Pull Me Some Pork

December 1, 2015

We enjoyed Emmy’s pulled pork sandwiches so much while in Florida, Jim decided to try making them himself…



Jim first made some BBQ sauce:

Combine 2 c of catsup; 1 c water; 1/2 c apple cider vinegar; 5 T each of white and brown sugar; 1/2 T each of pepper, onion powder and ground mustard; 1 T each of lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Bring all that to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 1 hour and 15 mins.


Put a 4 lb shoulder cut of pork into slow cooker with a tsp of oil. Add a cup of the BBQ sauce and 1/2 cup each of vinegar and chicken broth.  Then add 1/4 cup of brown sugar; a tablespoon each of yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder; a large chopped onion; a couple crushed garlic cloves; and a tsp and a half of thyme. Cook on high for 5-6 hours. Voila!

Serve on a hamburger bun.

They tasted very different than Emmy’s, but were still good!
