This hearty slow cooker meal is sure to please your hungry family after a busy day. Serve up a generous helping of this tender pork and flavorful beans with a slice of warm corn bread. Mmm! So good!!
1 (3 pound) boneless pork loin roast
1 medium onion, sliced
3 (15 ounce) cans pork and beans
1-1/2 cups barbecue sauce (I like honey hickory flavor)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Cut pork loin roast in half.* Place in a 5 quart slow cooker. Top with the sliced onions. In a medium size bowl, combine the beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and garlic powder. Pour mixture over the meat.
2. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or until meat is tender. Remove cooked roast and shred using two forks. Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker and heat through. Makes 10 servings.
*3 pound or larger roasts should be cut in half to ensure proper and even cooking in a slow cooker. Also, trim as much visible fat from the roast as possible to avoid greasy gravy.
