Crockpot Miracles-BBQ Pork Roast

Edit: Just went over to The Natural Mommy's site and my contribution is super similar to hers...oh well. Here it is anyway!

This Crockpot Miracle was what was on the menu tonight. I am having a variation of this meal only because I was able to get enough meat and BBQ sauce for an entire meal for under $1.00. Total. At Albertson's.

Anyhow, this is not a recipe. Sound familiar?

You can do this with a recipe if you are not so lucky as to have a practically free source of BBQ sauce like I do right now.

Homemade BBQ sauce

1/4 c. (apple) cider vinegar
1/2 c. ketchup or catsup(?)
1/2 c. H2O
3 TBS white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder

In bowl, combine the vinegar, ketchup, water, sugar, salt and chili powder. Mix well.

That's the way to do it if you don't have pre-made BBQ sauce all handy like;)

Here's what I do. Thaw Pork Roast. You can frequently get these for $0.99/lb. Cook in crockpot for 6 hours on high or all day on low. My crockpot is weird so I try to check it frequently so it doesn't get overdone. When cooked all the way through, drain fat. Put back in crockpot or in bowl. Add BBQ sauce (whole bottle may not be necessary...taste as needed...yum! Put on buns for sammies, over noodles or eat by itself next to a pile of potatoes you cooked in the crockpot!
