While I’m not a huge fan of pork, I’ve always been a huge fan of pulled BBQ pork. Served up with a side of sweet potato fries…yum! Another one of the food blogs that I follow recently posted a recipe for a lightened up version of Kansas City Pulled Pork so I had to give it a shot! I do warn you though, this makes your house smell delicious!
For the pork, place the roast in your slow cooker and cover with vinegar, liquid smoke, garlic powder and salt. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours. When finished, pull the pork out of the pot and place on a large platter to shred. Reserve the liquid.
For the sauce, combine all ingredients in saucepan and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before adding it to your pulled pork or cover tightly and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Shred the pork with 2 forks and then return to the pot with 3/4 cup of the reserved liquid and BBQ sauce. Continue to cook for an additional hour.
