BBQ Pork Sammies

With the warm weather we've been having, I really didn't want to use the oven, or stove. So my trusty crock pot came to the rescue. Unfortunately it was also the end of my crock pot, since I dropped it in the sink, while washing it, after dinner :(. If I can find another stoneware insert that will fit, I'll be one happy Mama. Anyway..... I had/ have some pork loin in the freezer, so I took out a 2 lb piece and threw it in the crock to make BBQ pulled pork. I used the same recipe that I use for BBQ chicken and it was amazing. This is another Cooking for your Family find. I tried it 2 yrs ago and it's one of my favorites. Tender, sweet and tangy sauce coats the meat, for a scrumptious BBQ sandwich.


Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken or Pork

3-4 chicken breasts or 2 lb pork loin (can be frozen)
2 C ketchup
4 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix all ingredients (except chicken) in crock-pot. Add the chicken, coating each piece in sauce. Cook on high 4 hours. Remove chicken and shred/pull with forks. Return to pot and stir in sauce to coat. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato, cheese and onion.
**Leftovers can be frozen and re-heated for sandwiches, or used to make BBQ chicken pizza (put on a pizza crust, top with favorite cheeses, onions, etc.) or used to make BBQ chicken burritos (put on tortillas, add refried beans, cheeses, etc.)
Cindy's notes: I like to add 1/4-1/2 C of our favorite BBQ sauce, to add smokiness.

What kind of crock pot do you have? If my insert will fit you can have it. My crock pot doesn't work very well (mechanically) so I've been thinking about getting a new one. The ceramic part is just fine. I'll try to remember to bring it to dinner tomorrow night so you can look at it and see if it will work.

I believe it's a 6.5 qt oval slow cooker. I could be a little off on the size (without looking at it to be sure). But it is oval.
