Two-Night Pork Roast

For the first night, take a 3-4 pound pork roast. Put it under the broiler for about 15-20 minutes, with a little pepper and kosher salt. (I add some poultry seasoning as well but it's not necessary.) Then it goes in the crock pot on high for 5-6 hours with:
a sliced onion (I often use several as they taste so good)
1 clove garlic, pressed (I sometimes use the stuff from a jar)
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup water, and
1 to 2 Tablespoons soy sauce.

After it cooks, remove the meat and most of the onions (and bay leaf), and whisk in flour and a little butter to make gravy from the drippings. Serve over mashed potatoes.

For the second day, make homemade BBQ sauce (or use bottled):
3 cups ketchup
2 cups water
dash Worcestershire
dash olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1-2 teaspoons chili powder

Then, shred leftover pork with a fork. Add to BBQ sauce. Cook on low all day.
Serve on kaiser rolls with cole slaw.

But I'll be honest with you: the stuff from the first night is so popular with my family, we rarely get to the BBQ stage. Also: it tends to fall apart the first night, so we plan to do pulled pork sandwiches the first night and have BBQ on its own the second (if we even get there). Enjoy!
