I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.
When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.
*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches (bakinglikebetty)
2-3 lb pork shoulder/pork butt
½ medium onion, thinly sliced
½ c ketchup
1/3 c apple cider vinegar
¼ c brown sugar
¼ c (4 Tbsp) tomato paste*
1½ Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1½ Tbsp mustard
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
3/8 c water
1 (18 oz) bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
Soft sandwich rolls (Use Cheri Yorgason’s)
Place onion on the bottom of a slow cooker with pork shoulder, trimmed of any obvious excess fat, on top of the onions. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients (except Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce) to form the barbecue sauce. Pour sauce over the pork until well covered. Cook over low heat for about 10 hours (or high heat for 5 hrs). Remove pork to a large bowl and shred with two forks. Discard any liquid from the slow cooker and transfer meat back in. Pour in BBQ sauce and give a good stir. Let cook for an hour on low before serving. Pulled pork can be held on the “warm” setting in the slow cooker for serving. Serve on soft sandwich rolls, topped with extra barbecue sauce. Serves 6.
*1 ice cube of tomato paste = 1½ Tbsp; really full = 2 Tbsp (10 Tbsp in 6 oz can)
