Simple Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Homemade BBQ Sauce

Simple Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Homemade BBQ Sauce

Anyone can do this. My usual disclaimer: since I don't measure unless I'm baking, this recipe is up for tweaking and a little intuition. I have full confidence that it is nearly impossible to mess up slow cooked meat and BBQ sauce.
  • 2 2 lb. pork sirloin tip roasts
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper

For BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, save empty can for measuring
  • about 1/3 empty can, cider vinegar, more or less depending on tangy preference
  • about 1/4 empty can, honey
  • about 1 cup brown sugar, less if you are not into sweet BBQ
  • about 1 tablespoon, liquid smoke
  • lots of cracked pepper salt

To serve:

  • cheddar cheese
  • red onion kaiser rolls,┬áhamburger buns, or slices of bread

Place both pork roasts in slow cooker and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Turn to low, and cook for 8 hours. Shred pork with two forks inside slow cooker. Do not drain liquid.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine tomato sauce, and all other ingredients, and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour sauce directly into slow cooker. Combine. (*Double the BBQ sauce recipe if you plan to serve with sauce on the side....or you can always serve with the store-bought stuff.)

Serve on rolls or bread, with sliced cheddar and thinly slice red onion. Heavenly.
