Slow-Simmered Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  • 1 2 1/2 - 3  pound  pork sirloin roast or boneless pork shoulder roast
  •  Salt
  •  Black pepper
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 3  tablespoons  cider vinegar
  • 2  tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin or chili powder
  • 1  recipe  Homemade BBQ Sauce or 3-1/2 cups purchased barbecue sauce
  • 10  kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Season meat with salt and pepper. In a small bowl stir together the water, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and cumin. Pour over meat in slow cooker.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

Stir in 2 cups of Homemade BBQ Sauce or purchased barbecue sauce. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting; cover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes or until heated through. Serve meat mixture in rolls. Pass remaining Homemade BBQ Sauce or purchased barbecue sauce.
