Pulled pork is one of those great set it and forget type slow cooker recipes. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes. Our middle daughter, Talia, was born with severe food allergies. I quickly got into the habit of compulsively reading food labels and carefully reviewing ingredients. Everyone loves barbecue sauce in our house but finding a brand that was safe for Talia and did not contain yucky ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, was extremely difficult. I now make my own barbecue sauce and have included the recipe below. It tastes just like the Sweet Baby Rays brand, which I use if I am pressed for time.
Because the pork recipe is so low maintenance, I love to use my bread machine to make the dough for these onion rolls. When the dough is done, knead it a couple of times on the counter, let the rolls sit for a little bit and bake them. This is a great dish to serve on a summer weekend when hosting a little backyard BBQ. There is so little work involved you can actually visit with your guests and not be hanging out in the kitchen or sweating in front of the grill. Serve with some salads and you're good to go!
3 pounds boneless pork ribs* (Ribs taste great but are a little fatty. I often buy a lean 3 lb boneless pork roast instead. Cut it in half and place in slow cooker.)
1 carton Natures Promise Beef Broth
4 1/2 cups of homemade BBQ sauce (recipe below) OR an 18 oz bottle of barbecue sauce (We like Sweet Baby Ray's)
Foil Pan (or any 9 X 13 dish)
