Slow Cooker BBQ Pork

To switch things up a little bit, we tried this recipe from Kraft.  Obviously it was easy, don't worry that's not always going to be the case, but it was just alright.  I halved the meat since it was for 8 servings, but kept the sauce the same and it still lacked flavor.  The meat itself was very juicy and tender, so if you don't mind doctoring it up a bit then go ahead and try it.  We did use our leftovers for quesadillas with shells and cheese and it was delicious!  Stay tuned for some quick and HEALTHY, yes you read that right, snacks coming soon!  

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork

Ingredients  (modified for 4 servings)
1 pound boneless pork shoulder (mine was a little over)
2 small onion, sliced into rings
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
4 Kaiser rolls
4 slices of cheese (I used Velveeta)

Place meat in slow cooker.  Top with the onions and BBQ sauce.  Cook on low 8-10 hours, or high 4-5 hours.  

After finished, remove meat from slow cooker, discard any excess fat and shred.  Return to slow cooker and stir.  Serve on roll with cheese and onions.  *We put extra BBQ sauce on ours because it was pretty bland.
