This is another ridiculously easy crockpot recipe. I mean, it doesn’t get much simpler than putting meat in the crockpot, adding a little red wine vinegar and Liquid Smoke and turning the thing on. The only real work comes in shredding the meat and, I guess, stirring in the barbecue sauce. Really, this is perfect when you just can’t be bothered… but, still want something delicious.
And you can do a lot of different things with the 10 servings you’ll get out of this recipe! Make a sandwich one day… plop the pork on top of a salad another…. or just eat it by itself.
You can take it up a notch by making your own barbecue sauce (there’s a great recipe on Skinnytaste.com). But after a few times making our own sauce, I decided the ingredients in the Trader Joe’s barbecue sauce were close enough to what we were using that it was worth not having to deal with the molasses anymore. (A variation that we make on this recipe is Hot Honey Pork — instead of barbecue sauce, make a mixture that’s 2 parts chicken or beef broth to 1 part honey and 1 part hot sauce. Eliminate the garlic powder, liquid smoke and red wine vinegar and add the sauce to the crockpot at the start. This will, of course, change your macros.)
