BBQ Pork Sandwiches: Slow Cooker $10 Meal

I’ve partnered with The Pork Council this year to share delicious pork recipes and money saving tips. All opinions are my own. 

Did I tell you about the time I made dinner for eighty people? It isn’t something I do every day, but when my husband was promoted a few years back I decided that I should cater the meal myself. I don’t know if I’ll ever attempt that again, but I did learn that BBQ pork in the crock pot is one of the easiest make ahead meals out there and it is very inexpensive!

When I’m cooking for a big group (either eight or eighty) I like to find inexpensive but delicious options and pork is a great choice.

I crave BBQ the entire summer. Whether it is chops, ribs, or roasts I want it covered in BBQ sauce! On busy summer days I turn to my go-to kitchen tool the crock pot! I love starting dinner before breakfast and then only spending a few minutes in the evening getting everything together.

Not only is this crock pot recipe easy, everyone loves it! A few weeks ago I had a delicious BBQ pork sandwich at a restaurant and couldn’t wait to replicate it at home. Even if you aren’t a fan of coleslaw try it! It was amazing!

Pork is getting a makeover this summer so look for these name changes in the meat case.

  • Porterhouse Pork Chop (Previous name: Loin Chop)
  • Ribeye Pork Chop, Bone-In (Previous name: Rib Chop Center)
