Easy BBQ Pork

Okay - so this is a "stretch" to call it a recipe, but it's about as easy as a meal can be. Actually it could be several meals...

Boneless pork loin is one of my favorite cuts of meat. Good flavor, fairly healthy, and can be used in so many different ways. For this, simply take 1/2 a loin (I usually cut off excess fat), a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce, and a can of cola. Throw them all together in a crock pot on low for 7-9 hours. About half way through, start breaking up the meat and shredding it with a couple of forks. Stir occasionally to braise evenly in sauce.

Serve it on a hamburger bun/kaiser roll, over rice, or potatoes (mashed or baked). This freezes really well and can be made well ahead of time. Great for parties, picnic, family meals, and a quick go-to meal. One batch usually provides about 3 meals for us.

Costs: $8.20
Pork $7 (Costco $14 full loin)
BBQ Sauce $.90 (Aldi's)
Cola $.30 (Meijer)
