Mouthwater Pulled Pork Sandwiches
The weekend started promptly with my sister and her beautiful family coming to visit. We had not only the best time and memories spent, but we also enjoyed wonderful food including these pulled pork sandwiches. They were mouthwatering goodness!
While they were here we enjoyed wonderful conversations and time well spent with one another. Times like these make me appreciate family and what it stands for. Family is so crucial and simple gatherings recreate those deep, lasting impressions not only on my heart, but on our children as well.
We hung out at the very back to consume as much shade as possible (or shall I say, enjoy the port-a-potties). Just kidding…kinda!
Trace sat up in a tree enjoying the music without any distractions ahead of him. He really enjoyed this experience and I was thankful to be able to participate in this one-hit-wonder with them! :) You know, kids and their first concert experience. What a blessing that they enjoyed the atmosphere and Christian fellowship.
After being there all day in the high heat, I had planned ahead to come home to pulled pork in the crock pot. I thought this would be genius as I know we all would be hungry upon our arrival home and would need something delicious and available very promptly.
This was the perfect meal to come home to and a perfect meal to feed 8 people. :)
So lets get into it….
- 1- 4 lb boneless pork shoulder
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 28 ounce (3 1/2 cups) Barbecue sauce, separated
- 2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp garlic salt
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- Ciabatta Rolls
Sprinkle the bottom of your crock pot with chicken broth, one onion and minced garlic.
Next, rub garlic salt, paprika, chili powder and cumin on the pork shoulder. Place in slow cooker.
Top with second onion and dump 2 1/2 cups barbecue sauce upon everything. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours (or high 4-6 hours).
When the pork is cooked remove from slow cooker reserving sauce. Add in 1/2-1 cup additional barbecue sauce and 1 tbsp white vinegar and stir well. Strain sauce to rid of any excess fat.
Meanwhile, pull pork apart with a fork and add to strained sauce. Mix together and top on a toasted Ciabatta roll with coleslaw.
Such a simple meal and so wonderfully delicious! Nothing beats a pulled pork sandwich.
This is for all you meat lovers out there! :)
