Over the weekend I decided to have the family over for a cookout.
I had bought a set of four pork roasts from Costco and had three left. They were pretty decent sized roasts and I figured three of them would barely fit in our new crock pot.
I rubbed them with extra virgin olive oil and rubbed pork seasoning rub mix all over the outside of the three roasts. I sliced up a lot of fresh garlic cloves and jabbed them into the meat into little slits I made. I also put a bunch of ground pepper on the meat and then seared all the sides of the roasts in a pan on the stove. I cut a large onion in half and put that in the bottom of the crock pot and put the three roasts on top. The lid just fit on over the top of the roasts. I poured in a cup of tomato juice and a cup of chicken stock and put it on low overnight.
at 7 in the morning it smelled great and I turned it down to warm. I took one of the roasts out and cut another one in half. I put it in a tub in the fridge and poured a bunch of sweet and spicy grilling sauce/marinade over them. About three hours later I took those roasts out of the fridge and put them on the grill, slathering on more sauce when I turned them. I only cooked them for a half an hour as they were already cooked.
They turned out great and my mom commented that she thought the pork was especially tender for having cooked it on the grill. That’s good enough for me since it was her day.
I drained the liquid out of the crock pot and pulled the pork apart and sliced up the onions into smaller pieces. Then I mixed in some sweet BBQ sauce. I kept the crock pot on warm for pulled pork sandwiches and nachos later on when some old friends stopped by for a visit. Those turned out great too.
