Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ with Slaw
This is a great dish...all of my 'guys' absolutely love it! We girls do to, we just can't eat 2 or 3 sandwiches at a sitting is all. I highly recommend adding the slaw to the sandwich..the sweet tangy punch of the slaw is terrific with the smokey BBQ pork. I serve this on nice soft rolls, in pitas, in a tortilla, or just piled in a bowl and eaten with a fork!
Pulled Pork BBQ
Pork Shoulder (at least 5lb)
4tbl smoked paprika
2 tbl garlic powder
1 tbl seasoned salt
1 tbl cracked black pepper
1 onion sliced
1 lrg bottle BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Rays)
1 bottle Guinness lager
Combine all spices and rub mixture into all sides of the pork. Lay onion in crock pot..lay pork on top fatty side up. Pour 2/3 bottle BBQ sauce and all of the beer over pork. Cover cook on low 8 hr. (I flip the roast over about and hour before serving) About 1/2 hour before you want to serve ladle most of the liquid off and using 2 forks shred the pork (removing and large pieces of fat and any bone) add the remaining 1/3 bottle of BBQ stir and cover until ready to serve.
Serve on rolls with slaw on the side or (better) on top of the pork!
1 med green cabbage shredded
1 small purple cabbage shredded
1 cup mayo
2-4 tbl cider vinegar (to taste)
2-4 tbl agave nectar or sugar (to taste)
1/4 cup crushed pineapple
salt and pepper to taste
Make slaw 1/2 hour to an hour before serving. toss shredded cabbage together. In a bowl combine all other ingredients and taste...adjust seasonings. Pour over - stir well. Let sit to let cabbage begin to break down ...stir again. Enjoy!
