Trim away as much fat from the Pork Loin Roast as you can possibly remove.
Place pork loin in the slow cooker. Combine water, BBQ sauce, and au jus packet. Pour over pork loin.
Cover with the lid, and allow to cook for 8 hours, until it’s fork-tender.
Shred the loin with two forks or slice with a knife. Return to the slow cooker and stir into sauce.
Serve the pork on buns or over grits, rice, or potatoes.
What is pork loin? Well, it is basically a giant boneless pork chop. It can be called by several names: Center-cut pork loin roast, center-cut pork roast, pork center loin roast, pork center cut rib roast, pork loin center cut, pork loin center rib roast, pork loin roast center cut, and pork loin rib half.
Please note that a pork loin and pork tenderloin are NOT the same cut of meat. Tenderloins are thin and small. Pork loins are wide enough to cut steaks pieces from it.
The safe internal pork cooking temperature for fresh pork cuts is 145ºF.
You can cook the pork on HIGH. I will take about 4 hours.
I shredded our pork loin but you can remove it from the slow cooker and slice it if you prefer.
My favorite store-bought BBQ sauces are Sweet Baby Rays, Stubbs, G.Hughes, and Williamson Brothers.
Can BBQ Pork be frozen? Yes! Let the pork cool completely and place in freezer bags. To reheat the pork, thaw and reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop.
