Two Great Camping Recipes: BBQ Pork Sandwiches & Blue Cheese Coleslaw

September 8, 2013

Barbeque Pork Sandwiches


Place the pork in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Rub with the brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add ½ cup of the vinegar and ½ cup water.

Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and shreds easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours (the low setting will make total cooking time 8 hours, 10 minutes).

Before serving, transfer the pork to a bowl, discarding the liquid. Using 2 forks, shred the meat. Mix in the barbecue sauce. Serve the pork on the rolls with the coleslaw and the pickles and chips, if desired.

Note from KOA:
For a little more flavor, try mixing in a little BBQ sauce and brown sugar with the vinegar and water that goes into the crock pot. This recipe goes great with the Bleu Cheese Slaw recipe
