Carolina Crock Pork - BBQ

We love BBQ sandwiches at our house!  I bet you do, too!

Here is a great recipe we use over and over.  I forgot to 
take a picture for this blog until after we had eaten it 
all so I took this picture off the internet.  But this is what
it looks like.  Basically, in the morning, I sear a pork loin 
roast in olive oil until it looks great and everyone in the 
house has asked, "What's cooking?"  Then I put it in the
crock pot with all the added ingredients and plug it in 
on the side porch where it cooks til about 4 pm.
(I have to set it outside on the porch because it  just
smells too good to have in the house.) Meanwhile,
go shopping! :-)

Carolina Crock Pork

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pounds pork loin roast
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup tomato paste (I use ketchup)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons cider vinegar 

   In a skillet, heat the olive oil and
brown the pork roast on all sides.
Place in a crock pot with remaining
ingredients.  Cook on high for 5 to7
hours or on low for 8 to 9 hours,
depending on the type of slow
cooker you have. When done, shred
with two forks and serve with crock
pot juices.

  1. I used to make this with a Boston butt and you would put it with barbecue sauce and cook it all day. Then you drained it and pulled the meat apart and added more sauce and heated it up--this way a lot of the fat would be poured out.It always came out delicious.

  2. This sounds great. Thanks for the recipe, will have to give it a try. Happy Easter to you and your family. Be Safe.
