Easy Barbecue Pork Roast

Today I have a easy recipe to share with everyone. It's for a Easy Barbecue Pork Roast. This recipe is so easy peasy that I've already made it 3 times in the last three months.

I found this recipe about a year ago on the happy housewife. I've been meaning to make it, but the recipe called for a whole cup of Worcestershire sauce. I just couldn't imagine how that would taste.

I thought how pleasing can a pork roast that's been sitting in a cup of Worcestershire sauce be? Well, I finally bit the bullet and gave this recipe a chance.

I'm so glad I did because you couldn't even taste the Worcestershire sauce when the meat was cooked. This was the most tender, flavorful and delicious pork roast I've had in a long time.

The brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce compliment each other perfectly. I did adapt the recipe slightly by adding a bit of Montreal Seasoning and searing the roast before adding it to the crock pot.
I think by searing a cut of meat first enriches the flavor of the gravy. You can serve this barbecue pork by itself or on rolls for sandwiches.
 My favorite rolls to use are the  Homemade French Bread Rolls . They have a chewy texture just like french bread making them perfect for this recipe.
Keep in mind this is not a traditional BBQ sandwich. The sauce is sweet and tangy, but taste nothing like BBQ sauce. The sauce is more of a cross between a BBQ and Teriyaki sauce.

I think if you give this recipe a chance you will be pleasantly surprised just like I was.

 Before I get into the recipe I wanted to mention that my pork roast of choice is a Sirloin Tip Roast from Costco. Each roast is approximately 2 lbs and priced at $1.99 lb.
 
A four pack runs roughly $15 which is awesome, because it yields 4 meals with plenty of leftovers. 

I use this cut of pork to make Root Beer Pulled Pork, Pork Roast & Gravy, Pork Carnitas, Pork Posole and this yummy BBQ pork recipe.

The four pack is such a awesome deal that I try to purchase it every couple months.

To make this recipe start by rubbing Montreal seasoning all over the pork roast, making sure to cover all sides. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and get the pan nice and hot. 

Add the roast and sear on all sides. You want the roast nice and brown on all sides.Add roast to crock pot. Add Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar.

Cover and cook on high for one hour then turn to low and cook a additional 4-5 hours. Pork roast is fully cooked when it starts to come apart.

Can't wait to try!!! I remember my mom telling me to cook fat side up when utilizing the crock pot....has anyone else heard of this? I did notice a difference when I tried it. The meat seemed more tender and the Hubby noticed it as well, so did our 13 year-old son as well. Lets just say that I was floating on cloud nine with their compliments!
