When our office held a bridal shower, we presented the future bride with a collection of our favorite recipes. I included this BBQ pork sandwich recipe. I like serving this savory pork as an alternative to a typical ground beef barbecue. —Karla Labby, Otsego, Michigan


  • 2 boneless pork loin roasts (3 pounds each)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 1/3 cup steak sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 25 hamburger buns, split


  1. Place roasts in an 8-qt. Dutch oven; add water and salt. Cover and cook on medium-low heat for 2-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 145°.
  2. Remove roasts; let stand for 10 minutes. Shred with a fork; set aside. Skim fat from cooking liquid and discard. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Add the meat, ketchup, celery, steak sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and lemon juice. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 1-1/2 hours. Serve on buns.
