BBQ Pork Loin


Crock-pot meals are some of my favorite weeknight meals.  They are quick, easy and ready when I get home from work.  This recipe is no exception.  It requires minimal prep work (browning the pork) and makes a great dinner.  I served the BBQ pork with our favorite Cheesy Potato Casserole.  I think some cheesy grits would be good too.  This makes a lot of pork, but luckily it is good reheated the next day.  Try it on a sandwich bun for lunch!



BBQ Pork Loin
Get Off Your Butt and Bake
(Printable Recipe)


1 large Pork Loin (mine was 2 lb)
1 package of Au jus
1 Cup of your favorite BBQ Sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
Garlic powder, onion powder to taste

Trim away as much fat from the Pork Loin Roast as you can possibly remove. In a large skillet or dutch oven, brown the loin on both sides. Season well with Salt, Pepper, onion and garlic powder.

Place pork loin in the slow Cooker. Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup BBQ sauce and Au Jus packet. Pour over pork loin. Add additional water to the pot, leaving 2 inches of the roast uncovered.

Cover with the lid, and allow to cook until it’s fork tender (about 8 hours) Slice meat and return to slow cooker to simmer in juices for approximately 30 minutes - or just slice and eat! Top with more BBQ sauce if desired.

  3. that looks really good! So do you leave your crock pot on all day, even if you arent there? Im so paranoid to try that but sure would be nice to come home from work with dinner already done!

  6. I don't use my crockpot for cooking meals, only for herbal chinese drinks. Looking at your pork loin, I should really venture more into crockpot cooking!

  7. I'm a huge fan of crock pot recipes. I don't use it as much as I did when I was working, but now I find myself collecting recipes like this for my daughter-in-law who works full time and has a 7 month old baby. She loves pork loin recipes.

  8. I really need to use my crock pots more often but I usually use my dutch oven instead. The down side is that my dutch oven won't cook by itself, right?

  9. I've got three different sized crock pots and need to get them out more often. I agree, love to use them. The post looks great Stephanie.

  10. Looks delicious, I'm putting it in the crockpot right now! And if I have all the ingredients, I will be making the cheesy potatoes as well - yum!!

    With a 2 yr old and a constantly breastfeeding 5 week old, the crockpot is my best friend so we can eat at home vs picking up fast food!!
