The Simplest of Crockpot Meals

Sometimes I have days that are filled with so many activities and errands, I hardly have time to sit down. In my mind I mentally go over and over everything that must be accomplished, knowing that I really ought to be writing all of these things down, but not really wanting to take the time to locate a pencil and paper. I know that I will be so busy that I won't have much time at the end of the day to spend making dinner. It is just this kind of day that I like to prepare shredded pork sandwiches for dinner. This particular recipe isn't even really a recipe at all. I simply put a small pork roast into the crockpot, pour a bottle of barbecue sauce over it, and that's it. Before dinner, I shred the pork inside the crockpot with two forks, and serve it on warm buns. A super easy dinner, and it puts my mind to rest the remainder of the day, as far as dinner goes, so that I can try and remember the other things that need tending to.

We have been smelling this cooking all day! It smells wonderful. We think it would be good with coleslaw and baked beans, although the corn and seasoned potatoes that you are serving tonight will be very good. We love you!

I have a pork roast in the freezer right now. Hmmmmm . . .

Do you thaw the roast first or just put it in the crockpot frozen?

To "woman of the house" -- I always defrost my meat first before using in the crockpot. This recipe is so ridiculously easy, and it is really good. You should give it a try.

Thanks, Monica! I wasn't sure about defrosting. I've heard of people just plopping frozen meat in their crockpots.

I am definitely going to give this a try. I've already got it on the menu. :-)
