The Crock-Pot is your friend. In fact, we happen to have 3 of them (don’t ask.) I have no idea where this recipe came from, but it is one of our favorites, and super easy. There’s nothing like smelling your already cooked dinner when you get home from work! Without further ado:
-1-1 1/4 lb. pork loin
-3/4 cup to 1 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
-heaping 1/4 cup brown sugar
-salt and pepper to taste
-Thoroughly coat pork loan with salt and pepper and place in slow cooker.
-In a bowl, mix barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Pour sauce into clow cooker, making sure all sides of loin are covered.
-Cook on low for 8 hours or more. Break up with a fork and serve.
In the pot!
Now, let’s back up and talk sauce. I use this:
This sauce is from a barbecue serving biker bar in Syracuse, NY, near where my Dad grew up. My parents bring it home every year. It’s unbelieveable (and if you don’t believe me, you can order it online.) But let it be stated for the record, next time I made anything requiring barbecue sauce, I am going to try Rhoob’s sauce, per kmslat’s last blog.
Ok, back to the cooking. I got home from work, and sous chef Zack–this guy–
had diced up some onion, tossed it in the crockpot, and gotten some Texas Toast in the oven to make our sammiches. He was working on a little somethin’ else too, but that’s for a later blog, let’s not get sidetracked.
Here’s the final product:
Hmmm, you say, that looks fantastic! But what’s that delicious looking salad? All in due time, my friends.
But seriously, so easy, so good. And the leftovers are amazing!
