I digressed. Back to this weekend. I did not have time to grill out so instead I took advantage of my crock pot and made BBQ Pork Sandwiches. They turned out great! I may not have attended a BBQ but this made up for it. Hooray! I tried a recipe out of the Fix -It - and Forget it Cookbook with just a few changes. I think it worked. The sandwiches were delicious.
BBQ Pork Sandwiches
adapted from Fix-It-and Forget-It (written by Eleanor Larson for Barbecued Beef Sauce)
2 lb Pork Loin
1 large onion diced
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c ketchup
2 T molasses
8 oz can tomato sauce
12 oz beer (I used Dos XX amber)
2 cloves of garlic diced
salt and pepper to taste
Directions: combine all ingredients in crock pot except Pork Loin. After mixed together add the pork loin, prick it a few times with a fork a few times so sauce can penetrate and turn it in sauce. Spoon some additional sauce on top. Cook for 8 hrs. Turn it half way through if possible. If not possible it is okay. Shred the meat with two forks and stir it in sauce. Serve on favorite rolls or buns.
