Slow-cooker Pulled Pork ~ so easy!

OK, if you read my blog you may have caught on that I do not like taking shortcuts in cooking nor do I like to use packaged goods- mixes, boxed things, etc. But I make an exception for this meal- my slow-cooker pulled pork. Why? because I can overlook the preservatives & sugar this one time for the taste that comes from this as well as the ease. Plus, I only use a little of the reduced sauce on my sandwich, the rest is pure pork. Oh so delicious pork at that!!! I am almost embarrassed to blog this. Almost... try it. Between the simplicity & the quickness + the amount it yields, it just may become a staple in your home. It is a once a month treat in mine. And my Mother & Father-in-law love it. Add the fresh rolls my Father-in-law contributed & you have:

Slow-cooker Pulled Pork
1 pork loin, shoulder or butt*, 4lbs or larger
1 Bottle of BBQ sauce, your favorite flavor*

Squeeze a little sauce onto the bottom of the slow-cooker. Place the pork onto the sauce, then top it with the rest of the bottle. Fill empty bbq sauce bottle with water & add it to the slow-cooker. Cook on LOW, 8-10 hours. Shred & serve.


* Tonight I used a 4 lb. Loin. It yielded 4 heaping sandwiches + extra
* I love Kraft Honey BBQ

It is juicy & delicious. The sauce reduces & caramelizes the outside of the pork. Dollop some on top of your sandwich! Or eat it shredded in tacos, on it's own, etc. It is that good.
