Pulled Pork Sloppy Joes BBQ
I call these pulled pork "sloppies," as they're not really barbecue and not really sloppy Joes. So, they're a kind of hybrid, if you will ... but delicious, if you want to just dive in and not discuss it ;-)
Servings: 6 servings
- 2 pound boneless pork roast (or 2-½ pound bone in)
- 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
- 6 ounce can tomato paste
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- ½ cup molasses
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp ground dried thyme
- 2 Tbsp garlic, chopped
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp dry mustard
Add pork to slow cooker and turn heat to high. Drizzle with the olive oil and cook for 6-8 hours or until it's falling off the bone.
Remove meat from slow cooker and separate out any fat or bone, pulling it into bite-sized pieces as you go.
Return meat to slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Turn heat to low. Cook for another 30 minutes to 1 hour (the longer the better for improved blending of flavors).
Serve by itself or on buns or rolls.Enjoy!
