{Crock Pot} Pulled Pork with Carolina BBQ Sauce

July 08, 2013

My oldest daughter is a total foodie. She loves food..will try just about anything. There are only three food related item that are forbidden to touch her plate, Hawaiian rolls, re fried beans and anything made with cornbread.  I was a big trouble when she found out re fried beans mysteriously made their way into the Oven Tacos (they were always in there, it just took her about 6 different times before she noticed them ;)  She also had previously not been a fan of BBQ.  This is weird, apparently, genetic thing linked to my husband in our family. But, a new BBQ place opened in town and on a recent visit there, my little girl discovered the joy of Carolina BBQ.  If you are unfamiliar, Carolina BBQ is a vinegar/mustard based sauce, not a tomato based, like several bottled varieties are..and what is usually located in my fridge.


She was in love and was wanting to return several times to dig in.  However, it was much easier just to make it at home.


Of course, the crock pot was my first choice for the pork.  It turned out perfectly after cooking low on 8 hours.  I barely need to shred it..it just fell apart.  Yum.  The BBQ sauce was delicious too.  We have our pork/sauce separate around here (the whole genetic thing remember), but,you can surely mix them together if you desire.  Don't forget to serve it with cole slaw..I think that's a law somewhere, isn't it?

{for the sauce, add/subtract ingredients to your liking of heat, we took it easy on the chili powder and omitted cayenne}
