Pork with onions and orange juice in the crockpot. Pulled pork sandwiches with slaw for dinner. The house smells delicious.
Recipe? I am sure it can’t be difficult or maybe one at all, but I watched someone use OJ on a BBQ show just today and I assume the acidic character and mild sweetness can only bring more joy to pulled pork! I think I have 6 butts in my freezer still from this fall when they were on sale for $1.29/lb.
2 lbs pork butt, as mentioned you need the fat
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 c OJ
1/2 c water
2 T minced garlic
1 T Dijon mustard
Place pork in crockpot fat side down. Add OJ and water. Mix garlic and mustard together, then spread on pork. Add onions. Cook on low 6-8 hrs.
Remove pork and shred with fork, return to pot. There’s still a lot of liquid, using a slotted spoon dish out pork/onion mix and put on big sandwich buns. I like onion buns. You can add BBQ sauce on top if you wish.
