15 servings (serving size: 1/3 cup barbecue and 2 tablespoons coleslaw on each bun)
1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed and cut in half crosswise
1 cup water
1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2 cups packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw
1/3 cup light coleslaw dressing
15 (2-ounce) hamburger buns
How to Make It
Place roast and water in a 4-quart electric slow cooker. Cover with lid; cook on high-heat setting 7 hours or until meat is tender. Drain; discard cooking liquid. Return pork to slow cooker; shred with 2 forks. Stir in barbecue sauce and next 4 ingredients (through pepper). Reduce to low-heat setting; cover and cook 1 hour.
This really was super easy to make. My crock pot trends to cook things faster than the recipe calls for, so I left it on high for 4 hours, switched it to low for 2, then left it on warm after I added the other ingredients. The meat was so tender, I had a hard time getting it out of the pot to drain the cooking liquid. It was just falling apart, which was great! The sandwiches were delicious and I'll definitely add this to my regular rotation of meals.
Great recipe- easy to make, makes a lot of servings, and tastes great! Not for a fancy, formal dinner, but perfect for a casual gathering of friends to watch a game, etc. I made sweet potato fries to go with it. Really great combo.
