I made the easiest meal ever last week and it was delicious. I used the crock pot, which I just started using a few years ago. I previously was a crock pot snob; I always thought meals from the crock pot might fall in the same category with hamburger helper, food to fill you up perhaps but not incredibly tasty food. But this was not only easy, it was so good. Please give it a try. I served the pulled pork on a sandwich bun with a generous spoonful of red cabbage coleslaw and a squeeze of Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Barbeque Sauce. The combination of flavors was out of this world.
I used a jar barbeque sauce for the crock pot that wasn’t as sweet at Sweet Baby Ray’s so I decided to add apple cider to add a bit of extra flavor and sweetness. If you are using a relatively sweet barbeque sauce, you may want to use half apple cider and half water.
4 pounds pork loin
2 large onions, sliced
2 cups apple cider
1 jar barbeque sauce (14 to 16 ounces)
Add pork to the crock pot. Cover the pork with onion slices. Add barbeque sauce and apple cider to the crock pot and you are done for now. Cook on high for 6 to 8 hours or 8 to 10 hours on low (until pork is fall apart tender). Once pork is very tender, using a large spoon, stir the mixture until pork falls apart.
Garnish with coleslaw and a squeeze of barbeque sauce on sandwich bun.
