This past weekend, I made dinner for some friends of ours. At the last minute, Anthony and I spontaneously went to Berkeley to visit our newest favorite coffeehouse, Cafe Yesterday, so I needed to make something ahead of time. Pulled Pork in the Crock-pot was the last minute workhorse! For a side dish, I turned to my go to blogger, Jessica Fisher (Life As Mom & good(CHEAP)eats), for the Deli Potato Salad recipe.
- Pork loin (I used 7.5 pounds)
- Pappy's Favorite Rub/Seasonings
- Olive Oil
- Onions, sliced
- BBQ sauce (see below for the recipe)
- Bread (I used sliders)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the pork into large pieces, for the 7 1/2 pounds, I cut 6 pieces. Rub each piece with olive oil and your favorite seasonings. Place a few onion pieces on the fat side, wrap in foil and place fat side facing up on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Let cool slightly. Remove any extra fat and the onion pieces. Tear the meat with forks.
If cooking immediately, place in the Crock-pot with BBQ sauce on low-heat for 4-6 hours. The meat may need stirring if it begins to brown on the edges. Serve with your favorite bread & additional sauce, if desired.
BBQ Sauce (for 7 Pounds of Pork)
- 4 cups of Ketchup
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
- 1/2 cup Water
Mix all ingredients. Serve!
