Slow Cooker BBQ Pork

Wow. This is one of those recipes you wonder how you got along without. Simple and yet so amazing. You can bet this will be added to our standard rotation. We served this up with a side of potato salad and come fresh corn on the cob and it was the perfect spring dinner following a busy day. I have a feeling this is going to make some absolutely marvelous left overs as well.


~3 lb pork loin
1 can beef broth
1 bottle BBQ sauce
Onions (optional)


Trim fat form pork loin and place in slow cooker. Top with beef broth and add water until entire loin is submerged. Depending on how it fits, you can always add another can of beef broth. Cook on low for about 4-5 hours.

Remove from cooker and shred meat with forks. Since this is to be sued as sandwich meat, use this to determine how much you'll need to shred the meat.

Drain broth into separate bowl and place shredded pork back into cooker. Mix in bottle of BBQ sauce and add broth if you feel it needs more juice. Cook on low for 1-2 hours.

Serve on buns, topped with onions or your choice of other toppings.

Add a divided clove shoved into the loin, then discard it of course, and it adds a bit of depth. I thrive on simple yet tasty and this recipe saved me! It's just what I needed - and no leftovers, so there's the proof! Thanks. Nora, mom of 3 teenagers.
