This makes one heck-of-a mmmmm...yummy BBQ pork sandwich! We like our BBQ sauce a bit more on the sweet side, so I added a 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the sauce. Instead of Step #6 - draining the excess liquid, I thickened the sauce on the stove using Gold Medal Wondra, a quick mixing fine flour. I returned the shredded pork to the bbq sauce and kept warm 'till Suppertime, served with corn on the cob, french fries, and salad. Try Crockpot Peach Cake Dessert #38331 with Breyers Peach Ice Cream. Our Company loved it!
First BBQ recipe that the whole family loves! I used celery salt since I didn't have celery on hand and onion powder instead of onion so my children wouldn't turn their noses up at the onion pieces.
I've made this (as written) many, many times over the past 2 years and I love it! The taste is fantastic and I've recommended this recipe to many friends too. Thanks so much for posting.
OMG this was my first time making anything like this and it was AMAZEBALLS. No changes except put Red Wine Vinegar insstead of reg vinegar. SO GOOD. We will definitely be making this a lot - I took the meat out and shredded it and added a little flour to thicken the liquids and added the meat back and it was perfect. yum!!!
so good with roasted sweet potatoes & slaw! thanks for posting, will DEFINITELY make again...
Made and shared with others. Now there asking me to make more. One guy had even got his appetite back from the meds that he was on while eating and had seconds. Insted of adding 1 cup water I [Because I wanted to use up] added 3-5 cups more celery and onion used CIDER vineger and HICKERY Salt. VERY GOOD!!!!!
We loved it. I was hesitant about the chili powder but no taste of it at all. I decreased the water(1/2 cup) as recommended. I will decrease it even more next time. There is no thickness to the sauce so I would thicken it if you want a thicker consistency.
YUM! Just made this earlier for dinner. It was great. Smelled so good all day. I omitted several items (celery, onion, chili powder) that I didn't have, but it was still great. I'd probably cut down on the water some, since the pork creates some juice of its own. My only issue was the amount of liquid... Even with using a slotted serving spoon, our buns were soggy. Either way.. I'm writing this one down in my cookbook!
Super easy to make. Great taste too. I substitute vinegar with rice vinegar, and used only 3/4 cup BBQ and Ketchup because I only have 3 pound meat. Still turned out LOTS of sauce. Have to scoop out some so the pork doesn't soak in it too much. Flavor wise, definately taste better after you shread it and put it back in the sauce.
