Here’s an easy recipe if you like shredded pork BBQ sandwiches like I do. I just made it this week. BTW, I love crock pots!
Take a large crock pot, put a layer of onions on the bottom, place a whole pork shoulder on top, cover with another layer of onions. Add some salt, pepper, about 1 cup of white vinegar, and a couple cups of water. Place the lid and cook on low/medium for about 10-12 hours. After cooking before completely cooling, remove the broth (it’s probably great for cooking greens or beans), discarding the onions and fat. Remove all the skin and fat from the pork, the meat should fall off the bones. The skin can actually be fried up a little crispy if you like to chop it up into your meat. The pork will easily shred with two forks.
In a sauce pan, I mixed a few cups of apple cider vinegar, about 1/4 cup or less of lemon juice, some minced onion, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and sugar to taste. Make it as sweet as you want, and simmer it for a fe minutes to get the pepper flakes and sugar infused well.
Put some of the shredded pork in a frying pan with just a little oil, salt and pepper, and a little of the vinegar dressing to moisten, and fry it up nice and hot, browning it just a little. Pile it on a hoagie roll, or onion roll, or your favorite sandwich roll and you can add some more of the vinegar BBQ dressing, or some traditional BBQ sauce if you like.
Let me tell you, this makes some of the cheapest, easiest, and tastiest BBQ pulled pork sandiches I have ever had. You can freeze the leftovers too.
