SuperBowl 2011

My man is a fan of most any sport.
But he LOVES football.

So, Super Bowl Sunday,
before the sun came up,
I started the meat for the 
BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
we would be having later in the day.

This is one of the easiest things to do 
with a pork loin.
First, season that thing up with a 
generous portion of
Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, and Garlic Powder.

(These are my favorite seasonings, 
but if you have a different preference,
feel free to adjust and alter as you see fit.)

Really show that pork some love.
Rub and massage all those seasonings in.

Then, in a hot pan with melted shortening,

brown (sear) the pork on all sides.
This really adds to the flavor 
(in my humble opinion)

After it is browned, plop it gently into your
Crock Pot and let it cook slowly for at least
6-8 hours on low.

I added chopped onion to the mix
but it's not necessary...

If you're in a hurry, 
you could cook it on high 4-5 hours,
but trust me, slow is much better!

Then, about 30 minutes to an hour 
before time to eat,
open that crock pot and 
with a couple of forks or tongs
"pull" or shred the pork
into small strings of deliciousness!

Leave the juice in there.  Don't drain it off.
As you "pull" the meat, 
the juice will incorporate itself
into the mixture and flavor the pork
while keeping it very moist!

Now, some folks like it plain.
It's seasoned and ready to go at this point,
however, we like to pour BBQ Sauce
into the mixture.
This is absolutely up to your taste.
You can make your own sauce,
(which I do often)
or you can just pour a bottle of your 
favorite store brand in.

Mix well and let sit until
the BBQ sauce warms up.
Put on some sandwich rolls and
enjoy this very tasty pork!

You'll be the hero and nobody
will know how very easy it was.

Don't forget to share!

you are loved
