BBQ Recipes: Pork BBQ with Cherry Q Sauce
I came across this recipe today, and I think it would make a pretty good barbecue sauce. Just ignore the author's instructions to cook the pork in a slow cooker, go smoke a butt.
When will the food industry accept that barbecue means low and slow over a wood/charcoal fire? Use of a crock pot does not equal barbecue!
Pork Barbecue with Cherry Q Sauce
Preparation: 10 minutes; cooking time: 8 hours
1/3 cup cherry fruit-only spread
1 tablespoon dried cherries
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
12 ounces amber ale or non-alcoholic beer
2-3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast (pork butt), cut into 2-3 pieces
Combine all ingredients except pork in a small sauce pan and bring to boil; simmer 15 minutes on low. Place pork in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker; pour sauce over. Cover and cook on low 8 hours. Remove pork and shred. Spoon back into slow cooker; mix well and serve.
