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
adapted from Get Off Your Butt and Bake
- 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.
