Pork Roast Barbecue Recipe

Pork Roast Barbecue Recipe

We live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and pork is a favorite here. I particularly like this recipe because it's prepared the day ahead and only needs to be reheated the next day.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 2-1/2 hours + chilling Bake: 1 hour YIELD:10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 can (16 ounces) tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon each brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon browning sauce, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon each pepper, ground mustard and hot pepper sauce
  • Sandwich buns, optional

Directions

  • 1. Place roast in a heavy 5-qt. roaster or Dutch oven. Combine 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon salt; pour over meat. Cover and simmer for 2 hours. Drain, reserving 1 cup broth. Cool roast for 15 minutes. Cut into thin slices; place in an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine tomato puree, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire, browning sauce if desired, pepper, mustard, pepper sauce, remaining water and salt and reserved broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Pour over meat. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning the meat once.
  • 3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before reheating. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Serve on buns if desired. Yield: 10-12 servings.
