Sunday Dinner Menu: BBQ Pulled Pork

Dinner tonight: pulled pork, Wallaby smashers, garden salad, shaped dinner rolls. See individual posts below.

For the pulled pork I used a roast tenderloin- pork butt is also a pretty popular cut. I slow cook mine in a crock pot. First finely chop 1/2 of a large onion and put around the roast. Make the bbq sauce below (or use your favorite store brand) and marinate overnight. Turn on crockpot and cook meat for 10 hours on low (or 5 hours on high) or until it easily shreds using a fork. Shred meat using two forks and serve over buns, potatoes or whatever you like. YUM.

BBQ Sauce

3/4 cups ketchup

1 cups tomato sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cups red wine vinegar
1/8 cup molasses
4 teaspoons liquid smoke
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together all ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, longer if a thicker sauce is desired. To thin it out, add a bit of water.
