Pull-Apart Pork Roast

It's been way too long since I've brought you a crockpot recipe!  The past year brought some interesting new challenges that changed our family's lives forever and forced us to put some things on the back burner for a while.  Now that life has settled down a little, it's time to get back to the things we love -- especially crockpot cooking. 

This recipe is very much like some crockpot ribs I made for you a while back, but I wanted to show you that the same (or very similar) recipe can work for multiple things.  This pull-apart pork roast turned out better than any roast I've ever made.  It was very tender, juicy, and easy to pull apart to eat -- no knife needed.  My kids especially appreciate that!

Pull-Apart Pork Roast

3lb pork roast (or close to that size)
1 packet onion soup mix
BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's this time)
1 pint broth (I used homemade turkey stock)

Put the pork into the crockpot.  I had to cut mine in half and put the two pieces in side-by-side so it would fit.

Sprinkle onion soup mix on the meat, followed by a generous drizzle of BBQ sauce over the top.  Pour some broth into the crockpot just to be sure your meat roasts without getting dry, but don't completely cover the meat with liquid.  Natural meat juices will come out and add more liquid to the mix.

Cook on LOW for around 8 hours.  Don't lift the lid to check on it until at least 6 hours have passed.  This is a good recipe to prepare in the morning and then leave for the day.  When you get home in the afternoon, your house will smell heavenly and dinner is nearly done.  We served this with baked potatoes and a vegetable.  Enjoy!
