Pulled pork sandwiches
The other day I made some pulled pork out of a pork butt roast. It was about 6 pounds and included the bone.
Have you ever heard of the mysterious pork butt gland? Sounds gross, doesn't it?
I had already purchased the meat and was searching how to cook it in the slow cooker when I ran across this pork butt gland article.
Well, I assume I removed the gland. I cut out every thing that was not meat and then some.
I sprinkled the meat with some garlic powder and onion powder.
Then I poured about 2 cups of water in the slow cooker and set it on low.
After about 8 hours, the meat was done.
I heard a good way to shred meat is to use the kitchen mixer.
Oh my! It worked like a charm!
I mixed in a bottle of BBQ sauce.
Then I returned the whole thing to the slow cooker and set it on warm.
I tried and tried to keep the boys out of it 'til supper. :)
Served it on homemade buns. You can find the recipe for homemade buns here.
It was very tasty!!
Next time I will use a different cut of pork, though.
