  19. Pulled Pork Barbecue Pork Roast (approximately 5 pounds) 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/2 cups cider vinegar (that is one and a half cups, not eleven cups ~giggle~) 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon hot sauce 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes Instructions 1.Put roast in slow cooker and sprinkle salt and pepper over. Pour cider vinegar over. Cover with lid and cook on low for twelve hours (I cook it overnight). Remove pork roast and shred with forks (this will be very easy). Drain juices from slow cooker, reserving two cups of liquid. Return pork to slow cooker. To the reserved liquid add: Brown sugar, hot sauce, and crushed pepper flakes. Stir well. Pour over shredded pork and place lid back on. Place on low or warm setting until ready to serve. Can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, reheating in the microwave. 2.I estimate this to make enough for about eight sandwiches, give or take. 3.*This sauce is not spicy. If you prefer a spicier sauce double the hot sauce and crushed red pepper flakes. Add more to taste.

    well Corned beef and cabbage is my fav. But I have a sunny story about a crockpot.  I was at one time living in a not so nice area.  one day my home was broken into.  Literaly, they kicked in my bathroom wall to get in.  My fault really, I shouldn't have locked the door.  Anyway they took everything, (Not that I had much) Everything, except my crock pot.  Spent the summer eating nothing but cock pot meals.  I did enjoy the view of the abandond lot behind my bathroom as I showered in the morning and the birds did sing sweet in the shower curtains.
