Pulled Pork Recipe

If you had the pleasure of attending the Brewer family Christmas party over the weekend, you also got to experience my crock pot pulled pork. I found a great recipe on What's Gaby Cooking?, a food blog that contains tons of delicious recipes for any occasion. Of course, I added my own flare to the recipe as well as doubled it so there would be plenty of leftovers!


Pulled Pork Sliders (doubled...makes 24 sliders):

Ingredients:
2 medium onions, chopped or grated
1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup sweet paprika
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbl black pepper
1 tbl garlic powder
5 lbs pork butt, cut into 2-4 pieces
24 slider buns

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients except the pork butt and the buns in a slow cooker and mix together with a spoon. Add the pieces of pork and cover the slow cooker. Set for 8 hours on low.

After 8 hours, using 2 forks, shred the pork and remove the pork with the remaining sauce into a large bowl. Toast the slider buns and add some of the pulled pork to each bun.
