Barbeque Pork (Family)
4 lb Pork Butt or Shoulder Roast;
2 lg Spanish onions; (sweet)
1 lg Bottle Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce
-OR KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
1 c Ginger Ale (or Coke)
4 pk Sandwich buns (8 per pkg.)
Cut onions in half lengthwise, slice in 1/4" slices, halve the slices and
separate into rings. Trim all possible fat from roast and sprinkle with
garlic salt and seasoned pepper. Place half the onions in crockpot, put in
roast and top with rest of onions. Pour 1 cup of soda over all, cover and
cook on LOW for 10 to 12 hours, or overnight until pork can be easily
shredded with two forks.
Remove pork from pot, shred in a bowl, removing all possible fat. Remove
onions with slotted spoon and add to bowl. Discard juice in pot. Return
onions and pork to pot, add BBQ sauce to all and mix. Continue to cook on
LOW for 5 to 6 hours, adding more BBQ sauce as needed. Serve as sandwiches
in buns. (I use Pepperidge Fram Sandwich rolls).
Leftovers may be cooled, made into sandwiches, wrapped in heavy plastic
wrap and frozen individually for later use. (I store them in the sandwich
roll bags, 8 to a bag, sealed with the tab that came with the bag). They
keep well and may be unwrapped, rewrapped in paper towels and heated in a
microwave at 50% for a few minutes.
NOTE: Idea from Laurie Robinson (SNMJ29D) 01/14/93: "I made up a batch of
BBQ pork but did not have enough rolls to freeze it with. I put globs of it
on cookie sheets and froze them for a day. Then I put the globs into zip
lock baggies and popped them in the freezer. I have used a glob on a baked
potato for lunch (terrific), and sent some to work with my hubby with fresh
rolls for the microwave. These globs take very little space in the freezer
and are very convenient for use." Wonderful idea!
