Honey and ground ginger are the flavor boosters behind my no-stress sandwiches. A bottle of barbecue sauce ties it all together in a pinch. —Denise Davis, Porter, Maine

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 8 submarine buns, split

Directions

  1. Place onion and roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, water, honey, garlic, seasoned salt and ginger; pour over meat. Cover and cook on high 5-6 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove meat; cool slightly. Shred meat with 2 forks and return to the slow cooker; heat through. Serve on buns. Cut sandwiches in half.
    Freeze option: Place individual portions of cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, gently stirring and adding a little water if necessary. Serve on buns.
