Oink, oink! The slow cooker was the prime choice for Al's BBQ Pulled Pork recipe as the pork needs to cook for a long time. Allen used 3 lbs. of Boneless Pork Loin Country Style Ribs and seasoned both sides of the pork with kosher salt and McCargo's The Flavor of Bold Signature Rub and put it in the crock pot. 14 ounces of Kitchen Basics Beef Stock was added, 1 onion sliced in quarters and cooked for 4 hours on high. In the last 30 minutes of cooking time, add 6 cloves of garlic to the crock pot.
You can save the broth and freeze it for future use. Take the pork out of the crock pot and shred it with a fork and place it in a dutch oven or large pot. Allen then added 14 ounces of Picky Vicki Nice 'N Sweet Mild BBQ Sauce which tastes fantastic, and one tablespoon of Paula Deen Collection Hot Sauce. Paula Deen's hot sauce is great and has lots of flavor and not too much heat so you can add as little or as much as you like. Finally, stir everything together and simmer in pot on low-medium heat for about 15 minutes.
In the meantime, add some butter to your buns and toast them. Serve the pulled pork on the toasted buns. We did not add coleslaw or lettuce, tomato but feel free to go crazy. Al's BBQ Pulled Pork was so tasty, with the perfect amount of tang and heat it didn't need anything extra on it. Well, Allen really didn't want anything else on it so we left it at that.
I made my yummy potato salad to go with Al's BBQ Pulled Pork recipe. For my potato salad recipe, check it out here: http://twofrys.blogspot.com/2011/04/potato-salad.html.
We had a lot of the pulled pork leftover so we put that in the freezer for future meal concoctions. I already have a recipe in mind to incorporate Al's BBQ Pulled Pork as a chili dish, and another recipe for pulled pork bean burritos. Both will be posted when we make those two recipes. If you are a pal of pork (POP) [a little Guy Fieri ism for ya], you will love this recipe. What is great about this recipe is that the slow cooker does all the work and your place will smell delicious.
