Crock Pot BBQ Pork Roast

January 11, 2017

This has become one of our favorites, so I figured it was time to record it as a keeper.


  • 1 pork roast (I use tenderloin, about 3 lbs)
  • 1 cup Southern Comfort
  • 1 jar sweet honey barbecue sauce
  • 3 strips (uncooked) thick cut maple bacon
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 jar apple butter
  • 2 pouches Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (I use long grain and wild or brown)
  • salt, pepper, garlic to taste

Put pork roast in large ziploc baggie (I use meat tenderizer on it, both sides)

Add Southern Comfort and barbecue sauce

Zip bag (I double bag) and shake well so entire roast is covered.  Marinate in refrigerator overnight.

Put roast in crock pot with marinade.  Season with salt, pepper, garlic to taste.  Lay strips of maple bacon across the top of the roast.  Add chopped onions.

Cover roast with apple butter.  Use a spatula to spoon marinade from bottom of pot into the apple butter covering the roast until well mixed and covered.

Cover pot and cook on low all day, at least 6 hours (I cook 8 – 10 hours).

Option 1:  30 minutes before serving, shred pork in crock pot.  Add pouches of rice and stir in until well mixed.  Let cook the last 30 minutes so rice thickens.

Option 2:  If you want more liquid, cook rice separately (90 seconds in microwave) and plate.  Put pork on top and pour sauce over everything.

Makes 6 servings.


Crock Pot Pork Chops with Apple Butter

February 11, 2010

Extremely easy recipe for moist, sweet pork chops


4 boneless pork chops
4 strips maple bacon
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
8-12 oz apple butter (I used one whole jar)
salt and pepper to taste


* Place pork chops side-by-side in crock pot
* Season to taste with salt and pepper (I threw in a little garlic powder too)
* Lay strips of maple bacon across the top of the pork chops
* Sprinkle chopped onion on top and around pork chops
* Cover completely with apple butter

Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.

Spread leftover apple butter onto biscuits, mix into mashed potatoes, or save as a spread for deli-meat lunch sandwiches.
