I love BBQ. Well, I’m from Texas so that’s probably a given. I’ve got so many good memories tied to BBQ’s. Our family reunion was every Fourth of July and my Papaw would dig a pit in the ground and we would have a good old fashioned pit BBQ with pork. ribs, sausage, and brisket. My husband and I love to fire up the grill that we have out by the pool as well. There is something about smokey meat with just a bit of a crispness and some sweet BBQ sauce. One thing I’m not crazy about is standing over a hot grill. (I feel like a total wimp saying that since my elderly grandfather was a trooper turning meat on a grate over an inferno pit BBQ- and it was absolutely delicious!) I came up with this recipe for delicious BBQ with no hot grill required. It’s a Ninja Cooking System Recipe (You can use a slow cooker.) for BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. It’s real deal delicious BBQ without the sweat!
- 1 pork shoulder roast
- crushed garlic paste
- McCormick's Grill Mates Pork Rub
- 1 bottle of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 BBQ sauce (or your favorite)
- Rub the garlic paste and pork rub all over the pork shoulder roast.
- Either in the Ninja Kitchen stove top function or on your own stove, brown the outside of the roast.
- Turn off the stove top function in the Ninja and if you browned the roast on your stove top, add the roast to your slow cooker.
- Pour the entire bottle of BBQ sauce over the roast.
- Cook on low 8 hours.
- When the roast is finished cooking, shred the pork either with a knife and fork or with your fingers.
- Optional: For an extra crispiness you can put the pork in a skillet with some of the BBQ sauce and brown for about 5 minutes.
- Serve with BBQ sauce on Hamburger Buns.
This BBQ is almost easier than falling off a log, but the flavors don’t taste that way. I learned the trick of browning the roast with the seasoning and then browning it in the BBQ sauce after it’s shredded from an episode of Diners Drive In’s and Dives. It adds a wonderful crisp texture to the pulled pork. I grilled some King’s Hawaiian Buns on the griddle pan. Such an easy dinner to get going! The cut with a fork tender pork, the sweet and smokey BBQ sauce is as good as anything I’ve had at a traditional BBQ. If you’re in the mood for some summer (or anytime!) BBQ, but don’t want frizzy hair and raccoon eyes when the grill messes up your hair and makeup try this Ninja Cooking System recipe for BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches. 🙂
