Favorite thing to cook

I love my crockpot. Once school really gets up and going, I'll be using that thing quite often. So it's no surprise that a lot of  my favorite meals are made in the crockpot.

Here's one of my easiest and yummiest recipes:

Pulled Pork
1 boneless pork roast, rinsed and dried
1 onion, sliced
1-2 cups of apple juice
Seasoning (I use an applewood pork rub)
Favorite bbq sauce (I use Kraft original)

Place sliced onion in the bottom of the crockpot. Place roast on top, fat side up. Season with rub or other seasonings (brown sugar, garlic powder, etc.). Pour in enough apple juice to go about half way up the side. Cook on low all day. Drain off the fat and liquids and shred the pork, removing any visible fat. Add bbq sauce and let it warm up.

I serve this on buns with coleslaw (often broccoli slaw). I like the coleslaw on my sandwich, but most people don't.

Nothing "healthy" about it, but it's really good. Sometimes I save back some of the pork before adding the bbq sauce, and we turn it into another meal like quesadillas or burritos.
