This is by far my easiest dinner idea yet. I decided to make pulled pork in my slow cooker and used the new PC Pulled Pork Cooking Sauce, so we would still have the day free to play. I love pulled pork and buy it regularly at Boneheads BBQ, who does a killer version. Needless to say, I was going to a bit picky about this sauce. We LOVED it! It’ll get me through between trips to Boneheads for sure. The balance of tang vs sweet was perfect. When I went to the President’s Choice website to get the link for the sauce I read a user review who had used this sauce and some leftover pulled pork on a pizza and I think that would be absolutely delicious! At $2.49 (Atlantic) a jar, I will be keeping some of this in the cupboard.
Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
A 3lb boneless pork roast (I had an on sale boneless rib roast… great value)
1/2 cup water
Salt & pepper to taste
1 jar PC Pulled Pork Cooking Sauce
Great buns, toasted
Vinegar & Oil Coleslaw
In the morning, put the pork roast (mine was still slightly frozen) in slow cooker and sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour the water in the bottom of the crock. Cook on high for an hour and then turn to low and let cook until half an hour or so before dinner time (my new value-priced 3 qt slow cooker cooks hot, even on low, so mine was done by 3pm). Remove the pork to a heat-proof bowl and drain the liquid out of the crock. Using two forks, pull apart the pork and then return it to slow cooker. Add the entire jar of sauce and stir. Cover and let cook on low for the final half hour.
Serve on lightly toasted buns and topped with a vinegar-based coleslaw, for a no-fuss and hearty sandwich 🙂
Enjoy! And don’t worry Boneheads… until I figure out how to smoke a brisket like you, I’ll be back 🙂
