I made Tangy Pulled Pork but had to change a few things due to lack of ingredients at my place. The changes resulted in something very similar that I had in Tennessee during a vacation there. The sauce is very thin. If you want to thicken it, just put some Wondra in at the end (see directions).

  1. Put ketchup, tomato sauce, water, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, chili powder and mustard in pot. Bring to a boil Add roast.
  2. Lower heat. Cover and simmer for 3 hours or until meat is very tender. Remove meat; shred with two forks. Put meat back in pot.
  3. Thicken with a little Wondra if desired. Remove meat from pot with slotted spoon and serve on buns.

This is now my favorite pulled pork recipe! I usually make my pulled pork in a crock pot by just pouring barbecue sauce on the pork and cooking for 6-8 hours. It may be a little easier, but your recipe blew that one out of the water! So, the extra time to throw the ingredients together in a pot is well worth it ( I followed your recipe exactly)! Plus the 3 hour time savings is even better!

The pulled pork was ready in 3 hours as stated. I think the sandwich tasted better after I added some Kosher salt and dill pickles. I plan on thickening this up when I rewarm it tomorrow. I'll make this again, thanks for posting. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
