Countries from around the world give special attention to Sunday supper. Often the main day of the week to gather together and sit down to a home-cooked meal. Sunday supper usually is a large piece of meat braised for hours filling the house with smells of good things to come, only having to wait all day to get a taste of the goodness on the stove.
Our Sunday crockpot pork shoulder could not be easier. A few ingredients cut up, added to the crockpot along with the pork shoulder. Setting the temperature to high for 15 to 20 minutes, then turn the temperature to low and forget about it till it's time to eat.
The addition of fire-roasted tomatoes gives the pork a nice sweetness that brings out the natural flavors of the pork. The acid in the tomatoes tenderizes the pork shoulder in the crockpot the entire time cooking. I like adding a little bit of BBQ sauce to bring up the flavor profile. The soft smokiness in the BBQ sauce really brings out a depth of flavor sure to make your family and friends very happy Sunday diners.
