We will be doing some SERIOUS eating! Have fun my friends!


Shredded Apricot Pork Sandwiches

2 medium onions
1 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 boneless pork top loin roast or pork shoulder roast, trimmed of fat
1/4 cup cold water
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
10 to 12 toasted onion or sesame rolls

Combine onions, preserves, brown sugar, bbq sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Place pork roast in Crock-pot. Pour apricot mixture over roast. Cover cook on low 8 to 9 hours.

Transfer pork to cutting board, let cool slightly. Shred pork with 2 forks. Let cooling liquid stand about 5 minutes to allow fat to rise. Skim off fat and discard.

Blend water, cornstarch, ginger, salt and pepper until smooth. Whisk cornstarch mixture into cooking liquid. Cook uncovered on high for 15 to 20 mins or until thickened. Return shredded pork to Crock-pot. Mix well & SERVE

Your pork sandwiches sound super yummy!!

Thanks for the linky love....that dip is so easy and even more yummy!! - when I first made it, our chips kept breaking because it was so thick, so I thinned it down with a little more more broken chips!!
