I love a good pulled pork sandwich. It is always what I order when I go to Goodwood. I don't even really look at the rest of the menu...the only thing to consider is if I want it on a bun or not. I decided to make my own pulled pork for a house full of company last weekend (that's why there weren't any posts on my blog fyi). It was easy to make and totally exceeded my expectations. It was tangy, sweet and smoky. I like it plain but I'm sure it would be good with cheese, sauerkraut, pickles etc. Be sure to throw your pork in the Crock Pot in the morning so it will be perfect by dinner. Perfect for a crowd. Best of luck to you.
I like to use a pork roast with minimal fat.
Pour 2 Tbs vegetable oil in dutch oven pan. Let it get nice and hot before adding your pork roast. Salt and pepper your roast liberally on all sides.
After searing the pork on all sides for about 30 seconds, add a cup of chopped onions and 2 minced garlic cloves. Let the onion and garlic cook until transparent and soft. About 5 minutes.
Put pork in Crock Pot. Add 2 cups of water and 1 Tbs. Liquid Smoke. Let it cook on high for 6 - 8 hours and fork tender.
Remove pork from water and discard water. Place pork on cutting board and shred with two forks or a fork and knife. It should shred easily.
Add 2 cups barbeque sauce and mix together. Keep Crock Pot on warm until ready to serve.
This is my favorite barbeque sauce in the world. I love the flavor. I use it in quite a few recipes. It has never let me down.
Meanwhile, take your kaiser buns and split them open. Butter them on the cut sides. Place in skillet and let the bun get toasty brown.
Place a generous scoop of pulled pork on your toasted bun. Prepare to be amazed.comfort food dinner main dish pork 0 Comments

Salt and pepper pork roast liberally. Pour vegetable oil in dutch oven and allow to get hot. Add pork roast to hot pan and sear on all sides. Add onions and garlic until soft and transparent; about 5 minutes. Remove pork and place in Crock pot (scoop onions and garlic out of pan and into Crock Pot). Cover with water and liquid smoke. Let cook on high for 6 to 8 hours. When pork can be shredded easily, remove water from Crock Pot and discard. Shred pork and remove any fat as needed.
