This is a delicious pulled pork using homemade BBQ sauce, made in the slow cooker. I love the BBQ sauce- I don't like any store-bought varieties very much, so haven't used it much at all lately. This homemade one is really good. You can top these pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, which makes it even more delicious. Note: The recipe calls for lemon juice in the slaw, but I think I'll replace with apple cider or honey vinegar next time, to add a bit more sweetness.
BBQ Pulled Pork
adapted from Closet Cooking
1 cup BBQ Sauce, recipe follows
coleslaw, recipe follows
1. Put the pork in the slow cooker, pour 1/2 cup of the bbq sauce over it and cook on low heat for 8 hours.
2. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and let cool. Meanwhile, skim the fat from the juices, place the juices in a sauce pan and simmer to reduce. Mix as much of the juices as you want into the remaining bbq sauce.
3. When the pork is cool enough to work with, shred it with a pair of forks. Mix the pulled pork bbq sauce. Assemble sandwiches and enjoy, topping with extra BBQ sauce and coleslaw, optional.
