Olympic Dinner

When I am watching the Olympics I don't want to be bothered to cook up a storm and make complicated meals. I want to pay attention to the games and cheer on my fellow Canadians. 

A win can be missed in a moment and I don't like watching the recaps as much as the live show.  You don't have as much adrenaline, you already know what's going to happen, and it's just not as much fun. Watching the recaps without having already seen the live show is almost like reading the last chapter of an exciting book first. 

Today's recipe is a really easy and delicious Pulled Pork Sammie. There's so little work involved that you barely have a chance of missing any of the action in the Olympics and I think it tastes like a gold medal sandwich too. :)

Pulled Pork Sammie

1 large pork loin, cut to fit in a slow cooker
2 medium onion, peeled and quartered
1 head of garlic, peeled and cloves left whole
2 teaspoons paprika
Salt and pepper
2 cups of BBQ sauce, I used my Spicy Peach BBQ Sauce with great success

1. Place the pork loin pieces in your slow cooker and season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Toss in the onions and garlic, cover, and cook on low for about 8 hours. No water, stock, or any liquid is needed, the veggies and the meat are enough!

2. When the pork is finished cooking, take each piece out from the slow cooker and pull it apart into bite sized shredded pieces with forks. Then take out all the garlic and onions and finely chop them. Toss them onto of the pork.

3. Cover the pulled pork, garlic, and onions with BBQ sauce and sandwich between buns. Enjoy!
