PostHeaderIcon Recipe Friday: Slow-cooked BBQ Pulled Pork

BBQ Sauce
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
  • 5 cups hot water
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons flour or cornstarch

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until desired thickness. Can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 10 days.

For the pork:

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder (2 lb.)
  • 3 onions, sliced, separated into rings
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce

Place the pork in a slow cooker; top with onions and barbecue sauce. Cover with lid. Cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours (or on HIGH 4 to 5 hours).

Remove the meat from the cooker; cut off and discard excess fat. Chop meat into small pieces or shred with fork. Return to slow cooker; stir to coat with sauce.

Serve on toasted kaiser rolls.

Note: the pork recipe is for 8 sandwiches... but can be served with smaller rolls as part of a party buffet. And if you're not in the mood to make your own sauce, I recommend something like KC Masterpiece or Gates Spicy varieties.
