The Super Bowl didn’t turn out like I had wished for this Peyton Manning fan but this recipe ALWAYS WILL! It originated from the Food Network Channel’s Money Saving Meals by Sandra Lee and it is always turns out perfectly.
Her version has pickled onions but I generally prefer to serve mine with a crunchy vinegar slaw on top and a couple of kosher pickle slices. It is a great option for tailgates, family get-togethers, or to take to your former Farragut Middle School colleagues for lunch (they loved it!) I always make enough to have leftovers to freeze or use with other recipes like my famous Brunswick Stew!
One major change I have made in this recipe is in the choice of the marmalade. I tried it that way and it was a little too sweet for my taste so now I use a Red Pepper Jelly and it truly makes the dish!makes the dish!
Pulled Pork (Makes approximately 24 Sliders and save half for another dish!)
- 1 (10-pound) bone-in pork shoulder, picnic cut
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 cup red pepper jelly
- Slider Rolls
Place the onions in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker. Place the pork shoulder, fat and skin side up. in the slow cooker. In a medium bowl stir together soy sauce, garlic, salt pepper and orange marmalade.
Pull the pork out of the crockpot and break apart. Pour the leftover broth in the crockpot in a freezer safe bowl (This is a great addition to a soup stock later). Put the meat back in the crockpot along with a little of the broth to moisten.
Mustard BBQ Sauce
- 1/4 cup yellow mustard
- 2 tbsp. minced garlic
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar (store brand)
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/4 cup water (this is my addition because I don’t like it too thick)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk all the ingredients together. Cook for 5 minutes and remove from heat.
