Pulled Pork

Happy almost the weekend. I am loving football season this year, it seems like Sundays can't come fast enough. Need something delicious for to watch your favorite team or to tailgate like a pro? Enter pulled pork, serve it on sandwiches, rice or broccoli. Or you can just eat it right out of the crock pot. And if you really want to impress your friends, family, significant other, skip the bottle of BBQ sauce and cook up some of your own. It is super easy to make and the whole house smells like deliciousness for the whole day.

Spice Rub:
2 Tbsp of brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of black pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. (that was easy)

Pulled Pork:
2 lb pork tenderloin
Spice rub from above
1 1/2 cups of chicken stock
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar
2 heaping tbsp of tomato paste

Wash the pork and pat dry. Rub with the spice rub all over until the spices are worked into the meat. In a slow cooker, add the chicken stock, vinegar and tomato paste into a slow cooker. Stir to combine. Put pork into the cooker and cover. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

BBQ Sauce:
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
1/2 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar (or other light color variety)
1 heaping tbsp of tomato paste
1/4 cup of molasses
1 tbsp of smoked hot sauce
Salt, Pepper

Heat the tomato sauce and ketchup in a small pot and bring to a boil. Add all of the other ingredients and stir. Reduce to low heat and cook covered for at least 20 minutes and up to 3 hours. The longer you cook it the deeper the flavors will be. Season with salt, pepper and additional hot sauce to taste. Serve and enjoy.

Happy Eating
