Country Pork

I lost my camera for a while, so I have been catching up! :) This pork was delicious! I based this off of the "Country Rib Sandwiches" from Simple and Delicious, and I obviously did some pretty intense "tweaking" but I was happy with the results. I just love throwing something like this in the morning and having a yummy food smell in the house by dinner time. It was so flavorful- great as a sandwich, on a baked potato, or just by itself! You'll like this one!

Country Pork
1 large onion, chopped
2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs (Why not just a pork roast? It is just so you can call them ribs-- just use a cheap roast!)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup plum sauce (who has plum sauce--honestly--it probably wasn't the best sub, but I used raspberry jam and it was really good.)
1/4 cup chili sauce (I used a can of chili with beans... sometimes I get desperate when I don't have all the right ingredients, but it seems to turn out all right in the end.)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon celery seed (Subbed celery salt)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional (I think this was a good addition!)
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice (I was a little more liberal with it)
8 kaiser rolls, split

Place onion in a 3-qt. slow cooker; top with ribs. Combine the ketchup, plum sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, celery seed, garlic powder, Liquid Smoke if desired and allspice; pour over ribs.
Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until meat is tender. Shred meat with two forks and return to the slow cooker. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve on rolls. Yield: 8 servings.

I just love all the different ways you have of cooking meats! I get stuck in a pork rut, a chicken rut, a beef rut . . . it's nice to shake things up. (Sometimes literally!)
