We had this shredded crockpot BBQ pork for dinner last night and it was delicious. My one year old inhaled a plate while I was taking this photo. When I was finished taking pics, I got to sit down with my family and eat this styled plate myself – lucky me!
This idea for this recipe started when boneless pork roasts were buy one, get one free at the grocery store last week. I bought six and turned them into crockpot freezer meals and I knew one of them had to be a BBQ pork recipe. The meat cooks down and shreds and melts in your mouth. YUM.
What’s so great about this recipe?
- It’s simple and delicious!
- You can stock up when pork is on sale and save lots of money.
- All you have to do is combine the ingredients in your crockpot and turn it on.
We rely on our crockpot for dinner 3-6 nights/week. There are a ton of easy and healthy recipes and I love not having to stress about cooking. Someday I’ll get back into more complicated recipes, but while my kids are little I’m going to embrace this season of life and do whatever it takes to get by.
