I'm starting the holiday week off with a classic 4th of July meal, BBQ sauce smothered on...well, anything will do, but we will be having pork roast. I found today's recipe on Holidays Central. This the first time I've been on the site, but I will definitely be adding it to my bookmarks.
- 1 boneless pork roast (about 2 to 2.5 pounds
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2/3 cups water
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 12 slider rolls
In the pot of a slow cooker, add olive oil, barbeque sauce, apple cider vinegar, water, brown sugar, mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, onion and garlic. Whisk together until thoroughly combined. Create diagonal lines to score the roast. Place the roast in the slow cooker. Coat the roast rolling it in the sauce. Cover.
Cook in the crockpot on low for 7-8 hours. Alternatively, cook the roast on high for 5-6 hours. The roast is done when it shreds easily with a fork. Shred the meat in the slow cooker pot and use a spoon to coat the pork with the sauce. Toast the slider rolls. Spoon the pork onto buns. Makes 12 sliders.
I'm really excited about this kid-friendly meal. Brother Goose loves sliders because they are perfect for his little hands, while Sister Goose enjoys the meat from my slow cooker because it's juicy and practically melts in her mouth.
