BBQ Pulled Pork

This is a great recipe for Pulled Pork Sliders, Sandwiches or Fajita’s the recipe I originally found on Betty Crockers website was actually for Fajita’s, but I’m serving it over Mexican Pasta that I have, it’s basically just very thin pasta.


1 pork boneless loin roast, (2 1/2 pounds), trimmed on fat
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 cups barbecue sauce (I made my own homemade sauce see below for recipe)
3/4 cup Old El Paso® Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 bag (1 pound) frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions
1/2 teaspoon salt


Place pork in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. Place onion on top. Mix barbecue sauce, salsa, chili powder and cumin in small bowl; pour over pork and onion.

2 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Shred pork, using 2 forks. Return pork to cooker and mix well. Stir in stir-fry vegetables and salt. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook 30 minutes or until mixture is hot and vegetables are tender.
