Pulled pork is one of those dishes you can serve all year round. It's perfect for pot lucks or large gatherings because you can feed a crowd without slaving in the kitchen. I came up with this leaner version using boneless pork loin roast and homemade BBQ sauce which gave me complete control of what was added.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lb boneless pork loin roast (center cut, trimmed of all fat)
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Hickory liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup Homemade Kansas City BBQ Sauce

Instructions

  • Place pork in the slow cooker and season with salt, vinegar, garlic powder and liquid smoke.
  • Cover and set to high 6 hours.
  • Remove pork and transfer onto a large dish; reserve all the liquid into a cup and set aside.
  • Shred the pork with two forks and put it back into the slow cooker along with about 3/4 cup of the reserved liquid and the BBQ sauce (for every 3 oz cooked pork, I used 2 tbsp BBQ sauce).
  • Cook on high one more hour.
  • *Nutritional info is for pork only, bread is extra.
