Come Home to Barbecue Sandwiches

Although my favorite new kitchen appliance is the electric wok I got for Christmas, I still like to use my crockpot  during this time of year. It is hard enough to get out the door for work and school AND fit in dinner between activities, but this is a easy-to-throw-in-before-you-dash recipe.

Pork Loin Sandwiches with Barbecue Sauce
I put a pork loin into the crock pot. I salt and pepper the loin and cut it in half if needed to fit into the pot. I put 2-3 fresh thyme stems in the pot and about 3/4 cup of water.  I turn it on high and leave it. It can cook for several hours on high - 6 to 8. If you are around to check it, you can turn it over part way through. As long as it has liquid in it, the meat keeps getting more tender. You can turn it down and cook on low for several more hours if you need for it to continue. Break up the meat within the pot. You can serve as it is or have each family member put as much barbecue sauce (our current favorite is Sweet Baby Ray's) on it as he or she would like.

Serve it on thin sandwich buns with fruit and vegetables, and you have a great, warm, welcoming meal.

Do you have an easy crockpot recipe -- share it with all of us!
