Easy Crock Pot Bar-B-Que Pulled Pork for a Hungry Bunch!

DSC_0336

Today I brought lunch to a bunch of hungry men, including two of my sons, who took a Saturday to pull their considerable talents and muscle together to build a very special tree house for a sweet little 5 year old girl, recovering from major surgery.

One of the easiest, most economical, filling,  and yummy things to Make & Take to feed a crowd is bar-b-que pulled pork sandwiches!  The sauce is so good, you really don’t need any condiments, but a spoonful of my Easy, Spicy Crunchy Asian Slaw on top adds extra  deliciousness!

I like to use an even mixture of pork loin (which is the lean white meat cut of pork) and pork butt (which is darker, a little fattier and more tender).  This recipe will easily feed 10 people, but I doubled the recipe today, and was able to cook the whole thing in my extra big crockpot — which yielded enough for 20.   Just turn on your crock pot the night before and it will be ready to pull it apart in the morning;  or start it in the morning and have dinner ready when you come home.

Easy Bar-B-Que Pulled Pork in a Crock Pot

2 – 3 lbs. pork loin

2 -3 lbs pork butt (with or without bone)

1 full head of fresh garlic, peeled, and rough chopped

2 t.  Tony’s Chachere’s Seasoning (or your favorite Cajun Seasoning with Salt)

2 t.  Grill Seasoning (or 1 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 t pepper)

2 T. Worcestershire Sauce

1 1/2 cups your favorite bottled  B-B-Q Sauce (I like Sweet Baby Rays)

1/2 cup ready-made Italian Dressing, any kind

1 t. Tabasco sauce

1 envelope dry Lipton Onion Soup mix

1 cup water

2 T. brown sugar (if you prefer your sauce a little sweet)

 

Directions:

Cut the pieces of pork into about 6 big pieces.  Whisk the rest of the ingredients for the sauce into a big bowl.  Pour half the sauce into the crock pot, add the cut pieces of pork arranging evenly, pour the rest of the sauce on top of the meat. Cook on high for 5 to 7 hours or until tender enough that when you pull at the meat with two forks it comes apart easily. When pork is tender, lift out the meat with tongs or two big spoons,  and place in a big rectangle pan.  Using two forks tear the meat into shreds.  Pour the sauce from the crock pot over the meat and mix evening so that the light and dark meats are evenly combined.  Taste and check seasonings, adjust to your taste.  At this point you can serve it  right away, or cover and refrigerate, then reheat in the oven (covered with foil) at 350 for about 20 minutes when you are ready to serve.  Serve on your favorite buns or potato rolls with slaw, extra bottled BBQ sauce, sliced pickles and jalapenos.
