I recently had my friend Kinnon over for dinner and I wanted to make something that would allow me to actually visit with her instead of rushing around in the kitchen.
So I thought why not break out the Slow Cooker
I decided to take a Kraft Canada Pulled Pork recipe and make it slightly healthier. It is also incredibly economical, coming out to about $2.00 a head for the sandwiches. Since it serves 12 it would be great for a crowd.
Here’s the recipe, try it for yourself!
Slow Cooker Orange-BBQ Pulled Sandwiches
Prep: 10 min Total: 8 hours and 10 min
1 cup Kraft Calorie Wise BarBQ Sauce
1/4 cup Kraft Pure Orange Marmalade (I used PC 50% more fruit brand)
1 boneless pork shoulder (3lb/1.35kg)
1/2 cup low fat PC mayonnaise
12 sandwich rolls split, toasted (I used a multi-grain variety)
Mix barbecue sauce and marmalade. Place meat in slow cooker; top with barbecue sauce mixture. Cover with lid.
Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (or on High for 4 to 6 hours). Remove meat from slow cooker; cut into small pieces or shred with fork (I did this in a big roasting pan). Return meat to slow cooker; stir until meat is evenly coated with the barbecue sauce mixture.
Spread dressing onto the sides of the rolls. Fill rolls evenly with meat mixture.
Makes 12 servings or 1 sandwich each.
If you don’t use all the pulled pork in the sandwiches you can freeze it. You could also use it in other ways. I made pulled pork quesadillas!
