Healthier Crock Pot BBQ Pork {giveaway}

My husband will be the first one to tell you that before I met him I didn’t touch pork or beef. It’s just how I grew up! Well, that was until I ate at his parent’s house. It was meat every night and I would stay clear of everything but the chicken and fish. That is, until I tried his dad’s bbq. I always made an exception for a good bbq sandwich!

Well, the thought of making my own seemed daunting and I didn’t know if you could even make it healthier. I’m so glad there’s google and I’m so glad that Gina posted a healthier way to make pulled pork! Also, it’s a good thing we just got a Whole Foods because that’s exactly where I sent my husband to get the organic pork that we would turn into this amazing sandwich.

Personalized CrockPot-1914I will warn you, the house will smell AH-mazing all day long, making you want to dive into a bbq pork sandwich at 8am…but don’t. The wait is worth it! It takes all of 2.51 minutes to shred the pork because it’s so tender and just falls apart. Yay!

Personalized CrockPotAny who, how cute is this Crock-Pot?!?

It’s the new way to personalize your Crock-Pot, whether it be with your favorite sports teams or your favorite photographs! I just love mine! If you’d like one like it, you can create your own one right here!

Either way, good food and a pretty pot is game in my book! 😀

Healthier Crock Pot BBQ Pork

adapted from Skinny Taste

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lb center cut boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of all fat
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon BBQ seasoning and rub (I used Bone Suckin’ Sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup bbq sauce (I used Bull’s Eye)
  • 1/2 cup water

How-To

  1. Place the pork in the pot, sprinkling with the vinegar, seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
  2. Cook in the crock pot on high for 6 hours.
  3. Remove the pork from the crock pot and shred with two forks. Leave the liquid in the crock pot that remains (I had about 1/2 cup of liquid). 
  4. Put the shredded pork back into the crock pot, with the bbq sauce and the water. Stir. With the water, you’ll want a total of 1 cup of liquid, so if you had more remaining liquid, then add less water.
  5. Cook in the crock pot for 1 hour on high.
  6. Serve warm!

  1. A recipe called Chicken Parisienne that came in the little cookbook that came with the first Crock Pot I ever bought–a small 2 quart one. I still have that Crock Pot AND the cookbook!!

  2. I love making pot roast in the crockpot. Although i have to say my cat gets quite annoying after smelling the cooking meat for so many hours.

  3. We use our Crockpot daily but I would have to say that it’s a toss up between shredded beef, shredded chicken or pulled pork. It’s hard to choose because they have all turned out exceptionally tasty. 🙂

  4. I don’t have a favorite thing to make in my crock pot because I don’t own one, actually I’ve never owned one! If I won one I would love to make this pulled pork, also chicken soup, chili, fondue and a whole mess of other recipes that I would go through until I found my favorite!

  5. my favorite crock pot recipe is a tough question – bbq boston butt (which turns into pulled pork the next day – magic), chicken parmesan, a baked pork chop with apples & cranberry stuffing, chili, cola ham…..ok, stopping now, i’m getting hungry!!
