Here’s a great go-to dinner idea. It’s great for (nearly) effortlessly feeding your family or a crowd. So easy, I’m ashamed of myself (You Can’t Do That on Television [0:48 sec]? Anyone?).
Take a 3 lb pork roast (I’ve used pork loin, pork tenderloin, or the best yet, Boston Butt pork shoulder). Put in crock-pot on low for 8 hours. Remove and reserve juices (I use a turkey baster for this). Shred meat with two forks, removing any bones. Add one bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (we love Sweet Baby Ray’s-large Sam’s Club size bottle) and stir into shredded pork. Add back meat juices until desired consistency (I actually use the meat juices to rinse the BBQ sauce bottle) and stir. Serve on hamburger rolls. Adding sliced pickles knocks it out of the park, IMHO.
It also freezes very well, which is important because it makes A LOT. I’ve also been entertaining the idea of making a BBQ pizza with it, but haven’t yet. Also been meaning to try replacing the pork with chicken.
