A friend gave me this recipe several years ago and I’ve since tweaked it a bit and passed it around to more friends. Double (or triple) it for your next party, always a crowd pleaser!
If you have leftovers, re-purpose the pulled pork for some southwest style tacos or grab a pizza crust at the store + your fave cheese for a bbq style pizza. (When you pull it out of the oven, drizzle with a little of your favorite ranch and sprinkle with green onion + cilantro-yum!) The opportunities are endless!
There’s a recipe for a delish/quick homemade BBQ sauce but if you’re in a hurry just grab a bottle of your favorite.
Oh, and another thing- this creamy slaw packs some tang…have some fun & try with a bag of broccoli slaw if you feel so inclined!?!
For the Pork
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
1/8 cup brown sugar
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp dried crushed pepper
4lb pork butt (shoulder) roast (this can be separate smaller roasts)
Season the pork butt with a little salt and pepper. Grab a large saute pan and brown the pork on all sides.
Put all ingredients in crock pot & mix. Place pork in sauce. Cover & turn on low for at least 8 hours. Turn roast over halfway through. When 8 hours is up, remove meat & let it cool. Remove meat from bone & shred.
Discard most of the cooking liquid, adding a little back to the meat once it’s shredded.
Homemade BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (or sub apple cider if you like it more sweet vs. tangy)
1/2 cup worchestershire
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Reduce heat to low & simmer until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, for about 15 mins.
(You will have extra, store in an airtight container in your fridge.)
1/2 cup mayo
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp grated onion
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tbsp dry mustard
1 tsp celery salt
1 bag cole slaw
Mix dressing & toss with cole slaw.
1 package Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls
I like to put the pulled pork on the roll, drizzle with a bit of warm BBQ sauce and top with the creamy cole slaw. And now my mouth is watering…
(If serving for a party, let the guests assemble their own for an interactive, low maintenance main course, and that way the sandos won’t get soggy.)
