Go with traditional barbecue sides here—baked beans, corn on the cob, and slaw. To make the recipe even simpler, substitute your favorite bottled barbecue sauce.


  • 3 1/2 pounds boneless blade pork roast
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup onions (diced)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (OR cider vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons worchestershire
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ketchup, water, lemon juice, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Place the pork in a slow cooker. Reserve 1 cup of the sauce and set the remaining aside in the refrigerator. Use a meat injector to inject the 1 cup of sauce into the meat, piercing it all over 6 to 10 times (depending on your meat injector, you may need to strain the sauce first). Cover the meat and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, until the meat is very tender.
  3. About 30 minutes before the meat is done, bring the remaining sauce to room temperature.
  4. Serve the meat with the sauce.
