BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches ~ Smoky pulled pork that simmers in the crock pot all day while you are busy and comes together in a couple minutes!
Do you have those foods that you know you want to make but you never really get there? This is one of them for me. I have bookmarked, cut out, highlighted etc. None of this ever helped me actually make BBQ Pulled Pork. I knew it couldn’t be that hard but all the recipes I found had all sorts of rubs, homemade sauce, etc. I knew I wanted simple recipe that I could throw in the crock-pot and go to work and when I got home it would almost be done. Then I came across this recipe and it had rave reviews on Tasty Kitchen and I knew I had to make it. Another motivating factor was I’m trying to find recipes that I can make and not heat up the entire kitchen which made me think of the crock-pot, but all the recipes I have reminded me of winter. This is a summer recipe in my opinion so I gave it a whirl. I can not say enough about it. It’s super duper easy, incredibly good, and the meat literally fell apart when I was trying to take it out the crock-pot. It got rave reviews from my hubby also, which is good because I truly have been striking out lately as you all read in the last post. This totally redeemed me and I’m sure he thinks I’m the best wife in the world again! Try this recipe even if you have a different one you usually use. The secret ingredient is the hickory flavored smoke so make sure you use it. I used a 4 lb bone-in pork shoulder because the local grocery store didn’t have boneless and it still turned out great although I cut back on the BBQ sauce a little. We had leftovers so stay tuned for what I used them for the next night! Enjoy!
