Recipe: Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

It's no surprise I love sandwiches and it's no surprise I love the crockpot. Combining the two? Jackpot! This past Sunday was one full of errands, nail appointments, Pure Barre and grocery shopping. The crockpot was my solution to this super busy day and pulled pork sandwiches were on the menu!

I love this meal, but to prepare the way I love it, I made my own BBQ sauce, found here and my own bread rolls, here. It seems like a lot of work, especially making it easy with the crockpot, but I promise homemade is the way to go!

Ingredients:
  • 4 pounds pork shoulder
  • 3 tablespoons smoke paprika
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon chili powder (reduce for less spice)
  • 2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 4 pieces of bacon (secret ingredient) 
How to Make:
  1. Lay pieces of bacon on the bottom of the crockpot. Pour in the broth.
  2. Mix all the spices together. Rub the rub into the meat and into all the crevices. 
  3. Place the meat into the crockpot.
  4. Cooking options can vary. Either 4 hours on high. 8 hours on low. We did two hours on low, 3 and 1/2 on high. 
  5. When done, shred the pork. Put back in the crockpot, mix with the juices. 
  6. Prepare your sandwich! 
  7. Enjoy!
you have to trust me with the bacon
 so perfectly seasoned
oh yeah.
