Recipe: Pulled Pork

This past weekend, I made pulled pork for Jonny's small group. It's a great way to feed a crowd because it's easy, it makes a lot, and there's very little prep. It's also my mom's recipe and really yummy.

Try it out the next time you need to feed a crowd:

For every 3 pounds of pork loin:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce (I've been know, when I'm out of Worcestershire sauce, to use soy sauce instead - adds just the tiniest touch of bite to it, but it's not likely anyone will notice if you don't say anything)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
Stick it in the crockpot on low for about 6-8 hours, depending on how big your pork loin is. When it's done, drain out the liquid and use two forks to "pull" the pork into shreds. Actually, it takes almost no pulling at all - it mostly just falls apart! Be sure to clean off any leftover fat while you're at it.

Mix up some coleslaw, heat some baked beans, and set out barbecue sause and buns and you're good to go. I think it took me about 5 minutes in the morning to mix up the liquid and put the roast in the crockpot, and about 15-20 minutes to do the final prep and lay everything out. Minimal effort for big impact. 

What's your go-to crowd-pleaser meal?
