Pulled pork in the crock pot, fast, easy to make first thing in the morning, and done when you’re ready to eat.
Do you have a busy day? You’re probably busy every day, but do you have that one super busy day? This semester, ours is Tuesday. We pack school in in the morning and we’re out of the house for most of the rest of the day. We don’t get home until right at supper time (or later). Pulled pork has become my favorite Tuesday meal (so much better than picking a pizza up for the gluten eaters and then watching them while I eat my banana). Served on a gluten free roll with some fruit or a salad on the side, it’s an “instant” meal when we walk in the door, and it only takes 2 minutes to put together in the crock pot in the morning. Because, seriously, when you have a busy day, you don’t really want to spend an extra hour in the morning making a complicated crock pot meal. I only use mild spices and I don’t cook the roast with bbq sauce. I find that bbq sauce loses its flavor in the crock pot, and I have a five year old who won’t eat things with sauce. Not even amazing sauce.
My crock pot seems to cook cool, so I always cook pork roast on high. The crock pot keeps it moist. The cooking times are the standard crock pot cooking times, but they can vary based on your crock pot and the size of your roast. I usually buy pork loin on sale, but this will work with any boneless pork roast.
Looking for the rolls in the picture? I’ve been making my own gluten free artisan bread from the recipes in Gluten Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. You can find a great gluten free roll recipe there. You can read my review about the book by clicking here.
