I love using my slow cooker. Most of the time I just throw everything in and turn it on. This is one of those recipes. I prefer to make my own BBQ Sauce. It takes a bit more time but it's so much tastier!
Pulled Pork with Homemade BBQ Sauce
14 ounces beef broth (or homemade veggie broth)
3 pounds boneless pork ribs (or Boston Butt roast)
18 ounces bottle barbeque sauce (or Homemade)
Pour can of beef broth into slow cooker, and add boneless pork ribs. Cook on High heat for 4 hours, or until meat shreds easily. Remove meat, and shred with two forks. It will seem that it's not working right away, but it will.
Place pork back into slow cooker and add BBQ Sauce.
DIY BBQ Sauce
Maple BBQ Sauce
2 teaspoons grapeseed or olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup reduced-sodium ketchup,
1/2 cup Southern Comfort liqueur, or apple juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, or reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Tabasco
5 cloves garlic, minced
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add ketchup, Southern Comfort (or apple juice), maple syrup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce), hot sauce and garlic and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.)
