Y’all will not believe how easy this was! The fact that it cooks in the slow cooker is such a bonus, too, because what’s better than coming home to supper already done?
Ready for a long list of ingredients? You will need:
- A pork roast
- Salt, plus onion powder, rib rub, or whatever spices sound good
- BBQ sauce
So intimidating, right?
Now to create the goodness:
- Put pork roast in a slow cooker and sprinkle on salt and whatever spices your little heart desires; I did onion powder and a rib rub Yankee had in the cabinet. Add enough hot water to fully cover the roast and turn the slow cooker on low; ignore it for the next 8-12 hours or so, depending on size
- After it’s cooked through remove meat to a cutting board and chop it up, discarding fat and any bone; pour the water out of the slow cooker (pork broth! Feel free to freeze it for later use)
- Serve! Either on a plate or on a bun, topped with your favorite BBQ sauce
Side note: some folks return the chopped meat to the slow cooker and add in BBQ sauce so they can cook together for a bit; I don’t because I find that cooking the BBQ sauce down makes it too sugary
How easy was that? This is great with green beans!
