Barbecue Pork Sandwiches

Here's a quick recipe that can feed a lot of people! Not only that but you throw it all in the crock-pot and let it cook all day.  We have it a lot with company because then you can spend time with your visitors instead of cooking all day!  Also, it's sweet so kids love it.  Mine eat without the bun a lot.  It's also a great contribution for potlucks because one pot goes a long way.  I usually buy the big 2-pack pork roast at Smith's, double the recipe and then freeze half after I've cooked it. The frozen meat is great for a night where you don't have time to cook or if you need a meal to take to a friend. Enjoy!

Barbecue Pork Sandwiches
3-4 lb. pork roast  
1 cup barbecue sauce (I LOVE Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/4 cup honey
3 T. dried minced onion
Sandwich rolls or hamburger buns
Pepperjack or provolone slices (optional)

Place pork roast in a large crock pot.  In a small bowl combine barbecue sauce, honey and minced onion.  Pour sauce over roast.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  (meat will be cooked at 6 but is easiest to shred at about 8 hours).  When roast is ready, shred  using forks or use you kitchen-aid*.  Do not discard juices. After shredding let sit in crock pot for 5 minutes to allow meat to re-absorb sauce. Serve on sandwich rolls with cheese if desired. Enjoy!
