle of BBQ sauce. You can also add some big slices of Vidalia onion if you have any handy — it’s a nice touch, but I didn’t have any, and it’s fine without. (Plus, then it would be THREE ingredient BBQ pork, and then that would be a whole new recipe.) Cook on low 8-10 hours.
Shred. Voila! BBQ pork. The one downside to this is that your house will smell wondermous all day while this slow-cooks, so if you work from home like I do, you’ll be constantly hungry and snacking on other stuff out of the fridge, and then wonder why you don’t have room for dinner later. But then you eat some anyway, because it is really good and then you wonder why you’re so darn full when all you had was a little BBQ pork. But I digress. And maybe that’s just me…
So then you make yourself a BBQ pork sandwich. On a hamburger bun, or on low carb bread (and no, this is not low-carb BBQ sauce, but MashupAtkinsDad eats it anyway!), or on the ends of a gluten free bread loaf and pretend they are a bun — this again is adaptable. Your sandwich should not be half eaten, but the children got to them before I could take the photo. So this is an action shot.
Allergen info. The KC Masterpiece site is less than helpful as to whether KC Masterpiece original BBQ sauce is gluten free. Their products are not manufactured on dedicated equipment, however. To make this completely gluten (and dairy!) free, use a sauce you’re confident is gluten free, and serve on gluten/dairy free bread products. Mr. 10 is dairy free and mostly wheat free, so we don’t have to worry about cross-contamination or hidden gluten.
