Well, Smockity Frocks is holding another "What's In Your CrockPot?" carnival and I'm so glad. We use our crockpot more and more around here. It makes dinner time so much easier on everyone! We've discovered pulled pork and how just a little goes a long way. So I like to refer to it as pulled and stretched pork! Not to mention it is super easy and so yummy!
Pulled And Stretched Pork
Piece of pork loin or boneless pork chops (thick cut)
-the amount of pork is up to you and the size of your family. I have served my family of 5 with an inch cut of whole pork loin.
favorite BBQ sauce
black beans (optional)
Place pork in crock pot with sliced onions. I usually use one whole onion, but you can use less or more depending on your amount of pork. Pour BBQ sauce over pork and onions, enough to cover bottom of crock pot. Add about 1/2 cup of water and I like to add 1 TB of vinegar. I was raised mostly on the East coast and vinegar and pork BBQ go hand and hand.
Cook on low for 6 hours. In the last 30 minutes you can add a couple cans of black beans. This is a wonderful way to stretch the meal if you don't have that much meat.
We like to serve on tortillas with grated cheese and some sour cream. We've also had it on yeast rolls.
