I love Pulled Pork and I’ve been craving it for weeks, but I can’t find my recipe. Yes, ridiculously organized me can’t find something. It’s not that I don’t know where it is, it’s that I don’t feel like digging through the boxes to find my recipe folders. I found my recipe in a cooking magazine (either Rachael Ray’s magazine or the Food Network magazine) a few years ago, and we really do like it. I’ve looked all over Pinterest, trying to find a close approximation to my recipe, but I haven’t been able to locate the right one. However, the craving got to be too much, and I resorted to using what promised to be a simple yet delicious crock pot version…
The recipe was as easy as the pin promised. I gathered the ingredients and put it together in less than 10 minutes before I left for work. It calls for 1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce, 4 pounds of boneless pork riblets (I used boneless country style ribs), 3/4 brown sugar (this is optional, but my other recipe calls for it, so I used it), 1 teaspoon dry mustard, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.
You dump half the bottle of BBQ sauce in the crock pot, then add the meat.
Next, you add the rest of the BBQ sauce, the mustard, the garlic powder, and the brown sugar.
I stirred everything around to get the meat completely coated, and set it on low to cook for 8 hours. (The recipe said to cook it on high for 4 hours, but I was going to be gone longer than that, so I adjusted my cooking time.) When I got home from work, I used tongs to shred the pork and served the sandwiches on soft buns.
My dinner guests really enjoyed them, but I still like my original recipe better. Guess I better get cracking with the renovations, so I can finally unpack the remaining boxes and find the stuff I’m still missing.
