Delicious BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich
What isn’t to love about BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches? It’s easy to make and delicious to eat. You can make it for your family for dinner or for a big group at a party. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is something I do for both. I make this in the crock pot for a meal for my family, but I also make larger roasts in the oven as well. I use the same ingredients no matter how I cook it.
This roast cooks all day in the crock pot sitting in apple juice and surrounded by onions and green peppers. If you don’t like onions and green peppers, don’t worry, they’re only used for flavor and discarded later on. Season the pork with your favorite seasoning and you’re ready to let it cook away.
After it cooks all day then drain the juices and discard the onions and green peppers. Shred the pork with an electric mixer and put the meat back into the crock pot. Add BBQ sauce and let it cook another hour.
Lets talk BBQ sauce! In my book there is only one choice when it comes to BBQ sauce, and that is Sweet Baby Ray’s, this stuff is the best. If you want to use another brand you can. But if you don’t have a favorite yet, try out Sweet Baby Ray’s. You won’t be disappointed.
Sit back. Relax. And enjoy a Delicious BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich.
