As I mentioned earlier in the week, October is National Pork Month. And with the holidays looming, pork is the perfect addition to any get together.
My favorite thing to make with pork is barbecue. It’s insanely easy, incredibly yummy and can feed a lot of people. Plus, it’s adaptable. People are very particular with what style of barbecue they like, so you can buy whatever sauce you want – vinegar based, tomato based, you name it.
I prefer South Carolina barbecue (the Columbia, SC version), which has a mustard based sauce. It’s what my mother and grandmother have always made, so I think it might be in my blood.
Here’s what you’ll need to make my version.
1 Boneless Pork Tenderloin or Roast
Apple Cider Vinegar
Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce (I prefer Maurices but I didn’t have any)
Put 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup vinegar in the bottom of the crock pot. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the pork to your liking and put into the crock pot. Turn on low for 6-8 hours (I’ve also done it on high for 4-5 hours.) Once the pork is cooked, drain the excess liquid and shred the pork. Then add the barbecue sauce and stir well.
Serve on bun with pickles or slaw.
We’ve served this at birthday parties, holiday parties and for sports games. It will easily become one of your go-to recipes for sure.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else on the campaign is making for their recipes. And congratulations to Jessica from A B Keeps Us Honest for winning the $50 Costco Cash Card.
