Last friday was my Mother-in-law's birthday, so on Saturday we had them along with brother and sister-in-law over for dinner, (the kids came too). I made this, and it was delicous. You know when you make something that you know is good, but you just don't remember how good it was. Well this was omg good.
This recipe makes alot, but it would be simple to cut it down. The best part is I put it in the crock pot, though you could do it in the oven if you would rather, I am not sure why though.
7 pound pork roast (I used a shoulder cut)
1 large onion chopped
1 chipolte pepper in adobe sauce chopped
3 garlic cloves minced in garlic press
3 cups homemade honey bbq sauce or your favorite brand
In a mixing bowl put in onion, pepper, garlic and bbq sauce, mix together. In your crock pot put in your roast, and then pour mixture on top. Put on the lid and set on low for 10 hours. If you can half way through cooking turn the roast over. It just insures that all the flavors are melded in the pork.
I was a bit late getting it started, so mine cooked on low for 6 hours, then I turned it up to high for another 2 hours. It was perfectly fine. (this is when getting up for your run would be a good idea instead of hitting snooze)
About 30-45 minutes before you are ready to serve take out the roast and set aside for a minute. Take out half the sauce in the cooker and in a sauce pan on high heat, boil sauce. While the sauce is cooking down, take two forks shred the meat. If it has cooked long enough it should practicallly fall apart for you. When you are done with that return the meat to the crock pot and then pour in the sauce that has cooked down slightly. Mix around until it is all covered with sauce. Leave the crock pot on high until ready to eat. This will help the sauce to cook down even more.
I served mine on tortillas, but it would be great for sandwiches or just on a pile of mashed potatoes.
