Easy Peasy

Sometimes things just need to be easy, well maybe easy and delicious!
Here is a good one--everyone loves it, winter or summer.  Cheap, easy, and so good!

Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches
4-5 pound pork shoulder roast, bone in (I like to buy them when they are 99cents a pound-score!)
mustard powder, S&P, 2 cloves garlic, any other of your favourite seasoning you might want to add
1 large onion chopped fine
1 bottle BBQ Sauce, my favourite for this recipe is Diana Sauce Original.

Cut off skin and as much fat as possible from the pork roast.  Season the meat with the mustard powder and S&P.  Place it in the crock pot with the 2 cloves of crushed garlic. Cook on high 3-5 hours or until easily pulled apart with a fork. (you will end up with  some liquid-read: meat juice- in the crockpot)

Using 2 forks shred pork (discarding the bone and any fat that may still be on the meat). **
Add the onion, the shredded meat and 1/2 the bottle of  BBQ sauce to the liquid in the crockpot.  Mix well, add more BBQ sauce if it isn't saucy enough. Cook on high for another 2-3 hours or more. (you can't over cook this baby...)  Serve on crusty buns with some Coleslaw on the side.

** if you want to cook until this point and put in the fridge to finish cooking the next day--it is an easy way to save some time on a busy day.
..also, this recipe freezes well--so make some extra and put it away for another day!
