Pulled Pork and Beans

Servings: 0 servings



If you want to boost flavor in the finished dish, heat a drizzle of oil in a heavy skillet set over medium high heat and brown the meat on all sides before transferring it to a slow cooker or baking dish. Add the remaining ingredients (except the barbecue sauce), cover, and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours (in a slow cooker) or in a 300F oven for 4 - 4 1/2 hours, until the pork falls apart when you poke it with a fork. Skim as much fat as you can off the surface and pull the pork apart, right in with the beans, using 2 forks. Take out any bones if you used bone-in pork. Stir in the barbecue sauce if you like. Serve straight up, over rice, or sloppy joe style on soft buns or slabs of cheese bread.
