This makes a LOT of pork. I typically freeze the leftovers and they reheat just fine.
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 chopped onions
- 6 minced garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 12 ounces chili sauce (1 small bottle)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 lbs pork shoulder
- Sauté the onions in the oil until soft. Add garlic, chili powder, and pepper and cook another minute or so. Add chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Heat till boiling stirring constantly.
- Put the pork shoulder in the crock-pot and pour the sauce over it. Cover and cook on low 12 hours or on high 6 hours, until pork is basically falling apart. (Longer never hurts.)
- Shred the meat with a pair of forks and return to the pot and keep warm in the sauce. Serve over buns.
We love this recipe, its been a staple for me for a few years now and its very yummy and very easy. I don't use all of the pepper sauce, just a few shakes so I add some more liquids when I put it into the pot. That is my only adjustment though. Recently my mother in law asked for the recipe since she has had it a few times here and liked it so much. That's about the best compliment I can get!
Very easy and very tasty. And it's great for a crowd. I really liked the flavor of this recipe and will defintely be making it again!
