Super-Easy Barbecue Pulled Pork

Super-Easy Barbecue Pulled Pork is one of the many recipes I used to make when I was using The Sugar Solution Cookbook.  I have diabetes, and this book by Ann Fittante, MS, and RD, with Julia VanTine-Reichardt was great.  It gave you Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack, Dinner, Snack every day; for a full month, and had 14 chapters with recipes.                

Super-Easy Barbecue Pulled Pork Recipe

Super-Easy Barbecue Pulled Pork

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 ½ Lbs. boneless pork loin, trimmed of all visible fat

1 medium onion, chopped (about ½ cup)

2/3 cup ketchup

1 Tbsp. cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. molasses

2 tsp. packed brown sugar

2 tsp. mustard powder (I don’t like mustard, so I didn’t use)

1 ½ tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

¼ tsp. ground black pepper

1 ½ cups lower-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add pork loin and brown, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes.

Add the onion, ketchup, vinegar, molasses, sugar mustard powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper and broth.  Stir the mixture well to combine and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 ½ hours.

Uncover the saucepan and simmer 10 minutes longer, or until the sauce has thickened slightly and the pork is very tender.  Remove from the heat.

Pull the pork into shreds with two forks and serve.
